What type of small business insurance do I need?

The kinds of commercial insurance coverage you need depend on the kind of business you have. For example, a tree removal service working with potentially dangerous equipment would have different risks and needs than a freelance web designer. Another factor to consider is where your business is located. It's important to talk to an agent about your business before you purchase to help make sure you have coverage that meets your specific needs.
