I am considering starting up a IR inspection business and wonder where one might get insurance. Do contractors carry both general liability AND professional.

You need two types of insurance as a minimum.
The first and most important is PI (Professional Indemnity)between half and a mil is good dependent on the work you are aiming at. Petro chemical needs to be considerably higher. The second is PL (Public Liability)all people should have this just in case you knock over the cherished ming vase in a house or kill the CEO's pet fish by accident. Oh and don't forget to insure your camera. All this does not come cheap but given the appetite for litigation in business it pays. Legal costs should be included. I all policies as a matter of course. Hope this helps. teh Verifier
