We get it, sometimes insurance feels like a black box — no visibility into the inner workings. While we can't tell you exactly how much it will cost, we often explain insurance costs as a simple equation:
First we look at your loss history and how your business has done over time.
Then we look at your current situation, risk exposures and other industry factors.
The first two factors will determine how many insurance options you have.
The combination of these factors creates the overall price for your insurance.

As an independent agent we work with hundreds of carriers to help find the best policy for your specific needs.
You can certainly report your claim directly to the company especially if the damage is significant and is more than your deductible. If you are not sure what your deductible amount is or have questions about the loss, call your agent. We are here to discuss your options and answer your questions before notifying the company.
If you have employees, you have to buy worker’s compensation coverage. If you’ve entered into a lease agreement, you’ll need to procure liability & property coverage. There are many other coverages that would be recommended depending on your specific business. To find out, contact one of our business insurance professionals.
Your policy premiums are dependent on three primary variables: insurance carrier capacity, your exposures, and your loss experience. If there’s a shortfall of capital in the insurance marketplace, the cost of all insurance will be high. The more property you have to insure or the more exposures to loss you have, the higher your premiums. The higher your historic losses, the less likely insurers will want to take on your risk, thereby increasing your premiums.
