If you run or own a business or commercial company, whatever type of activity you do, you will need some type of business insurance protection.
Before you buy any coverage, you need to get a business insurance quote for the risks that the business might face. This will be a quote for business property risk or business liability risk, depending on the type of work you do and where you do it.
Quotations for all types of companies are available either by visiting a local broker, directly from the insurance company by telephone or on the Internet from various sources.
Using the Internet to seek protection for your business is perhaps the easiest method today to get several offers from various suppliers in a short amount of time. The range of providers and coverage available for various trades and professions is very large and prices vary.
Finding a good supplier is usually just a matter of looking for insurance on the Internet for your type of trade or business, which will return a number of specialist providers who offer price quotes.
Online quotes are available from business insurance brokers, direct commercial insurance and price comparison sites, the latter offering a variety of policy and protection options for most risks.
Accountability insurance quotes are available for all trades and professions and offer public and employer liability as standard. Many accountability packages available on the Internet will offer offers for lost equipment and lost equipment or theft for small businesses and traders. These packages often include protection or the option to add additional insurance such as goods in transit covers, sub-contractors and temporary worker responsibilities and business interruption insurance for quotes.
Business property insurance quotes are available for all businesses, contents and stock of business premises. As with liability insurance, it's easy to find online providers that will offer comparative offers for building and business content insurance for many commercial properties.
Quotations can be compared for owners or owners who only want to cover the building elements of business property and also for tenants and rent holders who want to insure business content and stock. Typical citing packages available online, are for all types of shops, offices or commercial residential properties
Not all properties can be quoted online because they may have special guarantee requirements, and will need to approach a business insurance broker to get a quote. Examples of such buildings are large hotels, public houses, factory buildings, factories, warehouses, storage facilities, industrial plants, engineering risks and any buildings that do not meet the criteria established for standard office or store insurance packages.
To get an offer for this type of business property, it is necessary to implement what is known as a 'commercial mix' policy that has a specific risk section that needs to be completed and revised by the underwriter, before the risk can be quoted for.
