What if I need property and general liability coverage?
That's a Business Owner's Policy
What does it cover? A BOP combines General Liability Insurance with Property Insurance to give you an affordable, convenient coverage solution that will protect you against property damage (e.g. fire damage to buildings, equipment getting damaged or vandalised) as well as against third-party claims (e.g. bodily injury, property damage, personal injury). It can also cover you against loss of income if your business has to temporarily stop operating due to an event, such as a natural disaster.
When do you have to have it? It is recommended for new businesses starting up. Small businesses such as restaurants and retail stores can benefit from a BOP as it insures them against certain unexpected losses outside of those only covered under General Liability Insurance.
Approximate Cost A BOP can cost $500 - $3000 approximately, depending on the size and nature of the business. Generally, costs will vary depending on your specific business, with the amount and value of your commercial property in particular impacting the premium.
