Tools and Equipment

Insuring the tools you use for your trade is vital. In the main, contractors consider their work tools an indispensable part of running their businesses. You can in most cases insure your hand tools and power tools against damage, theft or loss under your general liability insurance. It is essential you choose the correct insurer and have a conversation with your broker, as not all insurers will allow tools to be added to their product.
