Basic Funeral Home Insurance Coverage
General liability insurance: protects the business when being sued from claims of bodily injury, personal injury, or property damage to another party.
Commercial auto insurance: protects any limos, hearses, and other vehicles used in the business. Including any non-owned or hired vehicles, you or your employees may use in the operation of the business.
Professional liability insurance, or errors and omissions insurance: is necessary for funeral directors in situations where a family of a deceased person claims that you have caused them financial harm due to negligence, errors, or omissions. Even if the lawsuit is unproven, your professional liability policy will help cover the costs to prove your case.

A BOP package, which may be customized, combines property insurance, liability coverage, and more into one custom, convenient policy. Business Owners Policies are usually sold at a premium that is less than the total cost of the individual coverages.
Do I Need Insurance Before I Start a Business?
You should invest in coverage for your business before your first interaction with a customer. Although the cost of insurance may seem high for a brand new business, it's best to be proactive when it comes to protecting your assets. After all, you can't buy insurance to cover a loss that has already occurred.
