If you are a business owner and are looking around for a new Commercial Property Insurance policy, here are a few tips that can help you save some money when the time comes to get a new policy.
Compare Apples to Apples, not Apples to Oranges.
When shopping for a new policy and looking at different prices be sure you are comparing similar coverages! If you see a price that is drastically cheaper than another—you should look into how much coverage it provides. Cheaper policies might mean less coverage for your business.
Always Shop Around.
If you don’t like the price that you are given, don’t be afraid to shop around for a better price, and if you are turned down by a certain insurance company, don’t worry and just keep on shopping. Some companies have different methods of determining ‘yes’ or ‘no’ when providing coverage so don’t get discouraged if you are ever turned down.
Look at the Big Picture.
When deciding which company to choose, look at other factors beyond just price. If you have a company that is not as financially capable as another company, it may be harder to navigate the claims process if you ever had to. Just look at things as if you are in it for the long run!
