Types of Contractor Insurance in Mississippi

Basic coverage includes general liability and commercial auto insurance. However, as you know, contractors also encounter numerous risks specific to the work they do.

Are you properly covered for the following types of insurance?

  • General Liability: Before you start your next job, ensure that you have the right coverage for bodily injury, property damage, and any mistakes on the job.
  • Commercial Auto: You rely on vans, trucks, and cars to transport your people and equipment to different jobs. Unlike personal auto policies, commercial auto insurance offers add-on protection for equipment such as ladder racks and tool lockboxes attached to your vehicle.
  • Business Owners Policy (BOP): Many contractors look for bundled policies that help them save money and increase their coverage. Contractor BOPs combine essential protection for commercial buildings and personal property.
  • Workers’ Compensation: Do you have a handle on Mississippi laws governing workers compensation? If not, our agents can review your current policy and help you protect your employees if they become sick or injured at work.

We also handle industry specific insurance coverages for businesses of all types, including contractors.
