A Business Owners Package (BOP) can be referred to as a homeowners package for your business.  Since they were developed over 30 years ago Business Owners Policies have become an important part of running a small and medium-sized business.  Business Owners Policies combine the basic coverages needed by most businesses into a package with lower premium costs than if purchased separately.  Combining the services not only saves you money but makes things more simplified by having all your coverage in one place instead of having a collection of small policies.  The efficiency allows insurance brokers to offer lower premiums for packages.

    Excluding auto and worker’s compensation insurance, a Business Owners Package provides coverages needed by small and medium sized businesses.  Business Owners Policies normally consist of property coverage, General Liability Coverage, and some additional types of coverage that you business will require.

    A Business Owners Package could include:

    1. Property Insurance
    2. Business Interruption Insurance
    3. Casualty or Liability Insurance
    4. Crime Insurance
    5. General Liability Insurance
    6. Borrowed or Rented Vehicle Coverage
    7. Business Income and Extra Expense Coverage
