Home Businesses Need Coverage
From Ryan Hanley, Trusted Choice
Some business owners who work out of their home might think that they don’t need insurance at all. But that isn’t the case.
Hanley explained in a phone interview with Small Business Trends, “If you run an Etsy store out of your garage and you keep all of your products and supplies out there. Say your house burns down and all of that is gone, your homeowners’ policy isn’t going to cover that.”
Contrary to popular belief, homeowners’ insurance policies do not generally cover home-based business losses. Depending on risks to your business, you may add riders to your homeowners’ policy to cover normal business risks such as property damage. However, homeowners’ policies only go so far in covering home-based businesses and you may need to purchase additional policies to cover other risks, such as general and professional liability.
