Business Auto Insurance

Commercial Auto is similar to personal auto coverage but is intended for vehicles used in the course of business.

For example, an employee is making a delivery in a company owned vehicle, backs up and dents another vehicle in a parking lot. The property damage portion of the policy would pay for the damages to the other vehicle.

Commercial General Liability

Liability coverage covers what you could be obligated to pay due to bodily injury or property damage to others.

If you do not own your building, your landlord may require being added as an additional insured on the policy in order to protect his or her interests. Liability covers the premises and operations of the insured, as well as products and completed operations.

Northern Insuring can help write Liability policies for:

  • Commercial General
  • Professional
  • Fiduciary

Commercial Property Insurance

Property insurance covers the buildings, contents and business income/extra expenses of your business. Depending on your needs, you may also want to consider coverage for outdoor signs, glass, crime, or property of others, etc.

The two most common types of crime coverage are Employee Dishonesty and Theft, Disappearance & Destruction.

Dishonesty coverage is reimbursement for financial loss as a result of any dishonest or fraudulent act by an employee involving embezzlement of money or property, including inventory, owned by you.

Theft, Disappearance & Destruction coverage is reimbursement for loss of money and securities not caused by an employee.

Crime insurance options include:

  • Employee Dishonesty
  • ERISA
  • Bonds

Landlord’s Insurance

Landlord’s insurance is a policy to protect you as a property owner from financial losses connected with your rental properties.

The coverage is on the building itself, with an option to cover contents. It could also cover loss of rent income in the event of fire, lightning, explosion, theft, or malicious damage. In the event of a loss, Landlord’s Insurance may also enable you to repair or replace, or get actual cash value for your building, depending on its age. In addition to the property coverage, the liability portion of your Landlord’s insurance provides protection against occurrences such as those related to trip and fall hazards.
