Commercial Insurance Tips for New Business Owners

Posted by Alannah McEwan

Nov 7, 2016 11:53:13 AM


When looking for business insurance coverage, many new business owners find themselves overwhelmed. There is no one size fits all when it comes to business insurance as every business is unique. Talking to a professional broker that specializes in commercial insurance can help you better understand your options and find a package that best fits your business.

Business Insurance  

There are many different factors to consider to be sure that you are getting the right coverage. Commercial insurance is needed to protect against the risks of owning and operating a business. The right insurance will ensure that your business is fully covered should anything happen.

Know What You Need

There are many different types of business insurance, some which are compulsory and some which are recommended. Before you shop for a plan, it's important to consider the specific needs of your business. The best deal is one that fully protects your business at a fair price.

Some business owners who work out of their home might think that they don’t need business insurance. That isn’t the case, even home businesses need commercial insurance. Homeowner’s insurance does not protect against the risks associated with owning a business.

Understand Types of Insurance

Find out what insurance you are legally required to have as an owner and employer and explore the various additional types of insurance. The types of coverage that you may need include:

  • Property
  • Vehicle
  • General liability
  • Professional liability
  • Workers’ compensation
  • Equipment breakdown
  • Directors and officers

Monitor and Review Your Policy as You Grow

As your business grows, it might outgrow your insurance policy. As your company grows, so do your needs and potential liabilities. 

If your business goes through a major change in the middle of coverage, be sure to discuss it with your insurance broker as soon as possible.

Most insurance policies need to be renewed annually. Before you sign on for another year of coverage review your policy for any changes in your business or in the provider's terms of service.
