The best way I know of to find out is to simply ask the company for a certificate of insurance. Once in hand simply call up and verufy that the policy is current.

I have been asked for my certificate about a dozen times in the last 6 years - mainly from commercial customers but I have never had any problem or issue with emailing it over.

I wish more people would ask to see the certificates. It is better for the industry to have contractors be icensed.

If your contractor gives you an issue -- find another contractor.

Additionally, you ought to be asking for certificates of insurance from all service businesses - not only lawn and garden ones. It's one of the best ways to weed out the lowballers who give you a good price, but no follow through.

If someone is going to be coming to your home or place of business to perform a service, ask for a copy of their C of I before deciding on which business to use.

Certificates of liability insurance e-mailed or faxed directly to you (standard procedure); and on the back of the invoice sheet you sign off on or give oral concent to.
