While you have probably heard the words insurance bundling, you may not understand precisely what it is. And, yes, you probably have gotten discounts for bundling your homeowner's insurance and auto insurance, but what about your business? Insurance bundling can work for your business as well. Having most, if not all, of your policies with one insurance company is insurance bundling. Most insurance carriers offer a variety of insurance policies so they will provide some benefits to you, the consumer so that you will purchase all of your insurance needs from them.
An insurance company that is underwriting a new risk ends up spending more money to do so than if they already had an insurance product for that person or business. Insurance bundling comes in handy when the products can all be underwritten at one time, or if your insurance agent already knows you and what your company does. Unfortunately, many business owners only purchase the policies they need when the need arises, therefore costing them more money. You can save money by bundling your policies and purchasing them all at one time.
There are several benefits that come with insurance bundling. They include but are not limited to:
Often a Commercial Package insurance policy, which is a bundled policy, will include General Liability, Commercial Property, Equipment Floater, and Commercial Auto. You can also look into bundling a Commercial Umbrella, Professional Liability, Employment Practices Liability, Data Breach, and Cyber Liability. It will really depend on what type of business you operate and what your risks are. Work with an independent agent to discuss your business and insurance needs. This is one easy way to save money and keep your profits going up, which after all is why you got started as an entrepreneur, right?
As mentioned above, most companies will give you a discount if you bundle all of your insurance needs with them. Additionally, some companies will offer discounts if you also place your personal (auto, home, life, etc.) insurance policies with them.
