What info is needed for a commercial business insurance quote?
The information you need to provide depends on the specific type of insurance product you need. This is because each insurance product covers different risks. As a result, the needed information to get a quote differs dramatically from product to product. Below are some examples of typical pieces of information you’ll need in order to get a commercial insurance quote:
- Name of the organization or person that is applying for commercial insurance. If you operate under a business name but aren’t incorporated you’ll need to provide your doing business as a name and first and last name.
- Full mailing address. Note that it can’t be a P.O. Box as insurers need to be able to send registered letters if needed.
- Description of operations. For example, a list of all products sold, a list of all services provided, etc.
- Projected annual revenue
- Insurance product(s) that you are interested in
- Experience or expertise in the business, industry, etc.
