Why do I need a contractor insurance policy?

Whether you are a general contractor, handyman, or electrician, 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 contractor insurance arranged by Thimble is designed to respond to incidents involving bodily injury and property damage.

What is covered under a contractor and handyman liability insurance policy?

The Contractor and Handyman Liability Insurance Policy by Thimble protects your business when on-the-job incidents end up causing bodily injury or third party property damage.

Bodily Injury
You are working at a client’s property and you leave your toolbelt on the floor while taking your lunch break. During this time, the client walks through your work area and trips over the toolbelt, sustaining an injury.

3rd Party Property Damage
You are installing new cabinets in a client’s home, and while moving materials through the foyer you accidentally knock over and break an expensive antique vase.

Medical Expenses
She also sprained her wrist in the fall. With a general liability policy with Thimble, the cost of her medical treatment will be covered.

Defense Costs
After finishing a debris removal project, a client claims that not all of the shingles from a recent home renovation project were removed. She tripped over a small pile of the scraps, and sues you for the cost of your work.

How much does general liability insurance cost for contractors?

The cost of your Contractor Insurance Policy depends on a few factors. Things like your zip code, your coverage limit, the size of your team, and the length of your coverage all play a factor in determining the risk that comes with insuring your contracting or construction business.

With Thimble, you don’t have to commit to long, expensive policies, though. You can access flexible Contractor Insurance through the Thimble app and customize your coverage down to the month, day, or hour. Plus, if you need to add Additional Insureds, you can tack them on to your coverage with Thimble at no extra cost.
