Self-Employed Insurance

Self-Employed Commercial Liability and Property Insurance

If you’re self-employed, having the appropriate self-employed insurance or home business insurance coverage is extremely important. Not having the right property and liability coverage could easily put you out of business if disaster strikes. Having access to affordable personal insurance products such as health insurance and life insurance is also vital.

At Amherst Insurance, we understand the special needs of the self-employed. We work closely with you to put in place a comprehensive solution to your insurance and financial planning needs. Contact our Business Insurance Specialist for access to the business insurance products that will put your mind at ease so you can focus on running your business, including:

  • Business Property Insurance – Either through a stand-alone policy or, in some cases, an endorsement on your homeowner’s insurance if your business is home-based, this insurance protects the important physical resources of your business.
  • Business Liability Insurance – Every business faces a liability risk. Having the right business liability insurance in place protects your hard work in creating your business. One lawsuit can potentially bankrupt a business.
  • Direct Sales Consultants
