What insurance coverage does a Service Provider need?

If you own a business in Ontario that sells a service rather than a product you might be uncertain about appropriate insurance coverage. Whether you offer services at a brick-and-mortar location, sell services virtually or bring your services to your customers, you’ve likely uncovered a range of perils to your success. The size of your business, the type of services you provide, and the risk inherent in your services all further muddy the waters of risk management. How to keep offering your services while protecting what you have built is where we come in.

Our Excalibur commercial insurance specialists are familiar with the challenges service providers face. It could be a customer whose conditions worsen after your physiotherapy treatment.

Any one of these potential exposures can be daunting. Rest assured that our brokers will perform a commercial insurance review of all possible coverages to protect you from significant loss.

Our team of defenders has your back, with insurance coverage to keep you open and operating.

Let Us Pinpoint the Coverage You Need to Grow Your Business.

Our Excalibur Insurance Brokers will ask a lot of questions – for good reason. Professional service providers offer such a wide range of services, it is our job to determine the range of inherent risks. There will be coverages you need to begin serving clients, open a store, or protect yourself from employee actions as your team expands. As well the possibilities of data breaches or cyber-attacks all involve risk regarding profit and success.

You are busy offering first-rate client service and making decisions, let our team review what elements of your unique services pose risks. Our team is there to ensure you have exactly the coverage you require. Risk management will be critical to the success and growth of your service business.

We begin by acknowledging the risks, then prioritizing those in terms of what is most urgent, or likely. Then we’ll develop a plan to manage, mitigate, transfer, accept or even avoid those risks.

Here are a few areas of specialized concern you may want to consider when reviewing your coverage.

  • Business Interruption Insurance for Professionals
    Life happens, and accidents can occur at any time. If something happened that forced you to close shop or discontinue your services for a while, you might still be left on the hook for lost profits, rent, utility expenses, and employee wages. This coverage will help cover these costs up to the amount of loss that was sustained so you can open your doors once everything is back to business as usual.
  • Contractual Risk
    This covers the agreements between your business and a third party, such as a distributor or a retail business, for your business to produce and sell an agreed-upon quantity of your product. Failure to meet this deadline may result in reputational harm and a client could refuse to work with you later.Contracts should be effectively communicated, staff should be trained and up to date on priorities, and your business should avoid taking on tasks that are beyond its capacity to handle or clients that may have conflicting expectations.

These are just a few of the risks your employees and customers face. To keep your team operating at its best our Excalibur Commercial Insurance specialist will review coverage options with you.
