“Business insurance costs HOW MUCH?!”
You might say that if you didn’t have these tips to save you money. (Okay, you might still say that, but you’ll maybe have less of a heart attack). So, let’s save you some money!
How to save money on business insurance costs.
1. Choose a higher deductible.
“Wait, I’m supposed to save money by spending more money?” Stay with us!
Your deductibles and your premiums balance each other out. The more you can pay in an emergency, the less your monthly payments will be. So, if you’re super sure you won’t file hefty claims, raise that deductible.
2. Get a BOP.
Close your Spotify. Don’t press play on that Hanson song. We’re talking about a Business Owner’s Policy. Basically, most insurance carriers smash all the basic business insurance policies you need into one MEGA policy and made the price lower than buying each of the policies individually. So, get one of those first and foremost.
3. Choose your agent wisely.
Get an agent that works for you, not against you. One that listens and will tell you what’s going on – for better or for worse. They can help you with your general liability, workers’ comp, and so on.I don't like forms. Let's do this in live chat
4. Be honest with your agent.
“But I don’t want to share all of this information. Maybe I can just lie a little–” No. No. No. The only difference between your insurance agent, your lawyer, and your accountant is…nothing. They all need the same info to save you time and money in the long run.
5. Ask how you can…not file claims to lower business insurance costs.
Fewer claims equal less money that your insurance has to pay. So, they may already have some tips on how you lower your risks, your claims, and your rates. And all of that can help you lower your business insurance costs.
6. Shop around.
