covers your business’ physical assets including buildings and inventory. A wide array of events can fall under this coverage, such as fire, smoke, wind and hail storms, and vandalism. Flood damage is generally not covered without flood insurance

A business owner’s policy (BOP) bundles general liability and commercial property insurance
coverages and is generally the most affordable choice. With a single BOP policy, small business
owners are protected against theft, lawsuits, fire and more. Not all businesses qualify for a BOP, but as a startup, there is a good chance your business will be suited for affordable pricing that BOPs offer.
Floods can impact your business at any time, even if your business is located on top of a hill. Commercial property insurance
typically does not cover flooding, so having flood insurance can be crucial for your business to get back to work after a disaster. Backed by the federal government, the National Flood Insurance Program covers businesses from financial losses due to property damage caused by flooding.
