If you’re a business owner, chances are you’ve been thinking about what kind of insurance you need. Many kinds of business owners’ policy coverages exist to address the multifarious kinds of risk you and your company face. While there are many different kinds available to you on the market, knowing a little bit about your options will help you make an informed decision. And of course, an experienced agent will guide you towards making the best decision for your enterprise.
There’s a couple of different types of comprehensive packages from which you can choose. The first is simple known as a business owner policy (BOP). Each one is designed for your unique industry, and most versions come with a property component that covers your buildings, their contents and the personal property of anyone on your premises. Additionally, some versions include business interruption coverage for times when you must shut down. A commercial package policy is even more comprehensive than a BOP, often bundling other kinds of policies with it such as business auto, business interruption, inland marine, crime and other specifics you’ll need to deal with your firm’s risk.
Choosing from among your business owners’ policy coverages might seem daunting. However, if you approach the process with a knowledge of what you need to protect and the risks you must address, it’s easier for an agent to suggest appropriate products. Whether it’s a standard BOP or a commercial package policy, knowing your needs will help you select the best coverage.
