Is It Important to Have A Business Insurance?

Business InsuranceYou may be wondering for your business, especially if you are running a cleaning business, if there will be a time to purchase business insurance. Now more than ever it is actually incredibly beneficial and part of standard safety procedures to have insurance for your business. You may be asking if there are certain businesses that do not need insurance depending on what type of business, how many employees, if there are face-to-face customers and so on – and yes, there are plenty of factors that go into making these decisions.

REASONS

There are certainly two main reasons to get business insurance. The first is that it is a legal requirement and that you must get it. This may be the case through the Small Business Administration of your specific area, and it is best to check with them regarding these regulations. Some states require certain types of insurance for employees as well as disability insurance. With health care regulations changing, it is important to check in with those procedures as well. If business insurance is not required for your company, it may be just that your company has the “nature” of needing insurance. For example, if you are running a cleaning business, you may want to get insurance as there are possible risks of being in clients’ homes, such as damage, theft or an employee being injured. Being insured and bonded as a cleaning business would be an excellent idea. Often times, clients are looking that you are insured, as they want to be safe in their selection as well.

BENEFITS

There are plenty of benefits to getting business insurance. No matter what the nature of your company may be, you are protected in case of an “act of God” — so if you run a t-shirt company that ships products, if your home or factory is damaged in a fire, you can potentially be covered. If you are a doctor, you would want insurance less for “acts of God,” but for general liability and malpractice. And if you work heavily with clients such as with a cleaning business, pet sitting business, or contracting business, you’re going to want to be insured and bonded to be working under their roof.

HOW TO OBTAIN

There are plenty of ways to obtain insurance for your business. First, don’t forget to shop around — look at local companies that may be experienced with your area or larger, national companies that have experts in every single state. Be sure to spend time with your insurance company and not only purchase the insurance, but become an expert. Some insurance claims can be tricky and your insurance may not even cover the entire claim, so it is important to keep that in mind, for example. After shopping around, determine the best price for the best policy that meets all your needs. Doing a risk management analysis can help you determine the best insurance for your company.

Once you purchase your insurance, no matter how big or small your company may be, make sure you are familiar with all procedures in case you need to use your insurance. Using business insurance with new clients and assuring them that you have set up safety measures is very important as well. If you are in charge of other managers, make sure they are familiar with procedures as well. Business insurance is one of the best choices that a company can make to protect itself in case of accidents, malpractice, and acts of God – be sure to learn more about it and discuss your options with potential insurance companies for the best protection on the market.
