When operating a pet store, getting business insurance coverage to protect your store should be top priority.
General liability insurance protects your business from financial strife of customer's legal or medical costs for injuries while on your business’s property. This will cover your legal defense and the costs associated with the loss if you are found liable, up to your policy limits.
Property damage, whether it is from fire, extreme weather conditions, or natural disasters, flood from severe rainstorm, property insurance would cover the cost of repairing or replacing your business-related property including structural damage to your building and the business materials you store there.
Workers compensation insurance is required by law in most states of the US. If an employee is injured in a work related accident, workers compensation will pay for their medical care and recovery expenses. Your business will also not be responsible for the damages or sued by your employee.
Professional liability insurance, also referred to as Errors and Omissions insurance, covers lawsuits related to your work, product or service. This insurance provides coverage in the event that a business is held legally liable for damages which are cause by your product, improper advice or negligence.
This provides coverage for the client's pets and client's personal property in your care, custody or control. It also covers pets while in transport in a vehicle, pet taxi or other means. This coverage covers all independent contractors, employees and volunteers.
Vehicle used for business operation such as sending pets to client’s homes or picking up pets should be covered by business auto insurance. Business auto insurance provides coverage against accidents, theft, or vandalism while using your vehicle for business purposes.
Owning a pet store and pet supply establishment is similar to owning a retail store. One key difference is that you work with live animals in addition to the supply products. This means you have the added responsibility of caring for your inventory as well as keeping your employees and customers happy. While rewarding, owning a pet store can have its share of pitfalls as well. Protect your company and all parties involved by making sure you have the right coverage option.
