Protect your lawn mowing business with the right insurance
Lawn mowing might be thought of as a low risk occupation, but you know better than anyone the risks you face as a result of working outside with electrical equipment such as trimmers, chainsaws and lawnmowers, hazardous chemicals such as weed killer and exposure to the elements.
You’ll know that your experience and the quality of your work doesn’t protect your business against accidents like rocks flicking up and breaking a customers window, injury and unexpected events such as theft, fire or storms.
Regardless of whether you're a sole trader or contractor, getting the right insurance is key to helping with peace of mind and financial security against accidents – no matter how big or small. Plus if you buy online you can save up to $100.
