Small Business Insurance
You’ve put everything into your small business – we get that.
You want an insurance policy that’s flexible, meets your needs, and includes a number of extras for added peace of mind. That’s why we’ve put together a dedicated insurance package for small businesses to provide you with the coverage you need to help protect all the things you’ve worked so hard to build.
Insurance that makes sense for small businesses
Whether your business specializes in contracting, manufacturing, wholesale or consulting work, these core coverages will help support your long-term success.
Are you in a position to handle a lawsuit? Any incident that causes injury to a customer could lead to an expensive legal battle. Commercial general liability (CGL) insurance can help cover the legal costs associated with incidents causing bodily injury or property damage to a third party.
Whether you work out of your home, use a leased space, or own a commercial building, you have a range of assets that could be vulnerable to damage or loss. Commercial property insurance provides protection for your whole workplace – the building, its contents, and the elements surrounding the space.
Software, online tools, and cloud computing put your business at risk for cybercrime. If you do experience a cyber attack, cyber coverage can help with expenses involving data recovery, extortion, and business interruption. We also offer liability coverage for network security & privacy incidents, as well as internet media coverage.
Sometimes a small mistake can lead to a big problem for a customer, and you could be on the hook for the loss. Whether you provide goods or services, Errors and Omissions (E&O) coverage can help cover the costs of lawsuits that come from errors or omissions in your work or your products.
Pollution liability insurance is a coverage that protects businesses against third-party claims and first-party exposures resulting from pollution conditions caused by covered operations performed by or on behalf of a business. These claims could be for bodily injury, property damage, or environmental damage.
When it comes to insurance coverage, we go the extra mile.
Flexibility, experience, and confidence – that’s what you need to protect your business, and that’s where we can help.
Our small business package not only meets your needs, it goes above and beyond with an array of valuable extras that will offer peace of mind, and help you better handle the problems that may come your way. This small business package could be for you, if you meet these simple criteria ±:
