What is Commercial Property Insurance?
Commercial property insurance protects your business’s building and its contents from various circumstances that may result in damage or loss. If these circumstances occur, your insurance policy may help you pay to replace or repair your building or other covered business assets.
What Does it Cover?
A standard commercial property insurance policy will typically cover the following items from damages caused by fires, storms, vandalism, theft, burglary, and similar events:
- Commercial buildings
- Fixtures (fencing, signage, etc.)
Policies typically do not cover normal wear and tear or natural disasters, like floods or earthquakes.
Additional Coverage Options
Depending on the location of your property and the specific risks you face, you may consider adding additional coverages to your policy, such as:
- Flood insurance
- Earthquake insurance
- Business interruption insurance
- Inland marine insurance
We’ll work with you to go over all of your options so you can create a customized policy that meets your needs.
Commercial Property Insurance FAQs
Still have questions? Here are our answers to the most common questions we get about commercial property insurance in Miami, FL, Pembroke Pines, and the surrounding areas:
How much does commercial property insurance cost?
The cost of commercial property insurance varies depending on several factors, including:
- Coverage limits

- Fire protection measures
- Theft protection measures
Your insurance agent can help you understand how your cost was determined and how you may be able to lower it.
What if I don’t own the building?
If you don’t own your business’s building, you should still get property insurance. While your landlord may have their own property insurance policy, it likely won’t cover your business assets. Your lease agreement may also require you to have your own insurance policy.
Which parts of my property should I insure?
If you own a commercial building, you should insure:
- The building itself
- Manufacturing equipment
- Office equipment
- Accounting records
What’s the difference between replacement cost and actual cash value?
Insurers generally offer two types of policies: Replacement Cost or Actual Cash Value.
- Replacement cost policies pay to repair, replace, or rebuild business property with the same or comparable materials.
- Actual cash value policies pay to rebuild or replace the property minus depreciation.
