Business Property Insurance

If you are like most business owners, it would be difficult to start over if something like a fire or a major theft happened to your business. That is why having a reliable commercial property insurance is important.

If your business relies on a single car or a large fleet of vehicles, you should make sure that your automobiles are fully insured. By doing so, you can be sure that your business is protected against liability if an accident occurs. At the very least, you should insure against third party injury. A comprehensive insurance will cover vehicles in an accident as well.
Workers’ compensation requirements and laws and vary by state. Generally, any business that has employees must have workers’ compensation insurance coverage. The insurance helps cover lost wages and medical care for an employee who was hurt at work.

A major claim can threaten the very existence of your business. Additionally, a serious claim has the potential to put your own personal assets at risk.

Business Owner Policy
Commonly called “BOP,” business owner policy contains many of the insurance coverages required by most small businesses. While the policies are not standard, there are certain common elements among BOP packages.
A basic BOP covers your building and its contents, including liability insurance protection for your company. This protection generally includes the operation of your business at its established location and the liability from your products and completed operations. Some policies may also offer extra expense protection after an insured loss.
Keep in mind that a BOP does not contain all of the coverages needed by a small business. Notably, it does not provide professional liability, workers’ compensation, or business vehicle coverage.
This policy is meant to indemnify you if there is any loss or damage to your cargo. Cargo insurance covers the goods while they are being transported by sea, air, or land. Items that can be covered by cargo insurance include parcel post and courier service packages.

The requirements for a business automobile insurance policy are not only determined by registrations. Other requirements include ownership by a corporation, usage in hauling goods for hire, and the gross weight of the vehicle.
