What Is Soundproofing Contractor Insurance?
Soundproofing insurance refers to a customized insurance bundle that protects soundproofing engineers and contractors against the unique risks and liabilities that they face. Bundles typically include general liability insurance, as well as additional coverage plans tailored to their specific needs. Some of these may include:
Commercial General Liability Insurance
Running a soundproofing business is tough work. You have a responsibility not only to your clients and employees but also to keep third-party individuals and other properties safe throughout your construction work.
Commercial general liability insurance protects your business from legal claims arising from third-party bodily injury, third-party property damage, as well as libel, slander, and copyright infringement.
Commercial Auto Insurance
Providing soundproofing solutions to clients all over the city can be difficult without a company-owned car. However, unforeseen events can happen while on the road that can result in costly repairs and high medical fees.
Commercial auto insurance protects your workers and your business from financial loss by providing repairs and replacement coverage or helping pay for medical expenses in the event of a road accident. This policy also provides coverage for vehicle theft or vandalism.
Commercial Property Insurance
Whether you own your office space or rent it, you still need a risk management strategy in the event of property damage or physical loss of the building’s contents.
Commercial property insurance helps protect your finances against costs arising from theft and/or vandalism, natural disasters that damage industrial buildings and commercial spaces, or interrupt your business’s daily operations. This insurance policy also includes coverage for repair or replacement fees and lost income.
Errors & Omissions Insurance
Errors and Omissions insurance—a.k.a professional liability insurance—protects your business and employees against negligence claims while on the job. This type of policy also covers media liability or advertising injuries. However, it does not cover criminal or fraudulent acts and violations of securities.
