If you’re the owner of a plumbing business, large or small, you know the risks your business faces. From potential property loss, to road accidents with your work trucks and other vehicles, or issues with installations, you need to make sure your business is covered.

If you own a plumbing company, or you’re in charge of its risk management decisions, you have a huge responsibility. With everything else you need to do each day, you probably don’t have time to know all the ins and outs of your business insurance policy. That’s where Lapointe Insurance can help. We are a local family agency, who know’s what it is like to run a business: From managing our staff, to delivering a great product, and continuing to grow, sometimes it feels like there isn’t enough time in the day. When it comes to our clients, our priority is helping them plan for a solid financial future. We have years of experience working with Massachusetts and Rhode Island plumbing contractors, helping them design specialized insurance plans that fit their unique needs.

Plumbing contractors need plumbing insurance for a number of reasons. Just one accident or mistake on a job could result in devastating financial damages. We provide solutions customized to your plumbing business and we are always available in the event of a claim.

Some important risks you will want to consider are:

  • Damages during new construction: If you primarily work with new projects, you can be responsible for leaking water lines that damage the new construction. This could include work delays or damage to building materials. The claims can amount to many thousands of dollars out of pocket depending on the length of the disruption and the scope and type of building damage.
  • Damages to existing pipes: If the work you perform results in damage to existing plumbing, the costs to rectify the damage can be exorbitant unless you have coverage in place for these costs.
  • Damages that result in gas explosions: Since you work in, around and sometimes on gas pipes, there is the risk of an explosion which can cause extensive damage. This may be result in fire damage or damage from the explosion itself. The cause of the explosion may be hard to pinpoint and you may have to defend yourself against a lawsuit. Plumbers liability insurance provides coverage for legal claims.

Plumbing is a messy business, considering you work with water, sewage, and drainage lines in and around buildings. Whether you are a pipe-fitter, plumber, or septic installer, you might be wondering why you even need insurance. The best place to start is by working with an independent agent like Lapointe Insurance.

3 Reasons You Must Have Plumbing Insurance

  • You may be required by the state to have insurance for your license
  • If you are a GC, you might need plumbers insurance to work with plumbers.
  • Property owners or General Contractors will require a certificate or proof of insurance before hiring you for a job.

Massachusetts and Rhode Island plumbers have some unique risks, and each company is different. To make sure you get the right policy for the best possible price, we take the time to listen to your business’ story, learn about your people, and see where your operation’s greatest risks are. We then help design a program that best fits your needs. With over a dozen companies to choose from, we can assure you that we have the right solution.

The coverages we recommend you consider are:

  • Commercial auto insurance: Helps pay for any claims resulting from an employee’s accident while driving a company vehicle, or their own vehicle while on company time.
  • Workers compensation insurance: Protect those who work for you. This coverage can replace lost wages, pay for medical treatment and protect your business and its assets if an employee suffers a serious injury.
  • Errors and omissions insurance: Protect against customers’ claims for negligent acts, errors or omissions committed during business activities that result in a loss for the client.
  • Property in transit coverage: Protects the valuable equipment you use to perform your contracting services. It can cover losses to goods that occur at your premises, while being transported to or from your premises, or while in storage.
  • Contractors equipment coverage: Protect your valuable tools and machinery against damage while on the job. Common tools include those used in construction, landscaping and engineering, such as compressors, pumps, saws and other portable equipment.
  • Equipment leased or rented from others coverage: Protect equipment that you have rented or leased for your business, such as forklifts, cranes and backhoes.
  • Employee dishonesty coverage: Get coverage to help recover losses from employee theft. Work with your agent to find the right amount of coverage for your business.

We want you to be able to focus on growing your plumbing business, and delivering a great service to your clients. You shouldn’t have to worry about the unexpected. Give us a call, fill out the form on this page, or stop by one of our three convenient locations to get the coverage you need.

I am so glad we decided to call Lapointe!

We ran into an issue with our previous homeowner's policy coverage, and Linda Pratt from Lapointe was able to quote us for a new policy with comparable coverage, and we had a new homeowner's policy within a couple of days. Linda was thorough, helpful, efficient and friendly. She followed-up to make sure all of our questions were answered and our issue resolved. I am so glad we decided to call Lapointe! Thanks for all your great help, Linda!

I think she deserves a raise!

My Insurance agent at Lapointe is Erin Plocica and she is fabulous! We recently got into an accident so there were a lot of moving pieces to figure out and she was on the ball and looked into everything I needed her to efficiently. I think she deserves a raise!
