As a Handyman, you spend too much time fixing things for others to worry about fixing your business insurance.
Tomins realized most business insurance is confusing, time-consuming and boring–so we decided to do something about it.
Rather than take the cookie-cutter approach used by many firms, we take the time to understand the unique needs of each business we serve. Powered by Higginbotham, our coverage is designed with your business in mind, offering you all of the coverages you need and none that you don’t.
Isn’t it time you had an insurance partner that worked as hard as you do?

Life as a handyman is full of risks.
From the liabilities of working on other people’s property to the unexpected twists and turns that each day brings, you deserve the peace of mind of knowing you’re covered.
From coverages specifically designed with a handyman in mind to the more general protections designed for all contractors, handyman insurance is a critical part of succeeding in today’s fast-paced business world.
Regardless of the details of your specific operation, there are a number of coverages you should probably be carrying as a business owner.
Typically bundled into a Business Owner’s Policy (BOP) (LINK), these essential coverages include:
General Liability Insurance
General liability (GL) insurance can help cover your legal liability for damages or injuries sustained by others as a result of your business operation. GL coverage can help you cover expenses including, but not limited to, lawsuits, settlements, legal fees, court costs and more.
Commercial Property Insurance
If you own or rent a shop or office, Commercial Property Insurance can help protect it. Commercial Property Insurance can help pay to replace your business’s physical property, building or buildings, and the assets you have in those buildings in the aftermath of a natural disaster.
Business Income Insurance
Also known as business interruption insurance, when added to a Commerical Property Policy, business income insurance can reimburse you for lost income during the recovery phase of another covered claim that interrupts your business.
As a self-employed handyman, you should carry the same BOP (Business Owners Policy) we recommend for all small businesses. A BOP is designed to protect your business’s buildings, property, and other business assets. It also protects you from legal liabilities created by your business operations.
A typical BOP for a handyman includes three important coverages:
At Tomins, we live by the importance of understanding each business we serve.
Depending on the specifics of a business’ operation, some other coverages we might offer a handyman include:
This coverage helps pays for repairs to scheduled equipment when it stops working or is damaged.
If you ever find yourself transporting the property of others, you should consider carrying Property in Transit coverage. Also known as Inland Marine Coverage, this coverage can help a business with the cost repairing or replacing other people’s property that was damaged in transit.
If you have employees, EPLI is an important coverage to carry. This coverage can help pay for lawsuits filed for improper hiring, discrimination, slander, sexual harassment and more.
Umbrella insurance can help protect a Handyman business beyond the claim limits of their base policy.
Workers compensation insurance is another important coverage to consider if you have employees. This coverage can help with the costs of an employee injury, including medical expenses, lost wages and legal fees/settlement costs.
That’s why our Handyman Insurance policies include all the coverage you need an none that you don’t.
Just like every job you bid has a price based on the scope of work, every policy we design is priced based on the unique needs of the business it’s designed for.
At Tomins, we are committed to going the extra mile to make sure every customer we serve is getting the right coverage at the right price.
