Commercial property insurance is designed to cover expenses resulting
from loss of/damage to a policyholder’s building and contents. “Contents”

Some businesses give too little thought to or even underestimate the value
of their assets only to discover, once a loss occurs, that their company is
under-insured. Accurately valuing BPP may take some time and effort, but
the financial benefits are well worth the task.


Create and maintain an inventory of items and their estimated value; review and update annually.
Take into account seasonal fluctuations in your inventory.Look into Inland Marine Coverage if you have items that leave your commercial space.
Exclude company-owned vehicles which are insured through a separate policy.

Consult with a licensed insurance agent about coverage options.
