How commercial insurance can save your small business

The vast majority of businesses in the United States are classified as small businesses. Small businesses are all businesses with less than 1500 employees, but 89% of small businesses have 20 or fewer employees. They are very vulnerable to the many risks that are out there and not always able to survive when one hits their business. With commercial insurance a small business has a much better chance to survive. At Luke Peterson Insurance in Altoona, IA we offer our customer A+ rated carriers and are committed to providing the highest possible level of customer service. 

If your small business is hit by a covered peril, it can be hard to recover. With commercial property insurance you will be able to repair or replace all the things you need to keep your business in operation. This includes the building if you own it as well as your equipment you need to do business. It can help replace your office equipment, inventory and raw materials. Without commercial property insurance you would need to repair or replace all these things yourself. Your business might now survive. 

One area where small businesses are especially vulnerable is liability. It can be a customer, a vendor or an employee who decided to sue. The cost of legal help as well as any judgement against you can be enough to put you out of business. Commercial liability coverage may be the best investment you ever make in your business. 

If something happens to your business that means you can’t do business as usual, you won’t have any income. Business interruption insurance can help make sure you have the cash you need to pay your bills and salaries until you business is able to operate again.
