Plumbing Contractor Insurance provided by Browne Insurance Services

Plumbing insurance gives protection against a wide variety of risks routinely faced by plumbers and plumbing contractors. Adequate protection is essential since one small mistake or accident could result in damages that drain a small business’s finances beyond recovery.
What is Plumbers Insurance?

Plumbers insurance is tailored to be made up of a bundle of policies that offer the best protection against common risks that plumbers face in their day-to-day work, like accidentally damaging a customer’s property.

All contractors benefit from having insurance, and plumbing contractors may benefit the most. As a plumber, you are often called to work on older systems that are delicate but in need of repair. A mistake in your work can cause tens of thousands of dollars in damages. To protect your business and your livelihood, it makes sense to have plumbing contractor insurance. General liability insurance can protect your business from mistakes you make; otherwise, those costs might have to come out of your own pocket.

What Type Of Insurance Plumbing Contractors Need?

When plumbing contractors get an insurance package, there a few options for coverage that are usually recommended. These ensure that your business is as protected as possible. You might notice:

  • General Liability
  • Tools Coverage
  • Auto Insurance
  • Bond

While these are the most common insurance policies in the plumbing business, there are other coverages that plumbing contractors might find helpful. Lost wages coverage may be helpful in making up for lost revenue after a major loss causes a temporary stop in your business operations.

Cost of Insurance for Plumbers?
Many factors determine your insurance cost, like your:
  • Industry
  • Type of assets
  • Property owned
  • Number of employees
  • Size of payroll
  • Claims history

Plumbers face risks on the job every day – from fixing hot water heaters to working in confined spaces. With the right business insurance coverages, you can have peace of mind knowing you and your employees are covered as you work.
