Business  Insurance

What is a Business Insurance Policy for?

Business insurance helps protect businesses against risks unique to their specific situation. It can help pay the cost of property damage, lawsuits, lost of business income and other covered losses.

 

Businesses often buy more than one coverage and combine it in one single policy called "Business Owner's Policy" or "BOP".

This unique type of policies combine property coverage, general liability, business income and other optional endorsements in one single cost effective policy.

At BLS Nielsen we specialize in flexible insurance solutions for small and midsize businesses, let us design your policy to perfectly fit your business needs and budget.
