There are a number of factors that could come into play when it comes to purchasing commercial property liability insurance. Knowing what these factors are ahead of time may help prepare you when the time comes to obtain an estimate.
The size and age of your property are probably the most obvious factors an insurance agent will consider when generating your quote. A large building will cost more to insure, as will an older building. These have more potential for hazards than a smaller or newer building.
Your agent will also want to know about the inventory and equipment your business contains. The more potential these have for leading to injury the more a plan could cost. For example a business that serves alcoholic beverages may want liquor liability as part of their plan.
Your neighborhood is also a factor. Buildings located in areas high in crime are considered higher risk. Property in these areas may have higher insurance costs.
Now that you know what some of the factors are for commercial property liability insurance costs, you can start seeking out quotes for your insurance plan. Be ready to tell your insurance representative about the age and size of the property as well as the neighborhood around it. With this information they can help you find the right plan for your property.
