Advantage Insurance Network serves the contracting businesses of Cincinnati, OH and the surrounding areas with quality insurance services.
Who Needs Contractor’s Insurance?
Contractor’s insurance may also be referred to as small business insurance and anyone in businesses such as HVAC, General Contracting, Plumbing, Handyman, Electrician, Tile, Outdoor Excavations, Landscaping, Interior or Exterior Painting, or the like should protect themselves with a small business insurance policy specific to their contractor needs.
How much contractor’s insurance is needed?
A basic general liability policy is needed for any business owner who has an employee in the state of Ohio. Your policy will start with this general requirement and build from there to meet your companies specific needs. How much you need exactly is determined by your personal risk levels and how much you stand to lose if certain events occur. If you use vehicles in the process of running your business then you need a commercial auto policy as well. And you must carry a minimum level of Ohio worker’s compensation in case one of your employees is injured on the job, even if you only have one employee. Beyond that, you may want to add certain elements like flood insurance for your building and umbrella insurance for unique risks in your line of work. We will be happy to answer any questions you may have about this.
