If you’ve ever seen an insurance commercial, then you’ve heard about the benefits of bundling home and auto coverage. Bundling coverage often provides benefits for the consumer by allowing them to find coverage for all of their basic exposures while also saving money. On the commercial side, the most common cost-saving bundle comes in the form of a business owner’s policy or BOP.
A business owner’s policy allows a company to cover all of their major property and liability risks in a single package with premiums that are usually lower than they would be when purchasing each coverage individually. The components of a BOP are typically commercial general liability, commercial property insurance, and business income interruption insurance.
Businesses that need BOPs are most frequently small to mid-sized businesses with physical locations outside of a home. If you’re trying to decideif a BOP is right for your company, understanding the core coverages may help.
As with all forms of insurance, the finer details of your coverage and exclusions may vary depending on your carrier. It’s important to thoroughly discuss your needs with a professional to ensure you’re getting everything you need and nothing you don’t.
Many carriers offer supplemental coverage options to account for risks that may fall outside of standard BOP inclusions. Some examples include:
