The first and most important step in securing insurance for your business is finding the right insurance agent. A great insurance agent will be sure to get the best and most comprehensive coverage and the lowest cost possible. Here are some tips on how to find a good insurance agent for your business needs:

  • Contact your personal lines (home/auto) agent and find out the types of insurance you will need for your business. Cant they provide this coverage for you? It may be most convenient to keep all your insurance with the same agent.
  • Be sure the agent you choose is knowleadgeble on the types of insurance you will need. Are you getting protection for your liability, property, and workers comp if you have employees? Do they also have any risk management tips and/or suggestions?
  • Look into business trade associations you may belong to, they might sponsor insurance programs that are suited specifically for your type of business. If they do not directly sponsor insurance programs, they will be able to suggest companies and agents that do.
  • Ask any friends or colleagues that are in your line of business who their insurance agent is. Ask them what they think of their customer service, premiums, and any other insurance concerns you may have.
