The Basics of Commercial Property Insurance
A commercial property insurance policy covers you for losses relating to a fire, explosion, theft, vandalism, among other things. It includes two separate coverages: building and contents.
Building Coverage: What’s Included
- The building
- Outdoor signage
- Outdoor storage
Contents Coverage: What’s Included
- Computer equipment
It is important that you understand that flooding is not a protected event under a basic commercial property policy. If you want protection in the event of flooding, you will need to purchase a separate flood insurance policy.
Actual Cash Value vs. Replacement Cost: How to Choose
Your premiums for a building & contents policy will depend greatly on whether you choose replacement value or actual cash value coverage. Replacement value enables you to replace your lost item with a similar item at full value. Actual cash value, on the other hand, takes into account depreciation. So replacing an item you bought several years ago will likely result in a lower payout.
As a result of the lower coverage, actual cash value is often the cheaper option. Whether it is the best option for you, however, is something you should discuss with your independent insurance agent.
