  • Business Insurance
    Finding peace of mind as a small business owner means being prepared for challenges your company might face as it grows. A good way to do that is by having a broad risk management plan and updating it after each new growth phase adds to the complexity of your operations. The Nationwide Insurance: Global Underwriters Agency Inc. works with Nationwide to make this easier by providing the kind of robust and customizable insurance that has already serviced over 500,000 small businesses.

    To get the process started, Richard J Pufpaff may recommend purchasing a business owner's policy. This provides basic coverage along a variety of lines and represents the closest thing that business insurance has to a comprehensive policy. From there, agents conduct an On Your Side® Review to find specific areas where your company could use a little more coverage, and these vary quite a bit from business to business. Examples include insurance on your receivables, on equipment and other specific high-value assets, product liability, and basic property insurances.

    Finding the right coverage for a small business in Ballston Lake is a process, but it is a process that Richard J Pufpaff has the experience to guide you through. That way, you have the security you need to take advantage of every new business opportunity. To get things started, call (518) 877-8623 for a phone consultation or to set an appointment for a meeting at our offices located on 315 Ushers Rd.

    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.
The Global Underwriters Agency Inc. also offers products in CT, NY, PA, NJ. Please call for information on products in those states.
