What Is Electricians Insurance?

Our New Brunswick electricians insurance package covers a wide range of protections for all types of electrical business including maintenance and repair services, HVAC services, lighting, construction installations and subcontracting,

We provide essential coverage and options that include:

  • Electrical contractors' commercial general liability (CGL) insurance of $1million or a higher limit if you want, to protect you against the costs of lawsuits, damages and injury claims.
  • Professional liability protection (sometimes called errors and omissions insurance) services you provide and against claims of professional negligence.
  • Commercial coverage for your buildings, workshops, tools and equipment, including optional coverage for on-site equipment, sometimes referred to as installation floater insurance. This can protect against fire, theft, vandalism and certain types of storm damage.
  • Electricians' commercial auto insurance for your business vehicles, with optional coverage for employees using their own cars for work, as well as hired vehicles.
  • Business Owners Policies (BOPs), which combine several different types of coverage into a single policy
  • Cyber liability insurance to defray the costs arising from data breaches and identify theft claims.
  • Business interruption insurance to protect against losses if your activities are disrupted by a covered incident.
  • Employee dishonesty insurance -- crucial for protection when your employees are frequently on others' premises.
  • Builders risk insurance, which provides protection during project development and construction, before completion.
  • Contractor surety bonds, which are often required by local governments or other major project commissions.
