What is Business Personal Property Insurance?
Business Personal Property (BPP) coverage is the most basic property coverage offered for businesses and organizations. Similar to Personal Property coverage in a Homeowner's policy, Business Personal Property covers nearly all items of value that aren't considered a structure, fixture, automobile, watercraft, or aircraft. This would include items such as desks, chairs, tools, equipment, appliances, furniture, etc.
Who needs business personal property insurance?
Anyone who rents a physical space
Has any business equipment such as computers, printers and furniture
May be required by your landlord to business interruption coverage (usually required in all lease/rental contracts)
Has a lot of data stored
There are many ways to broaden the coverage provided by BPP coverage. Below are some of the most common coverages that are similar and/or intertwined with BPP:
Electronic Data Processing (EDP): This coverage would insure computers and other electronic devices that transmit and process data. Depending on the language used in the policy, these items might not be covered or might be subject to a sub-limit.
Inland Marine: BPP coverage only applies for the locations listed on the policy. To have coverage for BPP items when they're away from the insured locations, an Inland Marine policy would be required. Many different versions of Inland Marine exist, and they are used to provide specialized coverage.
Tenant's Improvements & Betterments: When a business rents the space they use, discrepancies might occur when determining if items are part of the structure or part of the tenant's BPP. This endorsement clarifies which items are covered by BPP.
Stock: Stock, as in inventory or wares held for sale, is not normally covered by BPP. However, endorsements are available to add coverage for stock. Most commonly, the stock would be added to the overall BPP limit.
Physical property owned by the business, such as office equipment
Electronic data processing
