Why Complete a Business Insurance Review?
Items to Consider When Completing a Business Insurance Review
Have you added any new partners? There might be a need for life insurance.
As a business owner, you can ensure that your company is protected by keeping your general liability insurance, workers’ compensation insurance, and commercial auto policies updated to reflect changes in your business.
COVID-19 has created many questions about your personal insurance risks and coverage. Here are a few things to consider regarding your personal insurance policies.
Most standard personal insurance policies exclude injury or loss due to communicable disease. We recommend you consult with your agent for a review of your individual personal insurance coverage.
Most personal insurance policies exclude liability for any business operations. Working from home would be considered incidental and may not fall under the business exclusion. If you have clients in your home, it might impact your insurance.
What If I damage company-owned equipment? Your employer should have coverage for the business owned property.
What if I use my personal auto for business purposes? Most personal auto policies provide coverage for incidental use, going to the post office, getting supplies, etc. If you are using your personal vehicle for deliveries, Uber, or other business-specific tasks, you may need to amend your insurance policy.
We are committed to providing clients with the highest quality insurance plans available combined with some of the lowest possible rates. Whether you are shopping for auto insurance, home insurance, life or business insurance, we can help you obtain the best coverage available with the lowest rate possible.
Every one of us has certain things that keep you up once in a while. It might be your job, the kids, illness, or other life’s problems. Our goal to make sure that protecting your family with the right insurance does not keep you up.

A Home Insurance Update
Are you dashing through the snow to grandma’s house? Do silver bells keep ringing in your ear? If you are getting into the Christmas spirit, remember your homeowner’s insurance can play an important role in helping keep your home a warm and safe place for the Holidays.
With a little preventive action and a solid home insurance policy, those risks can fade into the background, allowing you to enjoy these next few weeks to the fullest.
Now is a good time to review your personal insurance policies, making sure they’re up to date. While many of your risks are probably covered, a few might not be as explained below.
Here are some examples of some crazy Holiday related insurance claims:
The holiday season is filled with fun, parties, food, gifts, overeating and unfortunately some risk. One of the fasted growing risks for many people are stolen packages by porch pirates. According to proopertycasualtiy360, over 26 million packages are stolen during the holiday season. Need more bad news?
Your homeowners or renter’s insurance generally may not cover this loss as it tends to be under your deductible. There could be coverage if you have personal property off premises insurance. Also for theft coverage to apply generally, you need proof of loss by a broker indoor, etc.
Call our office for a review of your homeowner’s insurance, as each policy is unique to your circumstances.
