Do I Need a Business Owners Policy?

As a business owner, it’s important to evaluate whether a Business Owners Policy (BOP) is the right choice for your business by speaking with one of our agents. A BOP is a comprehensive insurance package that can provide liability and property coverage.

You should consider a BOP if your business:

  • Owns or rents commercial property
  • Has employees or independent contractors
  • Has a physical location where customers visit or goods are stored
  • Has valuable assets like equipment or inventory
  • Is exposed to risks like accidents, natural disasters, or theft

Additionally, even though a BOP is comprehensive, it’s important to evaluate your specific needs and to consider additional coverage options that may be needed. For example, if you’re running an online business, a BOP may not be suitable, but a cyber insurance can be needed.

It’s crucial to speak with an insurance agent to evaluate your specific insurance needs and determine the best coverage options for your business. By doing so, you can make an informed decision and ensure that your business is protected against potential liabilities and property damage.

Who needs it?

A Business Owners Policy (BOP) is typically considered for small to medium-sized businesses and can be helpful for a wide range of businesses. Here are some examples of types of industries that may need a BOP:

  • Retail businesses: This includes businesses that sell products or services to the general public, such as clothing stores, grocery stores, and restaurants.
  • Service businesses: This includes businesses that provide services to customers, such as hair salons, auto repair shops, and consulting firms.
  • Professional services businesses: This includes businesses that provide specialized services, such as accounting firms, law firms, and engineering firms.
  • Manufacturing businesses: This includes businesses that produce goods, such as textiles, electronics, and food products.
  • Construction businesses: This includes businesses that provide construction, remodeling, and repair services, such as general contractors, electricians, and plumbers, etc.
  • Technology businesses: This includes businesses that provide software, IT, and other technology-related services
  • Non-Profit organizations: This includes charitable organizations and other non-profit entities

It’s important to note that a BOP may not be suitable for every business, so it’s recommended to discuss your specific insurance needs with one of our professional agents to determine whether a BOP is right for you and your business.

It’s always good to have insurance in case of accidents, even if it isn’t required contractually.

How much does it cost?

The cost of a Business Owners Policy (BOP) can differ depending on several factors, such as the type of business, the location of the business, and the amount of coverage needed. It’s difficult to provide an estimate of the total cost of a BOP without more information about your business and its insurance needs. However, here are some of the factors we consider when determining the total cost of a Business Owners Policy (BOP):

  • The type of business: Different types of businesses will have different insurance needs and risks. For example, a retail store will have different insurance needs than a construction company.
  • The location of the business: The location of a business may affect the insurance costs because certain areas may have higher risks of certain types of losses, such as natural disasters or crime.
  • The amount of coverage needed: The more coverage a business needs, the higher the cost of the BOP will be. For example, a business that needs coverage for multiple locations or expensive equipment will have a higher BOP cost than a business that only needs coverage for one location and minimal equipment.
  • The business history and credit score: A business’s history and credit score can affect the cost of the BOP, as businesses that have a history of claims or poor credit may be considered higher-risk and therefore have higher insurance costs.
  • The deductible: The deductible is the amount that the policyholder will pay before the insurance coverage kicks in. A higher deductible will result in lower premium cost.

On average, a BOP can cost anywhere from a few hundred dollars to several thousand dollars per year, depending on the factors mentioned above. It’s also worth noting that many we may offer discounts for multiple types of coverage and for safety measures that a business have.

Basic Coverages

  • General Liability (GL): often referred to as business liability insurance, is coverage that can protect you from a variety of claims including bodily injury, property damage, personal injury and others that can arise from your business operations. Typically needed before a contractor can begin work on a job
  • Commercial Auto: Commercial auto insurance is liability and physical damage protection for vehicles, such as cars, trucks and vans, that are used for business. Commercial vehicles require a separate policy because they’re typically exposed to more risk than personal vehicles. You have the choice to cover attached equipment such as ladder racks and permanently attached tool boxes. Individual tools and materials usually aren’t covered under this policy.

Other coverages contractors might need

  • Business Owners Policy (BOP): Packages contractors liability and coverage for personal property and commercial buildings into one policy.
  • Workers’ Compensation: Protects if your employees become ill or injured while at work.
