Business Owners (BOP)
Business Policies for Business Owners Across Virginia
If you run a small business, you will likely hear about a business owners policy. These policies are crucial for combining insurance that can protect your business. A business is a huge investment, after all, and without insurance, you could face financial loss and lawsuits without any hope for coverage.

What is a Business Owners Policy?
A business owners policy is a type of package policy combining business insurance coverages into a single policy. This type of policy allows small business owners in low risk industries to save money on important coverages by bundling them.
What Does a Business Owners Policy Cover?
At its bare minimum, a business owners policy combines:
General liability insurance covers claims against your business concerning bodily injury, property damage and personal or advertising injury. If someone is injured on your business’ property, for example, general liability insurance can cover the victim’s medical bills as well as protect your business against a related lawsuit.
Commercial Property Insurance
Commercial property insurance covers damages to the physical property of your business, such as offices, restaurants, stores and their contents. This covers against damages caused by fire, wind, hail, lightning, smoke, theft, vandalism and other disasters.
BOPs can be expanded for coverage depending on the business’ needs. Common coverages added to a BOP are:
Business Interruption Insurance compensates for lost income after a disaster if it renders the business inoperable.
Crime Insurance covers unfortunate cases where employees steal from the business.
Professional Liability covers claims against the business concerning professional negligence that causes a client to lose money.
Flood Insurance compensates for damage or loss of business property due to flooding.
Commercial Auto Insurance provides coverage for vehicles owned or used by the business. This may include comprehensive, collision, liability and more.
