1. Educate Yourself
Before buying insurance, you should have a basic understanding of insurance coverages. It may be helpful to ask other business owners in your industry what insurance coverages they have.
2. Analyze you business
The next step is to assess your business so you can describe your operations to others. Prepare a written description of your business, explaining what it does and how it operates. Create a flowchart that describes each step of your operations. Make a list of the property your business owns.
3. Choose the right Insurance Agent or Brokers
Insurance is a people business. You’ll need an agent or broker with whom you can develop a long-term relationship. This person should be a licensed professional with a good knowledge of insurance coverages. He or she should also understand the insurance marketplace. Give your agent your written description of your business. Provide any additional information he or she requests. The more your agent knows about your business, the better he or she will be able to meet your insurance needs.
4. Buying Insurance
Your agent or broker should recommend coverages appropriate for your business. He or she should complete applications and submit them to one or more insurance companies. When the insurers provide quotes, your agent should help you review and compare them so you can choose the best options.
5. Review your insurance coverage regularly
Your business isn’t cast in stone. It will grow and change over time. Your insurance policies need to reflect those changes. You may need to buy additional coverages, or increase or reduce your limits. Meet with your agent or broker once a year, before your policies renew, to assess your coverage.
