Types of Commercial Insurance

Most people know of liability insurance or a business owner’s policy (BOP). Access Insurance Services wants you to understand that more than 15 types of commercial coverage exist though such as glass insurance, boiler policies, commercial auto, etc. This blog explains each succinctly so you can obtain the policy coverages you need to best protect your San Antonio, TX business.

A BOP provides you the three most common types of coverage bundled into one insurance policy. You obtain liability, property damage, and perils, and sometimes, business interruption insurance, in one policy that costs less than all three separately.

Consider glass insurance if you own a storefront, an office building, or a dance studio. Those business types have numerous windows or mirrors in their structure. If they crack or break, this policy pays for replacement.

A boiler or machinery breakdown policy keeps you toasty in winter. If your boiler breaks down, or your business, office, or manufacturing machines break, this policy pays for the repairs or equipment replacement.

Commercial auto policies cover what a personal auto policy and commercial insurance would not. You can obtain coverage for a single commercial vehicle or for your entire fleet.

Errors and omissions insurance protects you from mistakes that were not caused by negligence. If a product you manufacture broke and hurt someone, your E and O policy would pay the settlement. This falls into the same category as malpractice insurance for medical professionals.

Inland marine insurance helps any business that stores, transports, or delivers items belonging to another person. A dry-cleaning business would need this policy type as would a delivery service a jeweler, etc. 

Other types of commercial policies include business interruption, debris removal, law insurance, tenant’s insurance, and crime policies.
