From serious bodily injuries to damage to your client's garden, running a fence installation contractor business is no easy job and carries a great degree of risk that can lead to lawsuits and expensive claims.

This is why you need to take out fence installation insurance to free your business from liability and cover for compensation as well as legal and medical fees when unfortunate events take place.

Why Do Fence Installation Contractors Need Insurance?

Fence installation contractors work hard to build fences, gates, and other structures that protect homes from intruders. In the event of a fence installation or repair project going wrong, you could be held liable for any injuries sustained by people on your client's property as well as damage to their gardens due to negligence during the course of your business.

If there is an accident, you could face hefty claims and lawsuits. Not only that but if your clients decide to sue you for damages and they end up winning, your fence installation insurance will cover all the costs involved.

In other cases, you will simply need fence installation insurance because it is required by law, meaning that you can't legally run your business without one.

Fence installation contractors can benefit from various types of insurance policies. The level of cover you need will depend on the number of employees you have, the number of company cars your business owns, the state you operate out of, the customers you deal with, and more.
