Insurance and getting jobs

Postby Engraver » August 16th, 2010, 11:10 am

I was given this job last week with some changes to it that were supposed to be discussed today. After the discussion of the changes(for window lettering), I was aked to bring a copy of my insurance certificate. This is the first time (Other than major "by the book" businesses) have asked for one. I'm glad I have it or I wouldn't be doing the job.

I guess with the economy and all people are getting more careful with everything they do.

I think alot of people consider it an extra expense...but I see it as "better to be protected...than sorry" Depending on your area and what you do...a couple of jobs MAY pay for it so you don't have to worry about it in this suit-happy world we live in...and it may even get you a job or two to pay for it.

I couldn't agree with you more, Kevin. One accident could wipe you out -- even if it wasn't even your fault. One sign that falls on somebody's head . . . one shower door that breaks when somebody slips and crashes against it . . . and you could be out of business, and (depending on your business structure) out of a home, too. Better safe than sorry.

Yes. Any kind of puddle is undesirable and could sink you!

I agree. We have recently upped our limits on the business insurance because my plans are to move more into the remodeling aspect of the business. It is worth the cost in my opinion...squeshed puddles and everything.
