Business Owner’s Policy (BOP Insurance)
Save big on business insurance in California with a BOP (Business Owner’s Policy). A Business Owner’s Policy is a package that includes commercial general liability insurance and property insurance. Some package policies also include business auto insurance and professional liability insurance.
Small to medium size businesses that are “low-risk” can qualify for these BOP package policies at a reduced rate compared to what you might pay for separate policies.
A Business Owner’s Policy includes:
- General liability insurance to cover your commercial liability, and
- Property insurance for physical assets, such as contents, that are leased or owned
- A BOP insurance package policy might also cover the loss of business income and extra expenses caused by an insured peril.
In general, a business owner’s insurance package policy insures damaged or lost property for its replacement value. That means that in the event of a claim, you’ll receive a large enough settlement to replace the property, without any deduction for depreciation. A BOP’s property insurance also covers other people’s personal property, if you as a business owner are legally liable for damage to it.
General liability insurance
A BOP’s general liability insurance coverage is comparable to a typical commercial general liability insurance coverage (CGL) policy, in that it protects your business against claims of bodily injury or property damage. A BOP’s general liability coverage also provides business liability insurance coverage to pay the cost of:
- A legal defense in a lawsuit arising from an accident that causes bodily injury
- Claims such as libel, slander and false advertising – even if those claims are meritless
General liability insurance does not protect your business in the event that a client accuses you of professional errors or negligence. Those types of claims are normally covered by a professional liability insurance policy.
Is a package policy best for my business?
Sometimes buying a package policy from one company can afford big savings, but other times it may be beneficial to place some coverage with a different company for additional savings or extra coverage. At Alex Rue Insurance Agency we put together the best overall package for your business and help you determine whether that includes a package with one carrier or multiple companies. You may need general liability insurance, commercial auto, worker’s compensation and other coverages – they might not all fit with the same company.
