Does My Business Require Commercial Insurance?

Published: 10/12/09

Commercial insurance is used as risk management in most businesses. The insured amount will serve the purpose of meeting any unexpected huge expenses in the business such as property damage, liabilities or any machinery breakdown. The insured amounts and premiums can differ based on the size and nature of the business. Small businesses may not require huge insurance amounts, while big businesses will require the large machinery and property to be insured.

In case of any property damage, the insurance will cover the damage. If the company incurs any liabilities, this insured amount can be used in certain situations. Owing to the benefits of this, commercial insurance is very important for a business. It can protect the company from most unforeseen situations. Things like theft are also covered under this insurance policy. Even if there is a business interruption due to any circumstance that puts the business at risk, this insured amount is useful. So when you are insuring your business, you have insured your company’s property as well as any personal investments you have put into it such as the land, money, and equipment.  

As mentioned before, the importance of insuring your business is realised when an unexpected and unfortunate situation occurs. However, if no such unfortunate situation occurs, you usually get back the insured amount. But if you haven’t insured your business, and if in an accident the costly equipment becomes completely damaged, you will realise the mistake and you might suffer huge business losses.

To take a commercial insurance policy for your business you must depend on a reputed and reliable insurance company. You can collect a list of the companies and get in touch with the executives for details on the insurance amounts and premiums or employ an insurance agency for the purpose. If you are undertaking the process by yourself, this may take more time as you have to contact the companies and do the required ground-work. But if you employ an insurance agency, the work becomes a lot easier. They will do the research and let you know the best policy that suits your business and requirements. You can find the local insurance agents by surfing on the Internet or looking up the local directories.

There are different types of insurance policies for businesses. So you can discuss the best policy for your requirement and apply for it through your agent and when you apply for a policy through an insurance agency, the agency takes up the responsibility of giving the policy to you. For most businesses it is easy to obtain an insurance policy but for some it is not that easy. If a business does not generate enough revenue to meet the insured amount or has had considerable losses in the previous time, getting insurance might not be easy for such companies. Big insurance companies and agencies have different specialised departments which handle the different types of insurance policies for businesses.

The bottom line is that don’t let media and other factors influence or coerce your decision. Take your time, do your research and then take a call on what you need to do.
