It is an important factor and we only use insurers with A-ratings. It measures an insurer's financial situation and allows you to predict their ability to meet on-going policy obligations. Also there are a number of main contractors that will not sub contract works to any companies not insured with an insurer with a minimum of an A- financial rating (as determined by such companies as; Standard & Poor's, A M Best, Moody's or Fitch Ratings) By not having a financially secure insurance policy in place you could potentially be restricting your business and the contracts you can take on.
