When you sign up for commercial property insurance, you expect a provider that takes the time to understand your individual business needs. The following three indicators can help you determine if your provider is giving your business the attention it deserves.
Your business is unique and needs a policy that fits like a glove. Factors that your policy provider should consider when setting your premium include your commercial structure’s age, the size of the business, and what, if any, equipment you house there.
Your commercial property insurance policy should clearly outline the following:
- What’s covered. You should never need to ask yourself, “Will insurance cover this?”
- What isn’t covered. If there are policy gaps, such as flood insurance, you need to know before something happens.
- What your policy limitations are and how much the policy can provide at its maximum.
The terms and conditions of your policy should be conveyed in clear, easy-to-understand language. If you have any questions about your policy, your insurance company’s staff should go out of their way to provide you with a concise, useful answer.
Businesses can expand overnight sometimes. Your provider should have scalable options and offer to consolidate your policies in a bundle-and-save model. If your business grows, you deserve protection that grows with it.
If your commercial property insurance provides a custom fit, clear coverage, and consolidation options, that’s one less thing on your entrepreneurial plate. When your business is protected, you can focus on doing what you do best: running it.
