Tailor your policy to fit your needs

Gold

Automatically added to your businessowners policy at no additional cost, the Gold series offers more than 30 special coverages that are tailored to help your small business grow. Your rep will go through your choices with you. 

Platinum

Available at an additional cost, the Platinum series provides everything available in Gold, plus higher limits and several supplementary coverages. 

We’ll get to know your unique business needs and go through your choices with you. Choose how your property will be valued in case of loss:

  • Actual cash value is coverage for the current value of your buildings (replacement cost minus depreciation for age and wear). The newer your buildings, the more coverage you’ll have.
  • Replacement cost allows you to replace your damaged or destroyed building at today’s prices, subject to the limits on your policy. Your business personal property will also be insured on a replacement cost basis.
