FAQ: What is a Business Owner Policy and How Does it Work?Posted: September 5, 2011
Here is an excerpt from a new blog post at GreggMarcus.com:
A Business Owner Policy (BOP) is an insurance package that assembles the basic insurance policies required by a small business owner in one simple bundle. Since it is a single policy, it is always cost-effective; costing less money than if you had purchased each individual policy separately. Gregg S. Marcus, is a Long Island Insurance Executive, answers the most commonly asked questions about a Business Owner Policy below:
Is a Business Owner Policy (BOP) right for my business?
Business owner policies are specifically designed for small to medium sized businesses such as retailers, wholesalers, service businesses and small offices. A BOP is not recommended for larger companies or for manufacturers who can face greater liability risks.
How does a BOP protect my business?
Business owner’s need to protect more than what an individual policy would cover. In order to protect your buildings, equipment and products, a BOP contains property coverage. It also protects your business from lawsuits with liability coverage. Since every business is different and carries different risks, a BOP can be customized to fit your needs.
