What kinds of business insurance coverage should I include in my commercial insurance policy?

This is far too broad a question to answer in general terms. We offer guidance based on your specific needs to ensure you have appropriate coverage based on related risks to your business.

How much coverage do I need for commercial general liability insurance?

Our commercial insurance agents base your commercial general liability (CGL) coverage limit based on the specific risks to your business. We perform industry-related risk assessments to ensure you have enough coverage for the predicted costs related to those risks.

Do I need contractor insurance as a handyman?

Depending on the services you offer, you might not be required by law to have insurance in order to operate as a handyman. However, insurance is designed to protect you against the same liabilities faced by a contractor. As a self-employed handyman, you can be found negligent for injuries or damages caused on the job, which means you will be personally and financially responsible for any settlements and legal fees.

Coverage is subject to policy wording, terms, conditions and deductibles. Protection is limited to the perils, coverage, exclusions and limits shown on the policy
