A business owners policy is a special type of policy that packages the majority of insurance coverages a typical business would need. This can include property insurance, business interruption insurance, vehicle coverage, and liability insurance. Some BOP policies can be customized for the specific type of business and BOP policies will often save your business money over purchasing the separate insurance coverages individually.
2. Commercial Auto Insurance
If vehicles are used in any way in your business or the business owns vehicles you'll most likely need commercial auto insurance. The situations where it's necessary can vary though, so it's a good idea to discuss your specific business usage with a qualified insurance agent who can help you determine whether a commercial or personal auto policy is best for you.
3. Property Insurance
If your business owns any physical assets like computers, inventory, tools, equipment, or office furniture you should consider purchasing insurance to protect you from an unfortunate situation like a fire, theft, vandalism or something else that would require you to replace those items. If you own the building your business is in you'll need it.
