In the startup period of a young company, it happens quite often that one of the biggest mistakes made revolves around an unwillingness to spend money. While this is understandable, it can still come back to cause some real harm, and this is nowhere more evident than in the area of purchasing commercial insurance. Every business needs protection against the vagaries of competition, and commercial insurance can provide considerable protection against such uncertainties.
Types of insurance
It’s hard to know exactly what type of insurance your company might need, so your best bet is to contact a broker and explain your business, as well as the stage that it’s in. You may need general liability, cyber liability, or perhaps employment practices liability insurance – or even all three – but you need to know just what kind of coverage your business requires.
Find a Permanent Broker
The best thing to do about insurance is to find a broker who can advise you indefinitely about various coverages. Chances are that your business will go through several stages of growth, and several other changes along the way in terms of your processes and products, so you’ll need to have someone you can trust to modify your coverage as needed. If you can find someone who has your best interests at heart, this individual can be your advocate for the duration of your business life.
Review Quotes Carefully
Once you have several quotes in hand, it’s best to review them with a broker or some other commercial insurance professional, so that you don’t overlook something. You’ll want to obtain the optimal coverage for your business, without leaving yourself vulnerable to any unexpected scenarios, and for that, a professional will give you the best advice. Keep in mind that the coverage which fits your company best today, may not be the best fit for your company several years from now, so your coverage should be periodically reviewed.
