What’s the Best Insurance My Landscaping Business Can Get?

It’s important to know what insurance products you need. Most landscaping businesses have a Business Owner’s Policy (BOP). By combining three general insurance coverages, a BOP provides great protection for small businesses and can also help save you money.
  • General liability insurance helps protect landscaping businesses from certain lawsuits due to injuries or property damage.
  • Commercial property insurance helps protect your place of business and the things you use to run it.
  • Business income insurance helps cover the loss of income if your business has to close because of covered property damage.
And if you run your landscaping business from home, you’ll want seguro para empresa con base en su hogar.
