Commercial Property Insurance
It’s impossible to predict every disaster. Businesses in every industry need commercial property insurance to safeguard their financial future. Commercial property insurance provides peace of mind, protecting your physical assets from whatever comes their way. Whether you’re operating from your own storefront or from a home office, there’s a policy to suit your needs.
What does commercial property insurance cover?
Imagine you operate a restaurant that is destroyed in a fire. Your insurance policy would cover the building, computers, furniture, inventory, customer possessions, documents, landscaping and all cooking appliances. Although that is not an exhaustive list, it serves to illustrate the extremely comprehensive nature of commercial property insurance. Commercial property insurance covers all the physical assets of your business. This can encompass everything from the building you operate from to outdoor signage.
Commercial property insurance provides protection from the worst-case scenario: a total loss.
It’s important to be realistic about the replacement value of your physical assets. Typically, small businesses are the most likely to forgo insurance. Unfortunately, they are also the most likely to suffer a complete loss without the ability to pay for repairs. In this case, you may find yourself liable for both your property and property a customer has left in your control or custody. If you cannot afford to rebuild your business with money out of pocket, a low-cost policy could provide peace of mind.
