Business insurance FAQs

I have a home-based business, do I still need to purchase business insurance?

Generally speaking, yes, you should have business insurance even if you work from home. Your home insurance will likely not cover you if a claim arises as a result of activity related to your business. For example, if you run a cookie business out of your home and someone gets sick from eating one of your cookies and decides to sue, your home insurance policy will not cover you. You will need business insurance to protect yourself.

What are some ways to keep business insurance costs down?

An insurance broker will be able to discuss ways to maximize the value of your insurance coverage. A broker is an insurance expert. They’ll get to know you and your business so they can offer you the exact coverage you need.

What should I do if the needs of my business change?

Many businesses evolve over time so if your needs change, simply let your insurance broker know and they can adjust your policy as needed.
