What is Installation and Tool Floater Insurance?

Installation Floater insurance covers materials or items that have not yet been installed (such as cabinets, worktops, sinks, and so on) in the case of loss, damage, or theft—regardless of whether they reached the project's site or were in transit.

The tool floater insurance policy covers the loss or theft of tools you use for work, up to $1000 per item. It's important to note that for insurance purposes, "tools" are different from "equipment." Tools are small handheld items like hammers and screwdrivers, while equipment includes larger pieces like vehicles or generators. However, this limit of $1000 per item does not apply across the board - some policies cover more than that amount.

These two types of floater insurance policies oftentimes go hand-in-hand and are essential for contractors and those working in similar or related professions.
