Business Insurance


 
Insurance is a vital part of any business. Without insurance coverage, who is going to foot the bill should an employee get hurt on the job or if a disaster strikes? The only person responsible for protecting your business is you; make sure that you are covered in all aspects.
There are a lot of different coverage options for businesses. Not only can you get general business coverage (usually in the form of a “Business Owner’s Policy”), but you can also get coverage for the specialized needs of your business. Many insurance agencies can offer the following policies:
  • General Liability
  • Worker’s Compensation
  • Commercial Auto
  • Commercial Property
  • Errors & Omissions
  • And more…

Commercial Property Insurance

 
Although, most business owner policies (BOPs) do provide coverage for property, this most often pertains only to the actual structure of your business. Under a BOP, generally, the structure of your business is covered from events of “peril” (i.e. weather-related damage) and causes of loss (i.e. robbery). What about the furniture, computers, and equipment in your building? Who will cover the cost of replacing an outdoor sign?
This is where Commercial Property Insurance comes in. A typical Commercial Property Insurance policy will cover the property of your business that a BOP will not. Most insurance agencies can compile a Commercial Property Insurance line to include coverage for:

  • Structure (building) of your business
  • Furniture
  • Equipment
  • Lost inventory
 
  • Landscaping
  • Outdoor signs
  • Damage to the property of others
  • And more…
 
Commercial Property Insurance is customizable in most cases, allowing you to provide more coverage for the things that truly matter to your business, and less coverage to the things that do not. Don’t think you need Commercial Property coverage? Consider this: if a fire erupts in the building of your business and you lose your entire inventory, are you positive that your BOP provides enough coverage to replace it all? If someone breaks into your business and steals expensive equipment, are you positive your BOP provides enough coverage to replace it in full?

As a Florida business owner, you worry for the future of your company and staying afloat when many businesses are going under. Owning and operating a successful business has required you to be a risk taker, fearless and resilient in the face of adversity. But, what would you do if you were served with a lawsuit? Would your Florida business be able to withstand the financial devastation of a lawsuit?
A Florida excess liability policy will cover your business from catastrophic issues that threaten its security.

Commercial Auto

 
Many states require individuals to purchase auto insurance to protect their cars. Car insurance is mandated for good reason- if you get into an accident, you and the other driver involved will be thankful you have coverage. If you are a business owner whose company has a fleet of vehicles, the same auto insurance needs still apply.
Even if your employees use company cars for both business and personal use, it would be good to look into purchasing a commercial auto policy for your business. If the business is the owner of the vehicle, make sure the name of the business appears on the policy as the “principal insured” rather than your name.

Bond Insurance

 
A bond is basically a loan in which the lender is a common everyday consumer and the borrower is the government, an agency, or a company. The U.S. Treasury, municipalities, and companies issue or sell bonds to obtain certain amounts of money to fund their day-to-day operations or to finance specific projects. Purchase of bonds enables the borrower to invest cash that will eventually be returned, sometimes with added interest.
Because bonds are actually loans, the amount of the bond is the principle, and interest is paid on the principle: usually at a fixed rate. Bond insurance protects the issuer if they are unable to follow through on their end of the “bond bargain.” By paying an insurance premium, the bond issuer gains the security of knowing that the principle and interest of the bond will be paid for if the issuer in unable to do so.

How bonds are classified depends on several factors, including:
 
  • Whether or not they are secured or unsecured
  • Maturity rating
 
  • Tax status
  • Financial reliability of the issuer
 
Bond insurance, therefore, will correspond to the rating of the bond and is calculated based on the risk of failure to repay the bond. The only bonds that are not usually insured are government bonds, since the risk of failure to repay is minor.

When a bond issuer wants to assure potential investors that a bond is really and truly safe, they often turn to a bond insurer, like Gulf Coast Insurance, LLC. We can make both you and your potential investors feel comfortable and secure with their bond purchase. Simply fill out our quick online form today for a free quote on bond insurance.
