Is Your Business Owners Policy Enough?

Concerned your Business Owners Policy might not provide you with the coverage you need? At Nieroda Insurance Agency in Saint Charles, MO, we can help you make sure you have the policy that will meet those needs.


Generally, a Business Owners Policy is very inclusive. It is typically the right fit for many businesses. However, even these inclusive policies have exclusions. It’s important to go over the coverage, carefully, with your agent to make sure there are no surprises down the road.

You don’t want to have an incident later on, or a loss, and find out your insurance doesn’t cover that type of incident or loss.


Some of the exclusions in Business Owners Policies include:

  • Commercial Fleet Insurance: You’ll need a separate policy to cover your fleet of vehicles. These are expensive assets, so it’s important to know they won’t be covered. Other vehicles the business owns may not be included either, so make sure to check. Ask your agent what additional coverage you’ll need.
  • Mechanical Equipment Breakdown Insurance: This insurance, which covers the repair or replacement of equipment and some revenue loss, is typically not included.
  • Disaster Coverage: Make sure to see if your Business Owners Policy covers natural disasters. See if debris removal or flood insurance is included, and what the limits are. These may be additional policies you’ll want to add.

Make sure to read the fine print on your commercial insurance policy. Business Owner Policies work well for many types of small businesses, but it is important to understand what they cover, and what they don’t.
