Property Insurance Overview

Property coverage in small business insurance can be structured several ways, and the premiums you pay are based on many different factors of your business and the limits of coverage that you select.

If you don't own your building, you'll simply need contents coverage. In the most basic policies, property insurance for small business contents covers furniture, fixtures, inventory, office equipment and other supplies stored at your facility or off-premises. You may insure those items for replacement cost (which means you'll receive a settlement based on how much it will cost to replace the items at today's market prices) or for actual cash value (ACV), which pays only for the depreciated value of the property. While replacement cost small business insurance policies have higher premiums, they may help your business recover from a loss faster, since you can replace all of the lost or damaged property with new items. For this reason, most insurance professionals will recommend buying property coverage insurance for small businesses on a replacement value basis.
