Contractor's tools and equipment insurance

This policy helps pay for repair or replacement of a contractor’s tools and equipment if they are lost, stolen, or damaged. The items typically must be less than five years old.

Protect your landscaping business while on the go

Commercial property insurance covers your building (if you own it) and its contents, but it doesn’t cover mobile property. Whether you provide lawn maintenance or tree removal services, your landscaping business likely involves transporting equipment, tools, and other supplies. That's why you may need contractor’s tools and equipment insurance, which covers work items no matter where you take them.

This policy typically provides coverage for:

  • Powered equipment, such as lawn mowers and leaf blowers
  • Hand tools, such as shovels, rakes, and hoes
  • Equipment you lease to others

Bundle policies to save money and increase coverage

If you run a small landscaping business, you may want to look into adding contractor’s equipment insurance to your general liability insurance or business owner's policy. This insurance provides coverage for up to $10,000. For more expensive equipment, you may need inland marine insurance.

Contractor’s tools and equipment insurance is a type of inland marine insurance designed specifically for contracting and construction businesses. Talk to a licensed Insureon agent about contractor’s equipment coverage for your lawn care or landscaping business.

Other important policies for landscaping businesses

Contractor’s tools and equipment insurance protects the equipment you need to run your business, but it doesn’t provide coverage for other common risks. Business owners in lawn care, tree service, and other landscaping professions should also consider:

General liability insurance: This policy can cover expenses related to customer injury or property damage, such as a client who sues an irrigation company for damage to a lawn.

Commercial auto insurance: This policy covers vehicles owned by your landscaping business. It typically pays for accidents, vehicle theft, and certain types of damage.

Workers’ compensation insurance: Required in almost every state for landscaping businesses that have employees, workers’ comp can cover medical fees for work injuries.
