Buying cheap construction insurance could be an expensive mistake. It can be tempting to get the cheapest policy available but this approach can backfire. If something happens on your project that is not covered by your policy, it could mean a huge cost to your business.
Getting the right coverage for your requirements is not difficult, and it doesn’t have to be expensive. Let’s look at how you can get the right coverage at the right price.
Get cheap Construction Insurance customized for you
Your business is unique because the services you provide are unique to you. There are many trades and professions and role players in the construction industry. A one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to insurance will not meet the needs of all.
Builder’s Risk insurance is customized to what you do and the risks you face. For instance, a General Contractor may need cheap construction insurance coverage for the temporary storage and transportation of expensive equipment to the building site. This may not be required for a painting contractor, or an architect, for example.
Always ask the right questions
So how do you make sure you get the right coverage? At Farmer Brown Insurance we have the knowledge and years of experience to guide you in this process. Our agents will ask you the right questions so you include the items you need, and add any endorsements not generally covered in a policy.
Expert knowledge makes a difference
Builder’s Risk insurance is not complicated but there are things you need to to be aware of. For example Builder’s Risk is for a particular time period whilst the building work is being done. Your policy has a commencement date and an end date. If you don’t know this you could be caught short.
If your policy includes replacement coverage, it is important to value the building or structure properly. The amount you insure for must be how much it would cost to rebuild / replace the building if it was destroyed once completed. If you are under-insured you will pay a co-payment penalty and this could be expensive.
