Insuring your pest control business
As a pest controller your work is unpredictable and changes from day to day. From insect infestations to larger vermin and animal control, sometimes things can go wrong. Even though you take precautions, the chemicals you use could make a client ill or you might have an accident working in an unfamiliar location. Business insurance for pest controllers from Hiscox provides tailored cover to ensure you and your business are covered when things don’t go to plan, letting you get on with running your business.
Why you need business insurance for pest controllers
Illness and injury
Imagine a client’s neighbour is injured after tripping over a trap set for rats outside both properties. You might have warned the neighbours to be careful, but if they’re hurt, they could still blame you. Public liability insurance from Hiscox as part of a tailored business insurance policy covers you for legal costs and any settlement.
Unable to work
Dealing with a wasps’ nest high in the rafters of a client’s house, you lose your balance and fall off the ladder. It might seem like a silly mistake, but it could result in several weeks off work and being out of action means no income to pay bills or rent. Personal accident insurance provides a weekly pay-out, which means financial commitments are taken care of while you’re off work and recovering.
A camera used for looking into small and hard to reach areas is damaged beyond repair. It’s a key part of your pest control business kit and you can’t complete the job without it. Replacing it is the only option and with portable equipment insurance from Hiscox within your business insurance policy you’ll have the cost of a replacement covered.
