Why Do You Need Business Insurance?

Why Get Business Insurance?

Businesses may have a variety of assets such as vehicles, office space and equipment, inventory, employees, a partner and, most importantly, yourself. To protect these assets and to protect your business from potential risks, you should consider getting insurance.

Could your business continue to operate if problems such as the loss of a key person occurs or there is a disaster at office or business premises? What if your inventory is damaged in a flood or fire makes it impossible to carry on with your business? The right business insurance can make things manageable if problems such as these arise. Morison Insurance can provide insurance for your earnings and property as well as liability insurance. Below is some general information about business insurance for contractors and tradespeople, farm operations and automobiles used in a commercial operation.

Also important is liability insurance. No matter how careful you are, mistakes can happen. You, your employees, your equipment or your suppliers could end up hurting your customers, your employees or other people who are involved with your business. To limit your liability, you should also have liability insurance for your business. Consider general liability, product liability, professional liability and cyber liability insurance for your protection.

Our commercial insurance brokers will review your insurance needs and can provide insurance for your business. We will happily review your current policy to make sure you are getting the right insurance and we will shop at many of Canada’s best insurance companies to get you the best price.
