Before you start a business, you should already have an idea how tough the road ahead will be. The risk is high no matter which industry you prefer and the competition is stiff regardless of your target market or your capital investment. It is the sole reason why insurance exists; it lives to support the business and lead it to success. However, every company has different needs, so which policy do you need the most?
Here are three ways to figure out the commercial insurance coverage that you need for your business.
Type of Business
Some coverage may not apply to a specific kind of business. If you have an auto shop or car rental enterprise, then Commercial Auto Insurance will be right for that. Meanwhile, if the company has nothing to do with cars and vehicles, this type of insurance is not fit for it. Professionals who work from home may be excluded in Commercial Property Insurance due to the lack of a physical building or office. However, freelancers may need a Professional Liability coverage.
Location and State
Different states have different laws when it comes to business. In most states, business owners need to take out an Employer’s Liability insurance before they can start operating. It doesn’t matter if your employees work part-time or full-time, as long as you employ them, you need the coverage. Here are the types of employees under the Employer’s Liability Insurance.
Some business owners think that insurance is just another expense and that their business can operate without it. Sure, the company has its legs to run, but the policy coverage is that extra leg that is beneficial when one of the legs get injured. Insurance is an investment that saves the business in times of troubles.
It is the business’ responsibility to protect its properties and workforce. The people do not just work for the money; they also want to be valued and appreciated for their hard work. Providing insurance is one of the best ways to show care and affection to the community.

It makes sense that different businesses require different types of insurance. I would imagine that a company that offers company cars as an incentive would need commercial auto insurance and that a company that doesn't wouldn't need to worry about it. This makes me wonder how many businesses have commercial auto insurance and how many stick with the commercial property insurance that you mention.
