What Does Commercial Property Insurance Cover?
Commercial property insurance is a critical business insurance portfolio benefit that will make certain that you can bounce back from any hazard that might suddenly arise, and which might prove exceptionally challenging.
A commercial property policy for small- to medium-sized enterprises can insure numerous commercial assets, including:
All office equipment including computers, phone systems and furniture (whether owned or leased)
Accounting records and other important company documents
The building your business is housed in (whether owned or rented)
Manufacturing or processing equipment
Exterior items such as fences, signs and satellite dishes

Additional Business Protection
Generally, you will have to purchase more coverage than just commercial property coverage in order to fully insure your entire operation. Policies that you will need alongside your property coverage include:
Commercial General Liability Insurance: Coverage protects you in case of at-fault accidents that cause property damage or bodily injuries for non-employees (I.e. customers).
Builder’s Risk Insurance: Protects materials or equipment from damage or loss sustained during construction or remodeling.
Equipment Breakdown Coverage: Keeps any electrical, electronic, or pressurized equipment on your premises insured from breakdowns or loss.

What is the Cost of Commercial Property Insurance?
Various factors will influence the cost of your property insurance. The most important will be the value of your business assets overall. After all, you need to make certain that your plan reflects the appropriate value of all your property.
Other factors considered when determining your risk for a commercial property insurance policy include:
Location: Are you in an area more prone to storms or other natural disasters? Is your building in a city or town with excellent fire protection or are you in a rural area with limited fire protection?
Construction: When was your building constructed? Was it constructed using fire-resistant materials? Does the building have new or upgraded electrical wiring? What about plumbing and HVAC?
Occupancy: Are you in your own stand-alone building or do you share a building with multiple tenants? What type of industry are you in? An office building carries less risk than a restaurant.
Security Features: How close is the nearest fire station? Is a fire hydrant located close to your building? Do you have a fire alarm and sprinkler system? Does your business have a security system?
