A Sample Of Our Coverages For Business
The companies we represent may offer the opportunity to package a number of these coverages within a single policy.
CONSTRUCTION AND BONDING

Backed with deep relationships with our construction insurance markets, we are able to negotiate the best possible pricing and protection for you.
Our understanding of your supply chain and how you make and deliver your product helps us protect it all along the way.

Home Based Business

If you have a home based business consider contacting us to discuss proper coverage options that offer both protection and affordability.
If your business frequently ships products or equipment, you may want to consider purchasing inland marine insurance. This type of coverage is especially important if you ship high-value products or materials, which are often excluded from basic property coverage. Inland marine insurance can cover a wide range of specialty equipment and products.
Ordinance or Law Coverage
One of the most needed types of coverage is also one of the most commonly overlooked, or even known about, by consumers. It’s called Ordinance or Law Coverage. As your building becomes older certain changes in your county’s building codes and ordinance change to reflect new standards for construction. If your older property suffers a substantial loss, fixing it may require a higher construction standard to reflect new laws, therefore simply replacing your property as it was just isn’t good enough to meet these new construction standards and codes. Ordinance or law coverage pays for these upgrades in building standards.
Preventative data protection systems are essential to minimize the potential for a security breach. Even with preventative actions in place, businesses should still be prepared in case of a security breach. Prepare your business with a cyber security policy and have confidence in your plan when issues arise. Cyber liability insurance protects your business against damages to your client and to your company. Expenses for lawsuits, reputation maintenance, data repair, and financial damages add up quickly. Limit your chances of a security breach and limit your damages with proper cyber liability insurance.
Special Event Coverage
Businesses sometimes sponsor events like conferences, receptions, exhibitions, or festivals. Such events can generate claims against the event sponsors. To protect themselves, businesses can purchase a type of liability coverage called special event insurance to protect against claims by third-parties for bodily injury or property damage. Special event insurance is inexpensive and must be purchased before an event takes place.
Umbrella and Excess Liability
This coverage complements your property/liability program and provides additional limits of coverage. In today’s litigious society, smart business people protect their investment with umbrella coverage.
This coverage is designed to meet the workers’ compensation laws of your state. Workers’ compensation coverage provides protection for injured workers and supporting protection through employer’s liability coverage.
