Virginia Farm Bureau insurance can help business owners simplify, save and get back to business.
A Businessowner Policy offers packaged business insurance coverage without the need for multiple policies. Businessowner Policies or BOPs, combine property coverage, liability and business income into one flexible package that can be customized to cover the needs of small to mid-size businesses.
The total cost of a BOP is often lower than having individual policies.
“The new Businessowner Policy rolled out Jan. 1 and replaced the old (product), which was over 25 years old,” explained Lisa Whitus, personal and commercial lines underwriting manager for Virginia Farm Bureau Mutual Insurance Co. “The new policy is much more robust. It’s a really customizable new product and allows us to be able to compete in the marketplace for pricing and coverages.”
BOP can provide coverage for hospitality, community nonprofit, offices, corner markets, personal services, retail, or specialty contractor businesses.
“BOP provides extensive coverage for today’s business needs,” Whitus added. “It’s really a comprehensive, flexible product.”
The new BOP can accommodate general business upgrades and offers installment plans and may include multiple discounts, including claims-free, loyalty and multiple policy discounts.
Additional coverages, offered in partnership with Hartford Steam Boiler, include:
