General Liability Certificate for $2,000,000
Always check to make sure insurance certificates you are shown have a current date. Many tree services are known to say they have coverage in order to land a job, but end up having lapsed or nonexistent coverage. This certificate assures you to be free of liability in the event of damage to your property. Given the sheer weight of large logs and the unpredictability of dead wood, there are times when preventing any and all damage is impossible. However, the best tree services will minimize such damage and will quickly arrange for any necessary repairs. A company’s true colors come out when something goes wrong on a job.
Workers’ Compensation Certificate
Did you know you could be held liable for an injury or death on your property when hiring a tree service which lacks Workers’ Compensation coverage? While many of our competitors may carry Liability Insurance, few have Workers’ Compensation.
This coverage is critical in an industry as dangerous as ours. Sadly, most local tree services skirt the law to save money, leaving their workers and their customers exposed to liability. If they don’t show it to you, they probably don’t have it.
Remember, all insurance is not created equal! Insist on being provided with proof of current Workers’ Compensation coverage. Only Workers’ Compensation shields you from paying for exorbitantly expensive injuries.
