Because most startups have very little business property compared to larger companies, it’s common to bundle BP coverage with General Liability into a Business Owner’s Policy (“BOP”).
In fact, at Vouch, we only sell startups BP coverage as part of a BOP bundle, because it’s so rare that a startup has enough property to justify a standalone policy.
Whenever a loss of your company property would cause a disruption to your business.
Here’s the thing: laptops are expensive. The last thing you want is for a couple of company laptops to be swiped the week you’re scheduled to present to potential investors – and be worried that you won’t be able to replace them in time.
With Vouch’s Business Property coverage, you can replace your machine that day and be reimbursed shortly thereafter.

No other insurance coverage protects your startup’s property. For example:
If you’re operating from a home office, your homeowner’s or renter’s policy doesn’t cover it.
If you're in a coworking space, the coworking company’s insurance doesn’t cover it.
If you’re renting your own office space, the landlord’s insurance doesn’t cover it.
If you want to receive funds to replace or repair business equipment that gets damaged, you’ve got to have BP coverage.
If you want to work with a company that makes insurance founder-friendly, get your policy through Vouch.
Business Property insurance can cover the cost of repairing or replacing business property owned by your startup when it’s damaged by “covered events.” In a typical Business Property policy, covered events include but are not limited to…
Fire and smoke
Water damage originating indoors (burst pipes, sprinklers, etc.)
But we always recommend checking your policy to confirm what it covers and excludes.
If your product or service is responsible for damaging the property of a third party, your General Liability policy may be able to cover the costs of repairing or replacing that property. Note that in order to make a claim, the value of the damaged property would likely need to be greater than your policy’s deductible.
Your BP policy won’t cover damage caused by events that aren’t covered. Usually, that means floods, earthquakes, sinkholes, mudslides, wars, nuclear damage, and failure at a utility company.
Another important note: normal wear and tear isn’t covered by BP insurance. You’re responsible for keeping your business property in good working order and replacing it when it wears out.
Oh, and if you rent a car, that’s not considered business property and therefore won't be covered by this insurance. Instead, look for a Hired and Non-Owned Auto policy.
