When working at heights, not only should you be fully trained and have all the right safety equipment, you also need to be insured.
In the event that something drastic or unexpected happened (which we would hope would be the slimmest of chances to happen) then having insurance is a must.
It is kind of complicated, but to put it simply. We are working on your property as a commercial contractor so therefore, if we have a fall, it is not covered by your insurances and if we did not have our own insurance, then you could be held liable for our fall (yes we know this sounds crazy) and payable for medical costs and damages or loss of income!
That’s why we cover our own insurance. That way, you have peace of mind that we are doing the right thing with the right safety equipment, but also that if something did happen, we are covered by our insurance, not you!
If you are having any trades or contractors come onto your commercial site or your residential home, make sure you check they are fully insured. You will be good to go with Gutter-Vac, our franchisees are not able to work without up to day and current insurances.
