We hear it all the time: “I don’t need contracts. I’m a handshake kind of guy.” Good people who trust each other don’t tend to think they need contracts or even insurance for that matter. But, the issue with relying on a handshake goes beyond personal trust. The most common issue we see is that a contractor is drawn into a claim that they don’t believe they are responsible for. This is where having proper written agreements and the right insurance coverage comes in handy. The best coverage aligns with your contracts and keeps you from having to pay out of pocket when a handshake won’t do. Give us a call and we will help to get you covered beyond the handshake.
