What is Business Owner’s Policy? What is a BOP?

A Business Owner’s Policy (BOP) combines business property and business liability insurance into one convenient policy. BOP Insurance helps cover your business from claims resulting from things like fire, theft or another covered disaster and from claims involving bodily injury, property damage and personal and advertising injury that could arise from your business’ operations. 

Many small business owners mistakenly believe that if they have general liability insurance, their own losses are covered as well as the losses of their customers. But a general liability policy does not protect you when it comes to your OWN property. If you want to protect your own property consider buying Business Owner’s Policy (BOP).

A (BOP) protects your business in a number of ways. It’s a policy that is important for you to know about because the unthinkable can always happen, and as a business owner you want protection from financially devastating possibilities. 

In today’s highly competitive business environment need every advantage to succeed. That’s especially true when it comes to selecting your business insurance. A business owner’s policy (BOP) along with Allen Financial’s superior line of business insurance policies you get very broad coverage at a highly competitive price. This gives you the protection you need and the cost savings you demand. 

BREAKING DOWN ‘Business Owner Policy (BOP)’

Specific coverage included in our BOP Insurance policy, A typical BOP policy includes… 

  • Commercial Property Insurance: AFIG property insurance can help protect the property your business owns, leases or rents, including things like buildings, equipment, inventory, furniture and fixtures. It provides coverage for loss of accounts receivable and valuable papers and records. Our BOP Insurance will also cover any business-owned items or items owned by a third party but kept temporarily in the care, custody or control of the business or business owner. Business property must usually be stored or kept in qualifying proximity of business premises (such as within 100 feet of the premises).
  • Business Interruption Insurance: If unexpected events cause a suspension in your operations AFIG’s BOP insurance policy
    covers the loss of income resulting from a fire or other catastrophe that disrupts the operation of the business. It can also include the extra expense of operating out of a temporary location.
  • General Liability Protection: Our Business Owner’s Policy covers the insured’s legal responsibility for damages it may inflict on others. When it comes to liability protection, the broader the coverage the better. That’s why The AFIG’s BOP Insurance policy provides business liability insurance that helps cover your business in the event it is sued for causing harm to a person and/or damage to property. It also helps cover the cost of your defense – because businesses can be sued even if they did nothing wrong.

What’s the Advantage of a Business Owner’s Policy?

Purchasing BOP insurance is smart and convenient. It simplifies coverage needs by including business property and business liability, two important coverages that most businesses need, in one policy. Compared to purchasing separate policies for business property and business liability, Allen Financial Insruance Group’s Business Owner’s Policy (BOP) offers businesses a way to save money while getting broad coverage for things like fire, theft, lawsuits and loss of income.
It’s an even smarter and more convenient choice because other important coverages can be added to it. Businesses with specific needs can tailor their business owner’s policy (BOP) by adding additional coverages like business income for off-premises utility services, data breach and more, to suit the particular needs of their company.
