Insurance Question


What kind of insurance are you guys carrying? Iím trying to get Contractors Insurance and finding it almost impossible to find. I'm a small company that does mobile work and I also have a shop.

Any suggestions would be very helpful.

Re: Insurance Question


Where have you looked ?

Need to go to a broker who has multiple co's they can shop you to.

A broker who knows small contractors is a gift. Look up the local home builders website and you'll see ins. brokers advertising there.

You may have to move your truck, house to one ins. co. to make your cont. ins. fly.

NY --- gonna be high $ I suppose. Let us know what you come up with.

Re: Insurance Question


I can ask my broker if they write in NY or if they have a relationship there. They have Westfield ins. that will write for blasting.

Did everything work out? Who did you end up going with? I am having a similar issue and could use a little advice.

Is it possible to get insurance policies that are job specific?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
