Cabinet installation companies are part of the finish carpentry industry. These specialty carpenters typically install built-in wood cabinets that are constructed at the construction site (typically a residence), or that are constructed at their own facility and then transported to the residence and installed.

Cabinet installation companies face complex, costly risks every day, from project start to finish and even beyond. If an accident or some type of property damage occurs during a project, the losses can be costly and disruptive to your business.

You need a comprehensive business insurance program to help cover your financial losses when things go wrong. A local independent insurance agent can help you find the cabinet installation insurance coverage that meets your needs and budget.

Why Do You Need Cabinet Installation Company Insurance?

Cabinet installation companies face the potential for losses in the form of:

  • Property losses due to theft, vandalism, fire, smoke, or severe weather
  • Business interruptions and lost income due to property losses
  • Employee illness, injury, or death
  • Negligence claims and lawsuits

Cabinet installation company insurance helps you mitigate the costs related to these and other kinds of losses.

What Does General Liability Insurance Cover?

You need general liability insurance for occasions when your business is negligent and causes bodily injury or property damage to a third party. This could mean a customer gets injured while visiting your showroom or shop, or that you damage a home while you’re installing the cabinets.

Commercial general liability (CGL) insurance protects you if someone sues you for negligence. It covers damages for the injured party (e.g., property repairs, medical bills). It also covers your attorney fees and court costs, as well as financial settlements or court-ordered judgments up to the limits of your policy.

What Other Kinds of Liability Insurance Do You Need?

If you own trucks or other vehicles, commercial auto insurance covers your owned vehicles and drivers if an accident or other vehicle damage occurs. Commercial auto insurance provides coverage for property damage and bodily injury liability claims, vehicle damage, and medical bills, as well as any costs related to lawsuits due to auto accidents involving your vehicles.

You may want to talk to your independent insurance agent about your need for commercial umbrella insurance. It provides an extra layer of liability protection to any of several other liability policies you might have. Commercial umbrella insurance kicks in when the limits of your other applicable insurance policies have been exhausted, protecting you if a claim exceeds the amount of coverage available from any other applicable policy.

What Does Commercial Property Insurance Cover?

Cabinet installation companies also need to protect their valuable property and equipment with various forms of property insurance.

The most basic is commercial property insurance. It covers your office space, warehouse, showroom, shop, or other buildings and their contents for losses due to fire, theft, vandalism, weather events, and other unexpected events.

Commercial property policies also typically include business interruption coverage. It reimburses you for lost income and helps pay for certain ongoing expenses if you are temporarily unable to operate due to a covered property loss.

How Can You Cover Your Tools and Equipment at a Job Site?

Cabinet installation companies are likely to need to cover tools and equipment when they are away from the primary business premises. You may need the following to supplement your commercial property insurance:

  • Inland marine insurance protects your equipment, tools, portable computer equipment, and other supplies from theft, loss, or damage while they are in transit to and from worksites, such as in your work trucks. It is especially important if you store your tools and equipment in your truck or another vehicle.
  • Builders risk insurance is often included in an inland marine insurance policy. It provides coverage for damage, theft, or loss of tools and equipment at a worksite, as well as for structures that are under construction that are damaged by fire, wind, hail, or other covered perils.
  • An installation floater protects materials that are left at a job site to be installed but get damaged before you can do it.
  • A tools and equipment floater can normally be added to your property damage coverage. It covers any leased or owned specialized tools and equipment for your business while they’re stored on the construction site. It can offer coverage for tools like hand tools, power tools, contractors’ gear (hard hats, goggles, etc.), and more.

Talk to an independent insurance agent to determine whether you need these types of coverage.

How to Protect Your Cabinet Installers with Workers’ Compensation Insurance

Keeping your employees safe from work-related injuries and illnesses is important for their long-term health and satisfaction, as well as your company’s financial viability. Excessive employee injuries and illnesses can be financially devastating for your business.

Workers’ compensation insurance provides coverage when accidents happen in the workplace. It ensures that the injured worker gets medical care and income protection while unable to work.

Workers’ compensation insurance provides benefits to injured workers regardless of who is at fault for their injury. And it will provide death benefits for a worker’s dependents if there is a fatality.

A Note about Contractors Bonds

You may need a variety of contractors bonds, or surety bonds, for every project. Contractors bonds are often essential for finding, securing, and performing work for many types of construction projects that you might work on. They may be required by a project owner in order for your bid to be accepted, and they typically guarantee some aspect of the bidding process and the contract.
