They call you a green thumb, but in reality, your hands are dirtier than most. The gardens you maintain, lawns you mow, hedges you trim and weeds you pull make things look a million bucks when the day’s done. But what happens when something goes wrong? It might be a small accident, or something much more serious, but the last thing you want is for it to cost you a million bucks.
Insurance for gardeners is extremely important. You work in a variety of locations, for a range of people, at various times of day, in changing weather, and on different terrain. All of these uncertain factors mean you have to be knowledgeable and aware of your surroundings. This is where things can go wrong; you can’t predict everything, and certainly not the actions of other people.
Public and Products Liability is a type of gardeners insurance that you shouldn’t trade without. It might be a small problem this time — a stray rock from the brush cutter hits a car or smashes a window — but what if next time it catches someone in the eye, or worse?
This might seem like an extreme scenario, but these things do happen, and you can’t stop someone from suing you for damages if they believe you’ve caused them injury, or damaged their property. The last thing you want at the end of a long day is to put the John Deere away, check the mail, and find a ‘Dear John’ from an angry claimant’s solicitor.
Public and Products Liability Insurance protects you in these instances, and that’s why no gardener should trade without it.
