Whether you are the equity owner of a commercial office building or the property manager of a fitness center where equipment damage and onsite employee injuries can commonly occur, you need to do more than knock on wood.

Commercial Property Insurance You Can Trust

You need to be certain you have the commercial property insurance coverage that will protect and assist with any loses that occur.

There are many other risks, such as when a fire, theft or another type of disaster strikes your commercial business, and its people.

While protection is important to you, you still want a business insurance policy at a reasonable price, and a commercial insurance agent that well sit down and assist you in creating a plan to make sure your business needs are covered when the inevitable occasionally happens.

Broad Insurance Protection

Commercial property insurance can help protect the property your business owns and leases, including things like medical equipment, inventory, furniture and fixtures.

It also help cover the things you might not think of, like protection for your accounts receivable records and or computers and media. There is even an option that can help replace lost income when your operations are suspended and can no longer operate due to a covered loss.

Customized Commercial Business Insurance Coverages

Unlike the traditional business insurance agencies that only offer you one insurance provider’s options, we at Mahar Insurance agency broker various brands and types of commercial property insurance.

The result, we can custom tailor the coverage options of all of them to ensure we deliver the business property insurance policies that is a perfect fit for you and your business.

Best of all, we only work with the commercial business insurance providers that make buying and filing a business property insurance claim fast and simple.

In addition to Business Property Insurance consider these coverage options:
