What is a business owner’s policy?
A Business Owner’s Policy (commonly referred to as a BOP) is actually a bundle of coverages that will protect your small business from many kinds of liability and property damage. A BOP is basically a convenient package deal of the insurance products your business most needs, and you can get one from Huckleberry in about 5 minutes. The coverage is affordable and everything’s online and super easy.
Does your small business need a business owner’s policy?
Yes. While it isn’t usually required by law, a business owner’s policy combines the policies you need most: general liability (so you won’t go out of business because of a third-party lawsuit), business property insurance (so you won’t have to worry about damage to your building or anything inside it), and business interruption insurance (so a temporary catastrophe doesn’t turn into a permanent shutdown).
Basically: a Business Owner’s Policy is a smart way to get the coverages you need to keep your business protected. And it could save you tens of thousands of dollars in expenses from unexpected incidents.
What does a Business Owner’s Policy include?

Common questions about a Business Owner’s Policy
A business owner’s policy isn’t required by the government, but you should get one anyway. Some of your clients will probably require proof of general liability (which is, conveniently, included in a BOP), and a lawsuit, an unexpected shutdown, or a fire could cost your business tens of thousands of dollars if you aren’t insured. Getting a BOP is an affordable, responsible way to get the most important coverages that will keep your business protected.
Probably! If you run a very small business, you might be even more vulnerable to an expensive lawsuit or a business shutdown than a bigger business. (And if you don’t have a building or property to protect, you won’t be charged for those coverages.)
Yep, a Business Owner’s Policy includes general liability. In fact, purchasing the BOP bundle is one of the most affordable ways to get liability coverage. (You can check to see what you’d pay by getting a 60-second estimate here.)
