Why Do You Need Commercial Property Insurance?
Commercial property insurance pays to repair or replace your building and business property damaged by a fire, storm, or other event covered by the policy. It can also pay some of your lost income if your business is unable to operate normally.
How much business could we actually do without computers, files, furniture and product inventory? Protect these key components against the devastating effects of their loss with a business property insurance policy.
One of the most common types of business insurance is commercial property insurance, which provides a wide range of coverage for buildings, inventory, equipment, tools and more. Losses from fire, break-in, vandalism, wind and other natural or manmade disasters are examples of what is typically covered.
With a custom Property Insurance policy from Coast Insurance Services Inc., you can ensure that the building itself and the personal property of your business is protected from minor accidents or a major financial loss. Our insurance specialists can help you create a policy that keeps your small-to medium-size business insured from top to bottom by covering such items as:
- Your building
- All interior items (desks, furniture, etc.)
- Any outdoor signs on your property

- Your inventory
Other items that are typically found on a Property Insurance policy can include Builder’s Risk insurance and Equipment Breakdown coverage. Builder’s Risk protects any materials or equipment from damage or loss sustained during construction or remodeling, while Equipment Breakdown, or Boiler and Machinery, keeps any electrical, electronic, or pressurized equipment on your premises insured from breakdowns or loss.
Questions? You’re covered.
Business property insurance is a commercial insurance policy that protects the place where you do business as well as the assets in and around it. Also referred to as commercial property insurance, it provides covered loss protection to your business property, whether you rent or own it.
The costs associated with your business property insurance policy vary by state and industry. In addition, an insurance agent considers the following characteristics of a building when determining the cost of a commercial property insurance policy:
- Construction – the materials a building is built with
- Occupancy – how the property is used, i.e., retail, manufacturing, or rental
- Protection – how the building is safeguarded from fire
- Exposure – external hazards that exist primarily due to location
This amount will vary based on the type of building, cost of building, location, and many other factors. The best practice is to speak with your agent to make sure the building is covered the way you want.
