Saskatoon Home Based Business Insurance

Get a Quote

If you have a home-based business in Saskatoon, you are part of a growing, national entrepreneurial wave. According to Home Business Magazine, “micro-enterprises (firms with 1 to 4 employees) account for 54.1% of all private employers across the country, and most of these are home-based businesses.” More and more people are opting to hang out a shingle from their home – businesses ranging from consultants and copywriters to masseuses and personal trainers.

Establishing your business in your home can make for a more comfortable, stress-free environment. With all the technology options available today, setting up shop at home allows you to avoid the commute, the parking, and the cost of rental space. It’s a cost-effective and environmentally friendly way to do business. But don’t relax too much. Just because you’re doing business in a comfortable and familiar environment, it doesn’t mean you aren’t subject to the same risks that any business might face. Do you have enough insurance coverage should an unexpected loss occur?

Do I need Home-Based Business Insurance in Saskatoon?

Do you operate a business from your home? While business insurance is not mandatory by law, it can be an essential investment to protect your important business assets and operations. Essentially, Home-Based Business Insurance is coverage that protects you when operating a business from your personal residence.

Doesn’t my home insurance policy offer enough coverage for my home-based business?

One unfortunate mistake that many home-based business owners make is assuming that their home insurance would cover them if a loss were to occur. Typically, that is not the case. While every home insurance policy varies in coverage details, most policies exclude losses of a business nature. Home insurance covers your personal assets; Home business insurance covers losses related to business activities. Your home insurance liability would not cover one of your greatest sources of potential loss – business-related liability claims.

What are the risks that Home Business Insurance would cover?

Home Business Insurance can offer coverage for an array of potential events that could result in losses. Such events might include fire, equipment breakdowns, theft, damaged inventory, cyberattacks, or a delivery person who suffers an injury from a fall in your driveway. Liability is one of the greatest risks facing your home business. Other risks might be related to the nature of your business. Do customers visit your business? Do you have employees? Do you store credit card numbers or other personal or business data for your clients? These all pose risks.

What type of insurance do I need to protect my home-based business?

Home Business Insurance or Home-Based Business Insurance are policies specifically designed to cover losses for small business operating from home. They are pretty much like any other small business insurance in offering protection against potential business losses that might otherwise require you to pay out of pocket. That might be fine when it comes to small losses, but the cost of defense in a lawsuit or stolen inventory and equipment can be very costly and potentially ruinous. Personal liability on your home insurance policy would not cover business-related suits.

Depending on the nature of your business, there are various options we can suggest to guard against potential losses. For some businesses, an endorsement on your home insurance policy might suffice. But most frequently, we would recommend a Home Business Insurance package to cover equipment, stock, business interruption, legal expenses, and liability exposures. There are other coverages that you may want to add on, such as business vehicle Insurance or cyber liability coverage, for example.
