How Does Contractors Insurance Work?
Electrical contractors insurance begins with purchasing a policy tailored to the contractor’s business. Premiums are paid in exchange for coverage, with the amount determined by factors such as business size and coverage requirements. In the event of covered losses, claims can be filed, and the insurance provider will assess their validity. The provider covers the associated costs if approved, often after the contractor pays a deductible. Policies may need annual renewal with adjustments based on business performance and risk factors.
