A commercial property insurance policy may help protect against the cost of replacing lost or damaged property. Additionally, insurance may cover any associated losses—such as lost income—that are caused because part or all of your business is temporarily unable to operate.
Fire, flooding, theft, or accidental damage are unfortunate incidents that could not only damage or destroy your property but could also devastate your business. Whether it's your office building, commercial vehicles, or equipment, losing these assets would be a potentially critical setback for your business.
While coverage may vary from policy to policy, things like the building structure, equipment, fixtures, building contents, and the property of others are typically included in this type of coverage.
The cost of coverage may vary depending on a number of factors, including the type of building, the location it's in, the type of business you operate, and whether you have fire alarms and security systems.
It's worth exploring the options available to you with a business property insurance policy, as they may cover risks you hadn't thought of. For example, some policies may protect against the additional costs you face if rebuilding a damaged business facility means no longer being exempt from local building codes. Other points to check include whether a policy covers the cost of removing debris before reconstruction begins, as well as whether the business property is covered against weather event damage while being rebuilt.
