Appliance repair contractors are exposed to a number of risks ranging from the theft of valuable tools and equipment to bodily injury and even damage to the customer's appliance and property.

With adequate appliance repair business insurance, you can shield your business against lawsuits, claims, and hefty medical bills that result from unforeseen accidents.

Why Do Appliance Repair Businesses Need Insurance?

Businesses that provide appliance repair services need insurance to protect themselves from potential accidents that can then lead to lawsuits and claims, which more often than not are only resolved with monetary compensation.

And if there is no insurance policy in place to cover the cost of the claim, the business will have to step in and pay it up. This can seriously affect the financial standing of any business, especially if it's a small company, which is why appliance repair insurance is recommended.

For example, if a contractor is working on an appliance and accidentally damages it, the business could be held liable. In other cases, the issues can come from within the company. As an example, if an employee is moving an appliance for repair and gets injured while doing so, the business could be held responsible.

Having insurance helps to protect the business from these types of risks, which are more common than many appliance repair contractors think.

What Types of Insurance Do Appliance Repair Businesses Need?

Appliance repair businesses can mostly benefit from a couple of different insurance policies. Generally speaking, the level of cover you need will depend on how big your business is, the clients you work with, the number of staff you employ, the number of company cars the business owns, the total value of your equipment, and more.

In more rare cases, claims related to road accidents, theft of tools and equipment, and payment disputes with clients are made.
