What are the different types of business insurance?

What are the different types of business insurance? Analyzing the different types of business insurance is not always easy?

Business insurance requirements vary by state, and the names of individual coverages are not always uniform among insurance companies.


For example, one insurer might refer to coverage for the accidental breakdown of boilers, machinery, and equipment as boiler and machinery insurance,

while another insurer calls it equipment breakdown coverage or mechanical breakdown coverage.

To make things even more confusing, names like “boiler and machinery insurance” often include coverage for more than what the name suggests, like computers and office equipment. Below is a list of some of the types of business insurance coverage we carry at Nationwide to help you understand the types of business insurance available.

Types of Business Insurance

  • Business property insurance can help protect your business’s physical assets, such as buildings, furniture, equipment, and inventory. You can purchase business property coverage even if you work from home.

What type of business insurance do I need?

At a minimum, every small business needs property insurance and liability insurance, even if you work out of your home. If you have commercial vehicles,

you will need commercial vehicle insurance. And if you have employees, most states will require you to carry workers’ compensation insurance.

other small business insurance needs to depend on the type of business, size, location, annual revenue, and how many years it has been in business.

To make things easier for yourself, find an insurance company you can trust, and then look for coverages specific to your industry.
