What Is Commercial Property Insurance?
Commercial Property Insurance helps protect the building your business owns or leases as well as your business personal property, including tools and equipment, inventory, and furniture. A commercial property insurance policy includes coverage for assets like accounts receivable, computers and lost income for when business operations are suspended due to a covered loss. Businesses can tailor their coverage to include additional protection like valuable papers and records coverage that can help pay to reproduce important documents, provide temporary storage and move records to avoid a loss.
Who Needs Business Property Insurance?
You might want to consider this coverage if you…
Own a commercial office or building.
Rent a commercial office or storage space.
Have valuable property, such as computers, culinary equipment, or specialized tools.
Have a property you rely on to run your business.
Worth noting: many commercial landlords require their tenants to have some Commercial Property coverage. Usually, they want you to purchase a policy that covers only your contents in the leased space. Read your lease carefully to check for potential insurance requirements.
How much does it cost to insure a commercial building?
