Additional Business Protection
In some cases, your business can save more by combining your Commercial Property Insurance with a Commercial General Liability policy. Other items that are typically found in a Commercial Property Insurance policy includes Builder’s Risk insurance and Equipment Breakdown coverage. Builder’s Risk protects materials or equipment from damage or loss sustained during construction or remodeling, while Equipment Breakdown, or Boiler and Machinery, keeps any electrical, electronic, or pressurized equipment on your premises insured from breakdowns or loss.

What is the Cost of Commercial Property Insurance?
Determining your policy premium will largely depend on several factors. The most important factor will be the value of all your business assets. Other factors considered when determining your risk for a Commercial Property Insurance policy include:
- Location: Are you in an area more prone to storms or other natural disasters? Is your building in a city or town with excellent fire protection or are you in a rural area with limited fire protection?
- Construction: When was your building constructed? Was it constructed using fire-resistant materials? Does the building have new or upgraded electrical wiring? What about plumbing and HVAC?
- Occupancy: Are you in your own stand-alone building or do you share a building with multiple tenants? What type of industry are you in? An office building carries less risk than a restaurant.
- Fire & Theft Protection: How close is the nearest fire station? Is a fire hydrant located close to your building? Do you have a fire alarm and sprinkler system? Does your business have a security system?
