What kind of insurance is best for handymen?
As a handyman, you provide specialized services to your customers, so you face unique risks. At Hiscox, we understand these risks and customize insurance for your handyman business to fit your specific needs.
General Liability Insurance
General liability insurance, sometimes called Commercial General Liability (CGL), could protect your business from another person or business’s claims of bodily injury, associated medical costs, and damage to property. Having this kind of coverage is beneficial in several instances:
- Bodily injury: An elderly client trips over your ladder, falling and breaking their arm. You could be liable for medical costs, but your handyman insurance policy could cover those costs, protecting your business.
- Property damage: A customer hires you to replace several interior doors in their antique home. While you are working on the job, your helper drops one of the doors and it lands on a collection of antique figurines, smashing several of them. A handyman liability insurance could cover the cost to replace the items, protecting your business.
- Personal injury: One of your employees is at lunch. He talks to the owner of the shop about one of your clients in a false and unflattering way. The client learns of this discussion and sues for slander. We will cover the subsequent claim, up to your general liability policy's limits of liability, and pay for an attorney to defend you if necessary.
