Commercial insurance doesn’t just mean that you’re keeping an eye out for potential property disasters, it’s also about caring for your employees and customers as well. If you don’t have enough coverage, it can cripple your business with excess costs and legal matters. Use these 5 tips before you decide on a policy.
1. Consider Your Area
Manassas gets its fair share of rain but even if it didn’t, floods can still happen practically anywhere. Water, windstorms, and earthquakes can cause major damage, but they’re not generally covered under normal policies.
2. Looking Ahead
Right now you may not see very many threats to your business, but you need to keep in mind what might happen in the future. Some ‘customers’ or even employees are only there to catch you on a technicality so they can sue you. Commercial insurance gives you a means to fight off their accusations.
3. When You Need Repairs
A large insurance company may not be very organized when it comes to getting a claim covered. Do you really need to be transferred three times when your business needs to be addressed ASAP?
4. Mobility and You
Mobile equipment is often not on your property, which means you need an insurance policy that will extend for all of your tools — not just what’s located on your grounds or official office.
5. Getting a Partner
A good insurance company can explain the terms of your commercial insurance to you in a way that makes sense, and even give you specific tips based on your business so you’re better protected.
