Why Choose AmTrust for Commercial Property insurance?
As an industry leader in small business insurance, we understand how important it is to make sure you are covered. We know that small businesses can be devastated by a workplace injury or a data breach. The same applies for your business property as well. A natural disaster, fire or theft can bring your operation to a halt.
Our dedicated team of professionals is ready to customize a product to fit your needs.
Why do I need Commercial Property insurance?
Commercial Property insurance is crucial for your small business. It protects your building, contents, business income and rental income from commonly experienced losses that include fire, explosion, pipe bursts, storms, theft, vandalism, and flood and earthquake (when this type of coverage has been added to the policy). Commercial Property coverage helps you pay for these types of losses, replaces lost income and helps get your business back to normal.
What does a Commercial Property insurance policy cover?
After a physical loss or damage occurs, Commercial Property insurance protects your building, contents as well as any resulting impact to your business income. For example, it can reimburse you for the cost incurred to replace stolen goods, the repairs resulting from the damage to destroyed property and equipment, the lost income that results and extra expenses needed to get your business back to normal.
If your business property falls victim to a fire, theft or destruction from a natural disaster, Commercial Property insurance protects you against the cost to repair your building, its contents and the loss of income that results in shutting down operations due to a covered event.
We offer also domestic property and business income insurance that includes equipment breakdown coverage.
