As a painter, you need a lot of tools and equipment to get your job done. So it’s safe to say that you’ve invested a lot of money to build your business’s inventory.
But what would happen if your tools were lost, or your painting equipment were stolen? Would you have the money to replace them all?
That’s why we recommend adding contents coverage to your painters insurance. Contents coverage provides financial compensation in the event your tools and equipment are damaged or stolen during the course of your work. If this happens, your policy may cover the cost of repairing or replacing those items (up to your selected coverage).
Our contents coverage can be affordably added to our general liability insurance policies, so make sure you request it when shopping for a quote.
Workers compensation insurance protects your painting business by covering lost wages, medical bills, and any legal costs associated with an employee getting hurt while working for you.

Without a doubt, yes! Painters insurance can provide crucial protection for your finances, your employees, and your tools, as well as the safety and property of your customers. Without painters liability insurance, you may be held responsible for any damages or accidents caused by your business. That means you’d have to pay for those damages out-of-pocket, regardless of how much they are.
