Just as no two businesses are exactly alike, there are lots of differences between the many insurance policies and insurers out there. When thinking about what cover your business might need, it’s important to consider the different aspects of what you do and how damage or loss, or interruption to the business would impact you.

Whether a corner fish and chip shop, a boutique cafe or a 100+ seat restaurant or everything in between, hospitality (and retail) businesses are always a hive of fast paced activity.

What would you do if, through the course of conducting your business, you caused injury to another person or damage to someone else’s property? You’d feel pretty horrible, I know, but what happened if they wanted you to pay medical costs, or to fix the damage?
Do you own commercial property and lease it out? You have a unique set of risks that requires a Commercial Property Owners Insurance to properly cover not only your property but your rent and liability as a property owner.
