Property Insurance Coverage

Every business has some type of property that should be insured. Buildings, personal property, equipment, inventory, customers property, etc. can be insured under a business property policy.

It is critical that you insure your property with a limit that is adequate to repair or replace the damaged property.  Some property policies include a penalty (co-insurance) if you do not carry an adequate limit. It is extremely important that you work with your agent to determine the correct limits of insurance for the property that you want to cover. 

Property premiums vary by the type of construction, the location of the property, the limit carried and the deductible.  Increasing your deductible will lower your insurance premium. Most of our clients request a $1,000 or $5,000 property deductible.  

Here are a few examples of property related losses.


  • A fire or act of nature (wind, earthquake, flood, etc.) causes damage to your building. 
  • Your building is vandalized 
  • Someone breaks into your business and steals your property
  • A customer’s property was stolen while in you care, custody or control
  • Perishable goods spoil due to a power failure
  • Your business is shutdown due to a loss and you lose income while your property is being repaired or replaced

Commercial property consists of commercially owned buildings, the business owned contents, and the loss of income resulting from a covered loss.
It will mainly cover damage to the building, the loss of the business’s contents, loss of income, and many extra coverages such as changes to county ordinances or laws.
No, not by law but it is usually required by the bank or mortgage company if there is financing involved
Insurance companies use building cost estimators to calculate the replacement cost of the building. The business owner or accountant should provide the list contents and inventory that the business wants insured.
You can purchase either a very simple “commercial fire” policy that provides limited coverage, or a business owners package that provides coverage for liability, buildings, and contents.
