Artisan contractors fall into a category of specialized workers who primarily work under general contractors. Artisan contractor work can include electrical, plumbing, roofing, framing and HVAC. Both the work and risks can vary with each contractor and leave the business exposed for claims. Generally, work can involve operating dangerous, specialized equipment and physical labor. A customer could be injured during an artisan contractor’s work or valuables on a job site may go missing and lead to accusations against your artisan contractor business. If you want to be protected under such circumstances, you must carry an artisan contractor insurance policy.
When choosing which artisan contractor insurance policies best fit the unique risks of your business, there are many options and it can be somewhat confusing. Working with your agent to choose the right plan will protect you, your business, your employees and others who come into contact with your business.
General liability insurance is familiar to many because it is the most common type of insurance. It offers the most comprehensive coverage and provides protection against third-party lawsuits claiming property damage, bodily injury and personal injury. It is probable that a claim will be filed against you at some point, whether it has merit or not, and a general liability plan will offer complete coverage should you need it. For example, a worker could accidentally damage wiring in the wall while doing renovations and the customer might sue your business. A general liability insurance policy takes care of the legal costs, settlements and any necessary repairs to the property.

A business owners policy (BOP) for artisan contractors is ideal protection for your business against risks. Artisan contractor services can involve the handling of dangerous machinery and tools, physical labor and other hazards; it is therefore vital that your business has coverage in place that addresses any possible risks. A BOP distinguishes itself from other policies in that it packages general liability insurance and property insurance together, which reduces the cost for small businesses. The general liability component of this bundled plan ensures that your business is protected from liability claims such as property damage, bodily injury or personal injury. Typically, the policy will cover such costs as defense costs, settlements and judgments. The property insurance component protects your business assets, which could include office space, equipment and supplies, from damage, loss or theft.
