How to Obtain a Buisness Liability Insurance Quote

Obtaining a business liability insurance quote can be one of the smartest things you could do to protect the assets of your business. All too often business owners neglect the need for adequate insurance coverage. Protecting everything you worked for is often the foremost thought in many business owners mind, leaving it to chance should not be on your agenda. You may be surprised to learn that adequate, expansive coverage for your business is not only readily at hand, but is also well within the budgets of most small business owners. Some of this coverage can be accessed directly while some coverage may need to be run through a licensed insurance broker or agent. Regardless of your option, not having the adequate coverage for your business can be a thorn in your side for years to come.

The most popular type of business liability quote is called a Business Owners Policy (or BOP). A business owners liability policy bundles together multiple lines of coverage all under the guise of one “package” policy. Typically these policies will include general liability insurance, which provides coverage to generic slips, trips and falls for those who are entering your premises. A BOP will also include property coverage for the liability related to the physical structure you occupy. In addition to general liability and property coverage a BOP can also include coverage for automobile liability, employers liability and employee benefits liability. These policies can usually be obtained through an on line application or quick meeting with your local insurance broker or agent.

Should the scope of your business be a little more complicated, for instance, a medical office, architect or engineer, or complex manufacturing plant the scope of your liabilities may exceed the coverage provided by a standard Business Owners Policy. In this type of situation you will need to contract the services of a licensed insurance broker or agent. These agents, will on your behalf, take your vital insurance information and use this to access various insurance markets. They will in turn “bid” on a proposal for all your insurance needs. You as the consumer will have the ability to pick and choose which company offer the most comprehensive coverage and most forward accordingly. In both situations your end line goal is to provide your business with a total coverage program.
