Hiring an uninsured contractor is one risk you don’t need to take! Why not? Because it just isn’t worth it. When looking for a junk removal company, care should be taken to make sure that they are insured. Here’s why.
Let’s say you need your old broken fridge hauled away. Seems simple enough, right? It is until the person removing the fridge hurts his back in the process. Since the person working on your property was not covered by workers compensation insurance, he has no way to pay for his medical bills. Next thing you know you’re being sued, and since the incident happened on YOUR property, you’ve got a BIG problem! This is just one of many theoretical scenarios that could occur when you deal with uninsured junk removal companies. Junk removal and hauling is physically demanding work. That’s why legitimate Junk Removal companies carry
3 types of insurance
1. General Liability; protects your home and other property
2. Commercial Auto; protects your parked vehicles and other property
3. Workers Compensation; protects you from being held responsible should an injury occur while working on your property
