The Importance of Business Insurance for Road Surfacing Contractors

Road surfacing is a varied job that includes building new roads or highways, repairing or widening roads, resurfacing and repairing potholes, and constructing cycle paths. But each of these roles has a common element – they present numerous risks to yourself, your fellow workers, and the general public.

The plant, equipment, and materials you use are hazardous to you, your customers and colleagues, and the public. A miscalculation, such as getting the camber on a road incorrect, could have disastrous consequences.

With such heavy risks, potential indemnity or liability claims can be stressful, time-consuming and costly, so it’s crucial that you have adequate cover to help smooth over any claims that may arise.

Our solution can incorporate cover for your vehicles and plant, your property, and materials. We can also cover you for unexpected situations, such as damage to underground services, and cleaning up if your actions have mistakenly resulted in contamination or pollution to the environment.
