Business Owners Policy BOP- A BOP includes a bundle of coverages in one policy. This typically is a good fit for smaller businesses with very few employees. Read more about BOP’s here.

Commercial Package Policy CPP- If you own a larger company with greater risks and more employees, you will want to consider a CPP.  Large businesses can tailor the CPP to fit their needs with customized coverages, wording, and terms.  Lots of good information about this can be found here.

Commercial Auto- All businesses should have some type of commercial auto insurance.  It’s a lot like personal car insurance, but it is important to know that most personal policies will not always cover business related driving.  Further explanation of Commercial Auto can be found here.

Workers Compensation- Unfortunately, employees can and do periodically become injured while working on the job. If this happens, you definitely need to carry a worker’s compensation policy to cover any medical bills, recovery bills, lost wages, etc. for your employees.  You do not want to be without this type of coverage as those expenses add up quickly.
