  • Business Insurance
    As a small business owner, you may have already purchased property insurance and general liability insurance, but did you know you could be protecting your assets even further? Nationwide, in conjunction with Nationwide Insurance: Bowers & Associates Insurance Services, provides a wide variety of specialized business insurance policies to benefit many types of businesses.

    Are you wondering what more you could need? Many business owners choose to add an umbrella policy to their coverage. Sometimes something occurs that the main policy cannot cover in full. If this happens, umbrella insurance acts as additional protection for a liability claim. Others opt to add income loss coverage and use it to pay bills and employees if they ever experience a business interruption. Depending on the type of business you run, you may be required to carry workers' compensation insurance in case an employee becomes injured on the job. Equipment breakdown policies, crime insurance policies, and cyber liability policies are all popular as well. If you are feeling overwhelmed by all the options, don't worry. Our experienced agent, Edward Holmes Rowe, can help you determine which policies would work well for your company. Together, we will come up with a package that protects you at a budget you can afford.

    If you run a small business in Oakland, Nationwide and Nationwide Insurance: Bowers & Associates Insurance Services are ready and willing to help you. To learn more about which small business policies are right for you, call us at (925) 407-2118 or stop into our offices at 6114 La Salle Ave.

    Nationwide offers small business resources to help you strengthen your business, such as financial calculators and information and articles on marketing and cash flow management. Learn more at the Business Solutions Center.
