  • Business Insurance
    We all strive to be at our very best at every possible moment to fulfill our own individual obligations and meet the needs of those around us. Yet there will be times when factors outside of our control present risks. Perhaps in no other facet of life is this more true than in business. As a small business owner, your effort in building your company needs to be protected by a sound insurance plan. We at Vavas Insurance & Financial Services would be happy to provide you with that.

    Thanks to our association with Nationwide, all of the core coverage elements needed to build the right business insurance policy in Staten Island are right at your fingertips. You can start with basic options such as commercial property and business liability insurance, and then supplement that with business auto coverage. Then, depending upon the unique aspects of your company, you can choose to add extra coverage such as crime insurance, cyber liability protection, workers' compensation, and added financial security through accounts receivable and business interruption insurance. Not sure how much insurance you'll need? Choose instead to go with a businessowners policy, which offers a wide range of coverages designed to provide a convenient package.

    Building the ideal small business insurance plan can be easy if you have the right help in doing it. James D Vavas is here to help. We look forward to discussing all of the business insurance benefits that Nationwide has to offer. To learn more about covering your company through Nationwide, stop by and speak to us at our office on 47 New Dorp Plaza, or call and schedule an appointment at (718) 667-6660.
