How to Assess Business Insurance Quotes

As a business owner, you already know the importance of having adequate insurance coverage. That is why you have started to shop around and look for coverage. As you collect business insurance quotes, it pays to be cautious about the coverages and policies that come with the price. That way, as you compare side-by-side, you can ensure you are truly getting the best plan and price for your business.

Tips for Reviewing Business Insurance Quotes

When looking at the quotes you receive, there are a few things you must remember:

  • The Premium is Not the Whole Story – Never look at just the monthly or annual premium. Some insurance companies deliberately quote low premiums to attract those small business owners on a lean budget. What they are hoping you will not see, however, is the lack of coverage you are getting for that low-ball premium. Remember that you are purchasing business protection; therefore, price should not be the only factor used to decide on your purchase.
  • Inclusions and Exclusions Matter – Look at the defining details of the policy and see what inclusions (also known as covered events) and exclusions (events not covered by insurance) are listed.
  • Limits and Deductibles – A business insurance quote should list all policy limits and deductibles that you will face if you ever have to file a business insurance claim. These limits determine how much monetary compensation you have access to, while the deductible lets you know how much cash you will pay out of pocket.
  • Discuss It With a Trusted Broker – Brokers are neutral third parties that can help you understand the insurance quotes you are reviewing. An experienced broker will find multiple insurance carriers for your business, compare all of the limits, deductions and inclusions/exclusions and see if they match up with your business’s specific liabilities and needs.

    The Nowell Agency has been my primary agent for many years and they are attentive, well-staffed, and easy to talk to. Their agency has helped me through state to state moves and career change and kept my assets covered.

    My very first insurance experience was when I bought my first house and I called the Nowell agency for a quote. I had no idea what I needed or how much and they were so very kind and knowledgeable and explained everything to me in detail which I so much appreciated. That has been 4 years ago and im still a customer never plan to leave.
