Frequently asked questions:


Why do I require commercial general liability as a contractor?

The most important type of insurance you need as a contractor is often commercial general liability, which acts as protection from many possible financial losses (ie. liability claims related to accidents at work such as injury to a third party or property damage). A single accident can result in a liability lawsuit that you may not be able to recover from financially. Commercial general liability covers risks like:

  • Injury to another person who is not your employee.
  • Damage to someone’s property.
  • Damage to rented property.
  • Medical bills if someone is injured.
  • Legal and settlement costs of liability lawsuits filed against you.
  • Liability lawsuits related to libel and slander.

General liability insurance is well worth the investment. Handyman and contractor businesses should never be without it. Your premium will depend on factors such as how many employees you have, what projects you take on, your income, location and how experienced you are.

Could you tell me more about commercial vehicle insurance for contractors?

Commercial vehicle insurance is similar to your personal car insurance policy and covers:

  • Third-party liability, which covers injury and property damage to another person.
  • Accident benefits, which is coverage that assists you if you are injured in an accident.
  • Collision, which covers damage to your vehicle if it is in a collision with another car or object.
  • Comprehensive, which covers damage to your vehicle not related to a collision such as theft, fire, vandalism, and hail.
