Getting Down To Business

Home & Startup Business Insurance

Many home-based business owners and start up business owners are under the impression that insurance is not necessary for them. At W.B. White Insurance, however, we understand the importance and necessity of protecting your business regardless of its its size, location or its length of operation. All businesses have risks, which means that home business insurance and startup business insurance are absolutely crucial in providing you with a comfortable safety net.

When it comes to home business insurance, many mistakenly believe that their home insurance will cover them in the event of losses. In fact, liability is one of the greatest risks to home-based businesses. Risk management is not only for large businesses – it also is for home-based businesses and startups. In the event that your business faces a lawsuit, it would be unequipped to handle the legal fees, likely putting you out of business altogether. This is precisely why a home business insurance policy is necessary. Further, home business insurance also covers the things that you need to run your business, from desktop computers and laptops to items that you stock and even furniture. The single most important step you can take today to protect your investment is to get a home business insurance policy.

In short, home business insurance covers business property, which includes everything from inventory to your computers. It also includes business interruption coverage which will protect you in the event your business experiences costly downtown due to a natural disaster, for example. Lastly, your home business insurance policy will also cover liability. If a delivery person falls while on your property, you could be setting yourself up for a costly lawsuit. Start up businesses face these same kinds of risks, which is exactly why they need to consider startup business insurance to protect them.
