Installation Builders Risk 

Subcontractors and service providers face a range of exposures on and off the job site. Their package policy may provide a sub limit for installation but is it enough and is the coverage adequate? Installation builders risk insurance provides course of construction coverage for property of the insured and property of others that are being installed or awaiting installation. This inland marine policy helps to protect subcontractors and service providers from the exposures they face during installation.

The US Assure Builders Risk Plan insured by Zurich offers trade contractors, including plumbers, electricians, carpenters, commercial landscapers, and other service providers, comprehensive insurance coverage and flexible policy options for installation projects of any size and value. Written on the nation’s number one builder risk policy, US Assure’s installation product provides inland marine coverage for residential and commercial businesses installing equipment or other material. Our installation builders risk product offers a single project policy or a blanket policy for contractors performing multiple jobs in one or more states. Whether installing an air conditioning unit or cell tower, the US Assure Builders Risk Plan insured by Zurich provides broad coverage for materials and equipment during installation.
