Do I Need Small Business Insurance?

Yes, you need small business insurance if you want to protect your business. Not only is it required in some cases (worker’s compensation), but most people also cannot afford to cover a property loss or lawsuit out of pocket. You probably also depend on an income stream from your business that you may not be able to live without. Your small business insurance will help you stay in business and protect your assets.

How Much is Business Insurance?

On average, business owners pay $300 per month for a basic business insurance policy. Your cost will depend on many factors, such as how many employees you have, the nature of your business, the location, the value of equipment and more. If you have a business where employees are responsible for handling dangerous equipment, you’ll pay more than a business where employees mainly stock low shelves and run a cash register. Here’s a look at the average cost for typical business insurance components.

Type of Policy Average Monthly Cost
General liability $30
Commercial property $63
Business interruption $40
Commercial Auto $147
Workers’ Comp $70

Since no two businesses are exactly the same, you’ll work closely with your independent InsureOne agent to build a flexible and customizable policy that fits you just right.

How Can Business Insurance Help Me?

It can protect what you’ve worked so hard to build. You may not think it can happen to you, but you may be just one step away from financial disaster if you don’t take the right steps to protect your dream. For example, a simple busted pipe could cause major damage to expensive equipment that you’ll need to replace in order to keep the doors open. Likewise, if someone slips and falls while in your business, you could be sued.

In many cases, resulting costs from rebuilding after property damage or coming up with the cash to defend yourself in court are too much for many small- and mid-sized entrepreneurs. This is why having the right protection is vital to your success. Here are a few examples of types of insurance you may need.

Small Business Insurance

Depending on your assets (such as building ownership, inventory and equipment) you may need a business owner’s policy (BOP) which includes property and liability coverage, a commercial liability umbrella policy (CLUP) to protect you against lawsuits and worker’s compensation (typically required by law in every state).

Medium Size Companies

For medium-sized companies, you’ll need to take a look at your accumulated assets (are you renting or do you own your building?) for a BOP policy, the number of employees and state and federal regulations, plus a commercial liability umbrella policy for lawsuit protection. You may also need to consider adding some form of stakeholder insurance, in case a major player or investor suddenly leaves.

Contracting or Trade Business

Depending on your assets (such as building ownership, inventory and equipment, plus vehicles) you need a business owner’s policy (BOP) which includes property and liability coverage. You may also want a policy that includes surety and fidelity bonds as a guarantee for contracts, a commercial liability umbrella policy (CLUP) for lawsuits and contractual requirements, commercial auto insurance for business vehicles (and employees who drive their own vehicles for business) and workers comp.

Food Service Business

Whether you own a donut shop, a specialty coffee café or a full-sized restaurant, you’ll need to make sure your assets are covered. After all, you’ve purchased or are leasing some expensive equipment. Along with the regular coverages (BOP, CLUP), you’ll want something to protect you from losses due to food contamination, spoilage and equipment breakdown.

Retail Shop

Retail shop coverage should include the regular BOP and CLUP, but you’ll also want to consider loss of income, employee dishonesty, data compromise and more coverages tailored specifically to retail shop owners. As with all policies, your InsureOne agent will help you customize your business insurance to fit your needs.
