Why Sell BOPs (Business Owner Policy)
A business owner policy can cover your customer's business from losses by writing all the necessary coverages on one policy. It's kind of like a homeowner's policy for a business. Just as every homeowner should have a homeowner's policy, every business owner should have the coverage provided by a BOP.
Traditional BOPs cover:
- Buildings and contents owned by the company, there are two different forms, standard and special, which provides more comprehensive coverage.
- Business interruption insurance, which covers the loss of income resulting from a fire or other catastrophe that disrupts the operation of business. It can also include the extra expense of operating out of a temporary location.
- Liability protection, which covers the company's legal responsibility for the harm it may cause to others. This harm is a result of things that owners or employees do or fail to do in a business operation that may cause bodily injury or property damage due to defective products, faulty installations and errors in service provided.
In addition, we have a market that can also include Professional Liability (also known as E&O) to many classes of BOP coverage. Businesses such as barber shops, dental labs, consultants, florists, accountants, travel agencies and many more are eligible for this type of coverage.
