What's Covered

Carpenter insurance is essential, but an annual commitment doesn't accommodate every business's ups and downs.

The coverage arranged by Thimble is flexible, so you can build a policy that suits your schedule and your budget.

65% of carpenter policies are for 30 Days or less
"With an annual policy, you have to pay upfront, which can be difficult for a small business like mine. What distinguished Thimble was the hourly rate." Reis T., Charity’s Roof and Gutter Cleaning

Insurance designed for small business

  • Why do I need an carpenter insurance policy? As an carpenter, you know that there are risks inherent to your job. You need an insurance policy that's built to protect—and flexible enough to accommodate your schedule.

    The General Liability insurance arranged by Thimble is designed to respond to incidents involving bodily injury and property damage. For example:

    Bodily Injury
    You are installing cabinetry in a client’s newly renovated kitchen. The client walks through the area in which you are working and steps on a cabinet screw, injuring their foot.
    Property Damage
    You are installing interior window trim in a client’s home. As you are casing the window, you lose your grip on your brad nail gun and it falls onto an antique wooden table, cracking its surface.
  • How much does small business insurance for carpenters cost? Our premium pricing is determined based on the length of your coverage, whether for an hour, a day, a month, or longer. This flexibility allows you to purchase coverage exactly when and for how long you need it, making it the most affordable option on the market for on-demand small business insurance.

    Our rates start at $5/hour, $21/day, and $50/month with $0 deductible for a $1 million policy.

Handymen + Contractor insurance protects your business from lawsuits, if you or your property accidently hurts a third party or damages their property.
