Everything you want to know about Insurance

Surveyors and mappers are almost always required to have insurance due to the risk of injury while on site and damage to other people’s property. You might need insurance to:

  • Start surveying and mapping properties. Clients and local governments might ask you to have active insurance — usually general liability or workers’ compensation.
  • Hire employees. Most states require workers’ compensation.
  • Repair or replace property you own or rent. Protect your inventory, equipment and even the building that you lease or own.

Frequently asked questions about business insurance

Here are some of the most common questions we get about land surveyor insurance. If you don’t find the answers you need here, our licensed, U.S.-based insurance advisors are standing by to help via online chat or phone.

How does business insurance protect land surveyors and mappers?

Our land surveying and mapping insurance packages are designed to protect your business from a variety of risks and help you save money to grow your business. You’ll be protected from financial losses related to:

Damage to someone’s property

You accidentally damage a fence when surveying a construction site. The general liability coverage in your insurance package would help pay for a replacement.

Accidents that hurt someone

A client falls on a wet tile floor in your office and hurts their shoulder. Your general liability coverage would also come into play here by helping to pay for medical costs and legal fees.

Professional mistakes 

You accidentally leave a key page out of your report for a homeowner which skews their asking price. Professional liability coverage (also known as building surveyor professional indemnity insurance or land surveyors liability insurance) helps you defend yourself if you’re accused of making a mistake that causes someone to lose money. 

Workplace injuries 

When walking up a steep incline, you slip and sprain your ankle. Workers’ compensation coverage can help cover medical bills and lost wages — not to mention it’s usually required by law if you have employees. 

Damage to your own property

A tree branch falls and breaks one of your office windows during a storm. Commercial property insurance can help with replacement or repair costs if your owned or leased property is damaged due to a covered event, such as a burst water pipe, fire, tornado or vandalism.
