How Much Does Business Insurance Cost?
The Cost Of Business Insurance Depends On The Following
When insuring a business it is going to be influenced by the following factors.
TYPE – The first likely question to know “How much business insurance will be for your business” is “What do you do?” The type of business you are in is going to dictate the amount of risks you are exposed to. A Hallmark card printing company is exposed to much less risk than a dynamite manufacturing center.
PAYROLL – Understanding a company’s payroll, revenue, and assets create a fuller picture of their business insurance needs. Payroll can help insurance companies gauge the size of the company properly and how much business insurance coverage their company needs.
SALES – Business insurance premiums are largely a factor on revenue as the insurance company sees a greater amount of exposure directly proportional to greater revenue. A business selling 2,000 items a year faces a far greater exposure than a company who only turns over a couple items per year, just because of more ‘at bats’.
AREA – The building being insured can affect how much your business insurance can cost. When seeking a business insurance quote be prepared to provide information on:
- The location of your business
- The square footage
- The year the building was built
- The type of construction
- The other tenants (if applicable)
- The occupancy rate
Those four factors will most affect how much business insurance will cost. With the previous information an insurance company can work to get you the cheapest business insurance rates possible in line with the coverage required.

Shocking, I know, but sometimes people just want to fire their insurance agent. It’s a sad realization that good insurance has become a rarity.
When an insurance policy holder wants to change insurance agents but keep the same carrier, they must provide the new agent with an Agent of Record letter. This grants the new agent legal authority to represent the policy holder with the same insurance carrier.
Most insurance carriers are legally bound not discuss a policy holder’s account with an insurance agent unless they are the agent of record. An Agent of Record letter gives the new agent rights to receive all communications on behalf of the policy holder.
Many people when shopping for the best insurance only use price as a factor of their decision. This is a very dangerous gauge of value.
Our Georgia insurance company believes you take many factors into consideration in attempt to find the best fit for you. Consider the following when shopping for insurance:
- Is the agent trustworthy?
- Is the agency personable?
- What level of care should you expect?
- What resources are available to you?
- What does the claims process look like?
Ask your prospective insurance agent these questions and learn what is the option fit for you.
From our insurance agent’s experience relationships make all the difference. Be sure you consider your relationship when choosing an insurance agent.
With anything, we feel most confident on our decision when we are most educated. Our agents want to help you understand your insurance needs and coverage options. You can shop your insurance on your own to learn what options exist or you can ask one of our agents to shop over 30 insurance carriers and return to you the results.
You have to know and understand what you are comparing to be confident in the product you are buying. We aren’t able to write insurance with EVERY carrier available to you and we recommend you compare our offer to carriers we don’t write with. We will do everything possible to provide you with the best insurance available, and if you aren’t satisfied you can explore the options for yourself and put us to the test.
