InsuredBusinesses.com is a directory that verifies liability insurance of businesses (collectively, “Businesses”) to allow users (“You,” “Yourself,” or “Your,” if possessive) the opportunity to further protect themselves against possible financial loss that is more likely when using or hiring uninsured companies.
In addition, InsuredBusinesses.com allows Businesses to display their verification of insurance for free, allowing Businesses to build their reputation as responsible and trustworthy, while gaining a competitive edge over competition who have not verified their insurance through InsuredBusinesses.com.
At InsuredBusinesses.com we aspire to display insured and responsible businesses all of us trust with our most valued possessions. We do that by requesting a Certificate of Liability Insurance (“Certificates”) from Businesses so that we can verify liability insurance coverage for Businesses before giving them an “Insurance Verified” status on our website.
Certificates of Businesses are sent to us by insurance agencies (or insurance companies) that give us a snapshot view of a businesses’ in-force insurance policies at the time of the certificate request. While this is a valuable document that generally guarantees liability insurance at the time of issuance, certificates do not give us specific policy coverage details or coverage promises. We are also not notified if a policy(s) is canceled at some point after InsuredBusinesses.com receives the certificates.
For many reasons including the limited amount of information Certificates of Insurance provide and because policy(s) can be canceled at any time by Businesses, it is very important for each person to ask for proof of coverage from Businesses. It is also recommended that individual policies should be examined to be certain of what is or is not covered. In no case should the content of our website be construed as an express or implied guarantee of current or future coverage.
InsuredBusinesses.com Business Profiles are provided solely to assist you in exercising your own best judgment. Information in this Profile is not guaranteed as to accuracy. Each business will show a specific status on our website. The following are the five we use and an explanation of what they mean.
