Once you’ve made the decision to have your lawn mowing done by a lawn care professional you will want to make sure that they have insurance.
Insurance is there to protect both you as the homeowner and the person or company taking care of your lawn care.
Examples for insurance:
- Windows are typically in an area where they can be hit with projectiles such as rocks or small sticks. Especially basement windows at ground level. Should one of the windows get broken insurance would cover it.
- Neighbors property is another area that people don’t think about when they hire a lawn care professional. What would happen if their fence, windows or other objects in their yard were damaged by the company that you hired? Guess who your neighbor will want to pay for the damages?
