Get Started With a Business Owner’s Policy (BOP) for Florists

Many florists start with a Business Owner’s Policy (BOP) for their insurance needs. It combines three types of insurance coverages many small businesses need to help protect them from various risks.
General liability insurance can help cover claims that your flower shop caused bodily injury or property damage. If a customer slips on your wet floor after you watered your flowers, this insurance can help pay for their medical bills.
Commercial property insurance helps protect your owned or rented building and the equipment you use to run your flower shop. This includes:
  • Flores
  • Hoses
  • Floral wire and tape
  • Scissors and cutters
  • Flower coolers
Business income insurance, also known as business interruption insurance, can help replace your lost income if you can’t open your flower shop because of damage to your property.

Florist errors and omissions insurance can help protect your business if a client sues you for making a mistake in your professional services. Also known as professional liability insurance, this coverage can help pay for your legal costs, settlements and judgments.

Covering Your Flower Shop's Property

A fire, storm or any other property damage can prevent you from opening and running your flower shop. That’s why florist insurance is important to have because it can help you make the necessary repairs to get back up and running after a covered property loss.
