What type of commercial insurance is right for my small business

Having a small business takes a lot of time and energy. It causes a lot of stress, and you may feel overwhelmed when it comes to choosing commercial insurance. No two policies should be the same, your business is not exactly like anyone else’s, and your needs may differ. Knowing which components are right for you can save you money and make sure that you are protected. The O’Donnell Agency LLC in New Jersey is an independent agency that can offer reliable policies from the top carriers at prices that make sense for your business. 

Most commercial insurance is optional, but in New Jersey, two types are required by law, workers’ compensation and commercial auto insurance.

Workers’ Compensation

New Jersey employers are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance for full and part-time employees. All that’s needed is one or more employees. This provides a worker who is injured on the job or while performing work duties medical coverage for injures and lost time and even death benefits. 

Commercial Auto Insurance

If your business owns even one auto, you need to have commercial auto insurance. Keeping your vehicle separate from your business is always a good idea to avoid entanglement. 

Business liability

No business is safe from the danger of a suit being filed against you. Liability insurance helps to pay for expenses associated with legal action against you and will pay the judgment up to the limit of your policy. If someone is injured at your business location or by one of your products, they may decide to sue. Even if they don’t sue, you may be liable for medical expenses. This insurance offers valuable protection. 

These are just three components of a commercial insurance policy. There may be others that would be a good fit for your business. Talking to an insurance agency like O’Donnell Agency LLC can answer any concerns that you have about coverage. Give our office a call or stop by for a free quote.

What is a home inventory and why do I need one

Owning a home is part of the American dream; don’t let it become your nightmare. Many things can happen to damage your home, and most of them are beyond your control. Nobody enjoys filing an insurance claim, but chances are pretty good at some point you will file a claim on your home insurance policy. Having an A+ carrier and an insurance agent who will be there for you through good times and bad makes facing the bad times easier. O’Donnell Agency LLC offers the residents of New Jersey top-notch carriers and their years of experience. 

When you file a claim to be reimbursed for your personal property, a home inventory can make the process much more relaxed. It will provide the proof your carrier needs to move ahead on your claim. A home inventory is a list of all the items that you own. It should include the value of the items and any receipts that you may have. The more detailed the inventory, the better. You may do it with a pad and a pen, or you may use a camera or your cellphone to document everything. 

A home inventory includes the content of your closets, drawers, cupboards, basement, garage, and attic. You will have the best outcome with your claim if you have documented as much as possible, including brand names, models, or serial numbers. Your inventory needs to be kept up to date as the items you possess changes. Your inventory can be helpful not only when filing a claim, but when deciding on a home policy. Please bring it with you when you talk to your agent.  

O’Donnell Agency LLC is there to help the residents of New Jersey. The team members have years of experience helping customers to get the coverage that is right for them. Come in and talk to a member of our staff or give us a call for a no-obligation quote.
