Avoid unnecessary damages
Both you and the insurance company are a business. In the event you need to be compensated, it must be
proved to the insurance company that an accident has occurred. Faking incidents to receive compensation
from insurance companies is fraudulent and illegal. Apart from disappointments for lack of conviction,
causing careless damages to your clients' properties can hurt your business reputation. You will receive
negative feedback and word of mouth passes faster than any other form of advertisement.
Accidents are going to happen, it's the nature of this type of business. A customer's window might be
broken, or someone may get a minor injury while working onsite. Lawn care workers use large, often
dangerous equipment to complete services. Every property is different. Make sure you hire responsible
workers and know how to operate/ use your equipment. Be prepared to handle issues honestly and quickly
when they arise. For example, if one of your workers is stung by bees on a property, do you know how to
handle this? Do they have to use their personal insurance or will you cover them? Customers can often be
forgiving of minor accidents, as long as they are handled well.
