Elevator Insurance

The elevator industry can be hazardous and there are only a small number of agencies that specialize in writing policies for elevator contractors, inspectors, manufacturers, service and repair.  The proper insurance coverage is essential for any business working with elevators to protect itself from liability claims. Because it is a specialized industry, it is important to select a provider that truly understands the nature of the business.
