Additional Coverage Considerations for Missouri Contractors
Inland Marine Coverage:
- Equipment and Tools: The cost of tools and equipment for Contractors can add up rapidly. Depending on the total value owned, it may make sense to Insure.
Installation Floater (Coverage for Project Material): Depending on the size of the job, Project Material Values could be very significant for Contractors. A Contractors Installation Floater will cover your Project material at your premises, in transit, in temporary storage and at project sites.
For each of your projects, it will be important to know who has the duty to insure Project Material prior to completion of the project - this should be defined in the Construction Contract.
Simply stated this is additional Liability Protection for your business.
If a Contractor has a General Liability or Business Auto claim that exhausts the limits of their policy, the assets of their Business will be exposed to pay the remainder of the settlement - this could be financially devastating. Accordingly, it is a good idea to have a Commercial Umbrella Policy.
If you are a Commercial Contractor, the potential exists, at some point in time, that you will be required by an Owner or a General Contractor to have an Umbrella policy in order to be hired for a project. Common Umbrella Limit Requirements are $1,000,000 - $5,000,000.
