Happy New Year! Many pet sitting business owners striving to ensure 2020 is the best year yet. However, you may run into some obstacles. During this time of year, it’s common for people to start booking vacations away from home and looking forward to their next adventure. While it’s not possible for furry pets to always tag along, that’s where pet sitters like you can come in and care for those who are staying home. Many of your pet sitting appointments may go according to plan and there are no incidents. However, it only takes one unfortunate accident to wreck your business and pet sitting insurance can help out in a variety of ways.

Let’s get to it!

Insurance Can Help With Gaining Clients

Clients don’t want to leave their fur babies with just any pet sitter. They want to know they are working with a pet sitter who is professional and has experience caring for pets. With the help of pet sitting insurance from PCI, you can use your coverage as a marketing tactic and stand out from the competition. We offer an insurance badge that can be attached to your personal website immediately after purchase and can alert potential clients that you have gone the extra mile to protect your business. Other ways to use coverage to your advantage is by featuring that you’re insured via your business cards and social media accounts.

Insurance Can Give Clients Peace Of Mind

Comparing Employee Dishonesty Coverage & Bonding

PCI’s employee dishonesty coverage is similar to a bond, but there may be some key differences to consider.

Employee dishonesty coverage:

  • Can be purchased in the same transaction
  • Doesn’t run credit checks
  • Provides $10,000 per occurrence and $25,000 aggregate coverage

Bonds may differ from our dishonesty coverage by:

  • Checking your credit during the application process
  • Having a “Conviction Claus;” Often bonds won’t pay on claims unless there is a conviction
  • Many require you to reimbursement the bonding company after a claim is paid
