Does commercial property insurance only cover the building?
No, commercial property insurance does cover the building if you own it, but it covers much more than that. It covers the things you need to conduct business, which can be machinery, office equipment, tools, electronics, raw materials, and inventory. It is important coverage for both property owners and renters.
Do I need to have commercial insurance in Texas?
No, commercial insurance is not required in Texas. In fact, Texas is the only state that doesn’t require workers’ compensation insurance. Just because it isn’t required, doesn’t mean it is a good idea to be without it. Bad things happen to businesses, even in Texas. Commercial liability is particularly important since one in three businesses will be involved in legal action every year.
Do home-based businesses need commercial insurance?
Yes, you do. Many home policies will be woefully inadequate when it comes to covering a business that you operate out of your home. You need commercial liability and commercial property coverage.
What coverage does business interruption insurance provide?
If your business is damaged by a covered peril and you are forced to close while it is being repaired, you won’t have any income. Just because you have no income, your expenses will not diminish. This insurance helps you pay bills and salaries. Surviving or not can depend on this insurance.
