Home-based business are becoming rampant in today’s society. While you may enjoy working from the comfort of your home, you need to consider protecting your business from unforeseen contingencies. Having a homeowner’s insurance policy in Arizona does not guarantee you protection because the policy is not designed to cover business activity.
Therefore, if you operate a business out of your home, you need to ask yourself the following important questions:
• Do I get visits from customers to my home?
• Would I lose my source of income if I had to close my business because of damage to my home?
• Do I preserve client or employee records on my computer?
• Do I maintain inventory or supplies in my premise or at off-site job locations?
• Do I have employees working from my home?
If the answers to these questions are positive, then consider a homeowner’s policy from Shaner Insurance Group, Inc. Arizona. With the appropriate coverage, your business could be financially accountable for any damage in terms of employee injuries, data loss, lawsuits and property damage.
