You need to think in terms of risk management.

The first thing to understand is the accurate value of your business. The value of the business is not just the value of assets but the cash flow of the business and the income earn from it. It is better to have a formal valuation done to know the real market value. The next thing that you need to do is find out insurance companies who will give you a very competitive coverage. Independent agencies that are part of the national network of agencies have full brokerage capability are better suited to offer you competitive prices.

Once the valuation is done, it is necessary to know the likely liability from the remote liability and decide the cover that needs to be provided. The liabilities like Officers liability covers the business against suits relating to management mistakes, employee rights and so on. An umbrella policy that covers you beyond the general liability of the Business policy could also be an additional feature that can be considered. In addition to such a policy, you have to ensure that special equipment and vehicles are also properly covered. When employees are using their own vehicles for business trips they should be well covered. Even the material in transit and the equipment and machinery on location has to be covered.

The business relies on property for income. Losses incurred due to destruction of property are sometimes covered as business interruption insurance. Such a loss due to damage or stoppage should be covered. Some things like employee dishonesty, floods, burglary, computer frauds, etc are generally not covered under the Business Owner's policy. Care has to be taken to see that you get some appropriate coverage in addition to your Business Owner's policy. The last but not the least, human capital is also of value to the company. At least the key people in the business, not necessarily the owners and the directors, should be covered for the continuation of the business.

It is necessary to carry out a proper risk analysis and the research of insurance carriers who would cover a major amount of risk at a competitive price. Every year when you buy or renew the insurance cover for the business, it is important to review the needs of the organization in the current and the future scenario. As you need cover for multiple reasons you may shop for cover from multiple carriers in Sacramento. Consider multiple policies from the same carrier if it offers some discount for multiple policies.
