Insurance Policy considerations for Sharpening Businesses

admin : May 20, 2015 2:15 pm : Educational Events

Many small business owners purchase a business package policy called a “BOP”, a business owner’s policy. A BOP typically includes property insurance, business interruption/continuation insurance and liability insurance. Often it is a less costly option for small businesses than buying a set of individual policies. Many insurers customize BOPs for specific types of businesses.

However, a BOP does not cover professional liability (liability claims arising from wrongful practice by professionals), auto insurance, workers’ compensation, health or disability insurance, all of which need to be purchased separately.

A home-based sharpening business or a company with only a few employees may start out with a BOP and then expand its coverage as it grows.

NOTE: If you are a sharpening service vendor at Farmers’ Market venues or Dog/Animal Shows, we have some resources for you below at the end of this article. more »
