Over our more than 50 years in business, the team at Hitchings Insurance Agency has refined and developed an insurance program for swimming pool contractors.  Whether you are constructing commercial, recreational, infinity, or lap pools in a variety of materials from fiberglass to concrete, we have developed an insurance plan around your business! We know that not all swimming pool contractors are the same. Some do the excavation, while others do the hardscape installation. Additionally, there are some doing the commercial hauling of the pool and materials from the factory to the jobsites. We understand each business is unique.  We have a coverage solution for almost any combination of risks you can throw at us for swimming pool contractors, repairs, installers, and value-added retailers.

We love the swimming pool industry! What could be better than getting to turn your customers’ backyards and sites from a dream into a reality?  The smiles and memories you create are priceless, but they do carry a risk and an exposure that you need to consider covering with a comprehensive insurance plan. We offer swimming pool contractor insurance plans that cover all sorts of risks and help protect your bottom line.  We can provide a cleaner package that is extremely competitive in the marketplace. We will offer increased coverages and complex endorsements when available.
