Business Property Insurance can protect your financial interest in your business, store, office, factory, and/or other locations. Business Property insurance will make certain your damaged building and/or property is repaired or rebuilt quickly so you avoid losing income and preserve both the equity and your future. The loss of any property or inventory you own or create for sale affects your bottom line. If you encounter damage to any of these items, Business Property insurance can help you replace everything from computers and inventory to equipment and tools.
Loss of Business Income Insurance provides coverage to keep your business operating until you are open and goods and services are being produced again. This insurance not only replaces lost business income while the office and its contents are being rebuilt and replaced, but it can also cover the operating and payroll expenses necessary to keep you and your business “on your feet” after a loss.
Your liability insurance policy may help protect your livelihood from lawsuits arising from your business. The policy would cover you to a certain limit, but is it enough?

In addition to your business property insurance and liability insurance needs, you may also need commercial auto, workers compensation, health, life, retirement plans and professional/specialty products insurance.
