Although it is not required for owner-only businesses, it is important for the owners to make sure that their individual health care plan will provide coverage if they are injured on the job. Our agents will research many markets to make sure that you are provided with the lowest premiums for your business.

Businesses that sell, service, repair, park, or store automobiles will need Garage Liability Coverage to cover risks that would not be covered under a business auto policy alone. Auto, truck, motorcycle, and mobile-home dealers, repair facilities, service stations, car washes, and parking facilities need to have garage liability coverage. This insurance policy provides coverage for loss or damage to customer's automobiles. Dealer’s physical damage can insure vehicles in stock for the perils of collision, fire, and theft.

Errors and Omissions -                                                                                                                      REQUEST A QUOTE

Liability insurance for professionals is different than that needed for contractors. A professional such as an engineer, architect, insurance agent, real estate agent, etc. will need to have coverage to protect any error or omissions they may make. This mistake can cause financial harm to another and can occur on almost any transaction in any profession. An E&O policy will help protect a professional individual or a company from bearing the full cost of defense for lawsuits relating to an error or omission.

Bonds -                                                                                                                                               REQUEST A QUOTE

Surety bonds guarantee that specific obligations will be fulfilled, such as meeting a contractual commitment, paying a debt, or performing certain duties. Usually, a bond is written for a definite amount, which is known as the bond penalty.

Each bond is a written contract between three parties. Two of the parties obligate themselves to meet a commitment to the third party. If the commitment is not met, a sum of money, up to but not exceeding the full penalty, becomes payable as damages. On every bond, the parties are the principal, an obligee, and a guarantor or surety. The "Principal" is the party who has agreed to fulfill the obligation, which is the subject of the bond. The "Obligee" is the party for whose benefit the bond is written. If the Principal defaults on the obligation, damages are payable to the Obligee. The "Guarantor or surety" is the company providing the bond for a fee. The surety joins with the principal in guaranteeing fulfillment of the obligation, and agrees to pay damages if the principal defaults.

There are many different types of bonds, as follows:

License and Permit Bonds
Many local, state, and federal laws require that a bond be furnished before someone can obtain a license or permit to engage in a particular activity. The bonds are designed to guarantee that laws and regulations of a particular business or activity are followed. 

Contract Bonds
Contract bonds are issued to guarantee performance of the terms and provisions of written contracts. The principals on these are usually construction contractors.

Performance Bonds
A performance bond guarantees the owner (obligee) that the contractor (principal) will complete the original contract as drawn. If the contractor fails to complete the work, the surety may at its own expense engage another contractor to complete the work.

Financial Guarantee Bonds
These guarantee payment of money. A strong financial statement in relation to the penalty of the bond is required.

Payment Bonds
Payment bonds, which are also known as "Labor and Material Bonds," guarantee that a principal will complete and deliver the work free and clear of liens or encumbrances.

Supply bonds
A supply bond will guarantee that a supplier will faithfully furnish supplies, materials, finished products, or equipment according to the terms of a supply contract.
