Not Knowing The Secrets of How To Save Big Money Every Year On Your Insurance

  1. Do Business With A Contractor Insurance Specialist~ Insurance is a huge industry. Anything you can have, do, own, manage or whatever-there’s insurance for it. And nobody can specialize in all of it. In fact, a professional insurance agent can only specialize in a few niches- and really understand them. If someone specializes in insuring homes, autos, retail stores, etc., it doesn’t mean that they know anything about contractors.The average insurance agency is just not equipped to handle the special insurance needs of a contractor. Not getting the right advice on how to deduct from uninsured subcontractors, properly classify your workers, and how to make sure that your Certificates of Insurance are valid can cost you big money! Furthermore, untold savings will result from an insurance agent who reviews your audit for mistakes and verifies the accuracy of your experience modification. In contractor insurance, advice and service is everything.
