Often there will be a contractual obligation to arrange insurance before the job has started, so don’t get caught short. Contact Bridges Insurance Services for specialist advice from expert Hamilton-based insurance brokers and professional insurance solutions.
Construction insurance is an essential part of your insurance package
If you are in the building industry, construction insurance or contract works insurance is a vital part of your insurance. Contract works insurance protects you from losses during a building project and can prevent issues that may force your business to leave the job or even close down.
Alongside construction insurance, Bridges Insurance Services recommends that builders also consider:
- Commercial vehicle insurance including heavy vehicle insurance to protect work vehicles from breakdown or theft
- All relevant liability insurance for tradespeople including Licensed Building Practitioners and Defective Workmanship
- Business insurance
Our team can also advise you on personal insurance including home and contents insurance and car insurance to protect your personal items, when your building project is complete.
House building insurance cover can be arranged per project or annually. If you are in the construction industry and are undertaking a number of projects each year, annual cover may be more practical. Annual policies usually cover all contracts during the term of the policy which are up to a specified value. Projects over the agreed value will need to be insured separately.
The team of experienced Waikato-based insurance brokers at Bridges Insurance Services can help you arrange the policy that best suits your needs. If you are a small building company or sole trader, talk to our team about specialist trades insurance that covers everything including public liability insurance, vehicle cover and more all in one easy to manage package.
