Business owners work hard to ensure that their company grows and becomes successful. It is important to note that each business is unique and requires a custom insurance package tailored to their business. By looking at your core operations, we can determine where to maximize coverage at an affordable rate. We want to ensure you are fully protected in each facet of your business.
Businesses can be classified as:
– Sole Proprietorship
That’s where having an insurance policy can help protect both your physical assets and safeguard future revenue. For many entrepreneurs, finding the right type of business insurance can be a daunting task. But don’t worry, we’re here to help.
The first step is to identify what type of coverage you need. Businesses come in all shapes and sizes. So the type of policy you choose will be largely dependent on the specific industry you are in and the risks associated with it. A list of operational functions is useful so we can pinpoint what to insure and maximize coverage for those areas. As you consider the different types of protection available, keep in mind each policy is uniquely tailored to meet your specific needs.
Each industry has its own set of policies and coverages. Not all businesses will need the same coverage. Some will need their assets protected while others will need employees covered under a general liability policy. Operations such as manufacturing may require product liability and/or professional services may need errors and omission coverage. Our job is to understand your company’s various exposures and help select affordable plans that limits risks much as possible.
Common Insurance Policies
– Property Insurance – Protects your physical assets from damage due to fire, windstorm, theft and other perils.
– Liability Insurance – Offers protection from bodily injury or property damage that may occur during business operations. It also includes coverage for personal injuries that may result from an auto accident or a slip and fall on the business premises.
– Product Liability Insurance – Protects businesses involved in the sale or use of products against claims arising out of defects in their products.
– Professional Liability Insurance – Protects you against claims of negligence by others for providing the services you offer your clients.
– Cyber Liability Insurance – Protects your business from loss of data and revenue due to a cyber-attack or other electronic security breach.
– Business Auto Insurance – Provides liability coverage for vehicles used to conduct business along with physical damage coverage for your company’s vehicle fleet.
Once you have a good idea of the types of coverage needed, it’s time to start shopping for a policy. Don’t be afraid to ask for quotes from multiple insurers – you may be surprised at how much rates can vary.
When comparing policies, make sure to read the fine print and ask questions about anything that is unclear. You’ll also want to find an insurer who is knowledgeable about and understands the specific risks associated with your industry.
Finally, don’t wait until something bad happens to get insurance. It’s always better to be safe than and prepared. Having a policy in place can give you peace of mind knowing that you’re protected in case the unexpected occurs.
