Small Business Insurance Made Easy

Small business owners have a lot better things to do with their time than to spend it shopping for business insurance and trying to wade through all the coverage options, features and benefits. Many owners and managers turn to the internet to avoid confusing sales tactics and long face-to-face meetings with agents, as well as to find the most affordable policy for their business.

We’ve worked hard to help our insurance partners develop exclusive small business insurance programs for many common types of businesses. A Business Owners Policy, or BOP, helps many business owners purchase a pre-packaged business insurance policy that already includes the additional business coverages common to a specific type of business.

A General Liability Shop BOP combines several lines of liability coverage under a single policy

A Business Owners Policy Combines Several Lines of Coverage Under a Single Policy:

✓ General Liability Insurance for Third-Party Liability
✓ Property Insurance for Buildings and Personal
✓ Business Interruption and Extra Expense Coverage
✓ Additional Coverages for EPLI, Data Breach and More

What Does Liability Insurance Cover?

Business liability insurance includes a broad range of insurance products designed to insure against specific types of claims and losses. For example, a general liability policy covers different risks than professional liability (E&O) or auto liability coverage.

Business Liability Insurance Policies Often Cover:
  • Auto Liability
  • Hired and Non-Owned Auto
  • Completed Operations
  • Liquor Liability
  • Data Breach
  • Medical Payments
  • Employee Benefits
  • Premises Liability
  • Employee Theft
  • Products Liability
  • Employers Liability
  • Professional Liability
  • Employment Practices Liability
  • Property Damage
  • Fire Liability
  • Tools & Equipment
  • Instant Online Insurance Quotes vs. Shopping with a Commercial Insurance Agent

    Technology is great when it works well, but that’s not always the case when it comes to getting business insurance quotes. The upside to getting an instant business quote is that you don’t have to talk with anyone and you might be able to get coverage in less than an hour or so. The downside is you might pay more for your business liability insurance.

    There are two primary reasons a business owner may be better off having a real agent to shop their business liability coverage:

    1) Online rating systems are proprietary, so it’s nearly impossible to get quotes from more than one or two carriers when you use an instant online rater. And some insurance companies don’t utilize online technology at all, which means you can’t even get an instant insurance quote from them.

    2) Online quotes for business insurance don’t typically include policy credits and underwriting discounts available from the carrier. In order to get the very best rates on coverage, an agent generally has to ask for additional credits, and they have to justify those discounts.
