Four types of insurance all electricians need to have:
- Property damage coverage: Property damage provides coverage in the event there is any damage to the office, warehouse or any other space you own or rent for your electrician business. In addition to having this policy, you can also add a clause covering tools and equipment.
- General liability insurance: General liability insurance will cover your business if a third party (someone who doesn’t work for your company) is injured or sustains property damage as a result of your company doing business.
- Workers compensation: Workers compensation is the best thing an employer can provide for their employees. This policy covers your employees if they are injured, become sick or are killed because of a work related accident.
- Business income or loss of income insurance: Business income insurance provides coverage in the case something happens, like a natural disaster, that prevents you from running your electrical contracting business.
