Business Insurance is available for nearly all sizes and types of businesses.
Business owners need insurance for a variety of reasons. The most common are general liability and property coverage.
General liability may cover such items as Bodily Injury to others, property damage to others, medical and completed operations.
But what does all this mean? These terms have special meanings and thus the need to consult with professionals.
What really needs to happen for many is to have your businesses risk evaluated. This is done through an insurance review fact finder with your broker or agent.
Please understand that General Liability and Property coverage may not be all that you want or need!
For corporations, it may be the need for Directors and Officers coverage.
A business may also need employee benefits such as group health, group life and even a pension program.
Depending on the type of insurance business, income protection may be necessary or desired. This particular type of coverage is referred to an “business interruption” coverage.
Business policies often come with a “package” of coverage but not always.
Many business owner policies also allow for coverages to be added by endorsement. (A written change request)
Other insurance types that may be need are workers compensation, business auto and others depending on your type of business.
So, after reading this do you feel comfortable buying your business insurance through an online rating engine?
Make the wise choice and have peace of mind. Never discount the experienced and professional agent or broker.
