Insurance – Tree care insurance – Tree Insurance Coverage
The most important point on your checklist is that you be protected from liability should a company employee, or anyone else be injured on your job. Beware of some tricks that many tree companies employ to fool you into thinking they have valid tree care insurance that will protect you.
Here are some tricks, which if used, will not give you any protection, and leave you liable for any injury or death of any workers:
- They will show you a copy of their insurance, but it may be canceled.
- The name on the policy will be different to the name of the contractor on your contract.
- Your contractor will have a valid insurance policy, but the coverage may not include tree service, because the so called tree service contractor has declared himself to be a general contractor, in order to escape the high cost of tree service insurance. General contractor insurance is much cheaper. The problem is that the insurance company will not cover you once they discover that a contractor whose main business is tree service makes a claim.
