Commercial Umbrella Insurance
Commercial umbrella insurance adds an extra layer of protection against liability claims when you have exhausted your other liability limit. In short, your commercial umbrella insurance and your other liability policy go together and the umbrella portion will kick in once you have used up your other liability coverage limit. Therefore, commercial umbrella insurance is not a stand alone policy. You don’t have to spend a fortune for your umbrella. With the help of our experienced agents, your umbrella policy with $1 million in coverage can cost you as little as a couple hundred dollars extra on top of your regular business liability insurance.
