Business Owners Policy

About Business Owners Policy

A Business Owners Policy (BOP) is designed for small to medium-sized businesses like yours, focusing on the needs of retail, mercantile, office, and habitational occupancies. It combines property coverage, liability, and additional coverages into one policy, excluding workers compensation, auto, and flood insurance. Optional coverages can be added to meet specific business needs. A BOP provides essential coverage at a lower cost than buying separate policies.
