Frequently asked questions about painting contractor insurance

No, painters insurance is not mandatory in Ontario. But, spills and overspray can happen, and cleanup can be costly. When trying to navigate a space filled with ladders, paint trays and drop cloths, injuries can also happen. It’s a good idea to have a painters insurance policy, to protect your business from liability, and to protect your shop, trucks, and other assets. And, it’s more affordable than you might think.

It’s pretty common for painters to use their personal vehicle to transport paint and tools back and forth to job sites. If you use your personal vehicle to get yourself to work, your personal auto insurance will not cover you if you are involved in an accident or your vehicle is damaged while on the job. We highly recommend getting a commercial auto insurance policy. Learn more about commercial auto insurance.
