Should you have commercial insurance at the start of a new business?

The question of whether to invest in commercial insurance with E.S.T.I.R. Inc. right at the start of founding your Newark, NJ business depends on a number of factors. Ultimately it comes down to risk.

This is to say that not all businesses will require insurance right at the start. A startup in your garage will grow over time, and it may require a policy before you knwo it, but it probably does not when you are just working on a laptop on your own.

On the other hand, just about any service industry will require commercial insurance right up front. If you’re running a restaurant, a retail store, anything with a physical location where customers or clients will be visiting you, you’re at least going to need commercial general liability alongside some other coverage policies depending on the nature of your business.

Your business might not involve any direct contact with customers at all, but it may be necessary to seek a policy through E.S.T.I.R. Inc. simply because of the scale of the business. If this isn’t a simple startup, but rather, a team of investors entrusting you to, for instance, flip real estate or found a media company, then you need to consider how you’re going to protect your investors’ from damages and liability, and commercial insurance can help in this regard.

Starting a new business in Newark, NJ comes with a number of challenges, and one of them is assessing risk. If you’re not sure what your risks are, speak with other professionals in your field, and always err on the side of caution.
