[toggle title=”Can I get insurance for my vehicles if I rent them out?“]

Yes, most commercial insurance companies will provide you with a policy. Expect to pay higher premiums to offset the increased risk.


[toggle title=”I work in a high risk industry. Can I still get commercial insurance?“]

If you work in a high risk industry, it is still likely that you can get commercial cover. Your premium will be higher than if you work in a lower risk industry.


[toggle title=”Which company is best for small business liability insurance?“]

Each commercial insurance company provides different policies, pricing and levels of service. Get at least three insurance quotes to compare policies. Ask your friends and family who they use.


[toggle title=”When I sign up for my home business insurance, do I have to tell the provider about previous insurance claims I have made?“]

Yes. If the insurance company discovers that you have lied or withheld information, your policy will be considered void and you will not be reimbursed for the premiums you have paid.


[toggle title=”One of my commercial buildings has burned to the ground. Can I purchase liability insurance only?“]

Yes, as long as the building has completely burned to the ground and does not pose a danger. If half the building remains and is deemed a hazard, you will find it hard to obtain liability insurance coverage due to the elevated risk.
