Business Owners Policy, aka BOP, is a policy that combines property, liability and business interruption coverage for small- to medium-sized businesses. Business owner's policies are often the preferred method of coverage since they provide California business owner’s with comprehensive coverage that they would often not be able to afford if they purchased insurance policies individually. The minimum premium for many business classes starts at $500.

Why would I, a California business owner, purchase a Business Owners Policy?

Business Owners Policies are a cost effective means of applying for many business insurance coverages under one policy. Many businesses are required to carry liability coverage to occupy office/industrial space. BOPs are a great way to obtain your general liability coverage and add additional coverages like business income, theft coverage, employer's liability and more depending on the carrier.

Examples of how a Business Owner’s Policy can protect your business.

1. Do you have customers come to your California business office, whether you're in an office building or a retail location?

If so, a Business Owner's Policy provides you with "slip and fall" coverage. If someone were to become injured while at your business location, your insurance will cover any injuries or harm sustained by them. It will also protect you in the event you are sued for such an accident.

2. Do you operate a California retail location?

A Business Owner's Policy will cover you in the event that your merchandise is shoplifted.

3. Do you utilize computers and other electronic devices and media in your California business location?

A Business Owner's Policy provides you coverage if your computer equipment is damaged; you have damaged software or data loss due to power failures, computer viruses or other catastrophes.

4. Do you use cash register or store money or securities in your California business location?

A Business Owner's Policy will protect your money and securities that are used in your business should they be stolen, lost or destroyed.

5. If your California business is burglarized, a Business Owner's Policy will pay for lock and key replacement following the burglary or theft.
