Bricks and Mortar: Protecting Your Small Business with Comprehensive Insurance

Bricks and Mortar: Protecting Your Small Business with Comprehensive Insurance

Small to medium-sized businesses often operate under the misconception that commercial insurance isn’t essential if they don’t own the building they operate from. They might believe their landlord’s insurance covers everything, including building damage and liability, leaving them worry-free. However, this assumption is far from accurate.

Understanding Landlord Insurance Limitations:

While your landlord may be trustworthy, their insurance prioritizes their own interests and building structure. It likely excludes your inventory, equipment, and crucial liability coverage. In fact, many retail lease agreements hold tenants responsible for damages like broken windows. This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to potential risks.

Liability Coverage: Protecting Your Assets:

Imagine a customer slipping and falling in your store or office. Even if your landlord has liability coverage, you can still be held responsible for their injuries and subsequent legal costs. This risk increases if your business manufactures or sells products that cause customer injuries. Even delivery personnel injured on your premises can hold you liable.

Beyond Physical Presence: Employee and Vehicle Risks:

Your employees can pose liability risks when conducting business-related activities. If they use personal vehicles for business errands or deliveries, you’re potentially liable for any accidents they may cause.

Losses Beyond the Building:

Imagine a fire or natural disaster destroys your entire inventory, office equipment, and computers. How would you recover from such a loss? Business insurance protects you against theft, vandalism, fires, and other unforeseen calamities. It even helps you recover from lost income during business interruptions.

Tailoring Coverage to Your Specific Needs:

Protecting your business requires more than just building insurance. You need to consider the unique risks your business faces. Our independent insurance agents are here to help. We’ll conduct a comprehensive assessment, understand your specific needs, and construct a customized business coverage plan. This personalized approach ensures you have the protection and peace of mind you deserve.
