General Liability Insurance Home-Based Businesses
Most homeowners and renters policies do not cover liability or damage to property from business activities. Imagine having your inventory, tools or equipment stolen or damaged. Typical homeowners insurance does not cover this type of loss for people who run a small, side business out of their home. We are pleased to offer the perfect coverage for your in-home business that includes premises liability while at the site and meets the GL needs of most appraisers and home inspectors. Also available for non-home businesses. Click for more details. For more, call OREP (888) 347-5273.
