Small Business Insurance in South Gate, Bellflower, and Van Nuys, CA

Your small businesses needs many types of coverage in order to adequately secure itself against losses in the event of certain common business casualties. Common elements of small business insurance include:

  • General Liability Insurance: This policy covers a business against claims arising from problems like libel, slander, medical expenses, property damage, medical expenses, and the cost of defending against a lawsuit.
  • Product Liability Insurance: If you deal with a product - whether it's manufacturing, retailing, wholesaling, or just distributing it - you may be responsible for keeping it (and people in the area around it) safe. The amount required depends mainly on the products involved - the larger and/or heavier the products are, the more coverage is needed.
  • Professional Liability Insurance: Similarly, if you provide any kind of professional service, you may need coverage for errors, malpractice, and negligence. Some companies are required to have this type of coverage (especially, though not exclusively, those in the medical field).
  • Commercial Property Insurance: If your small business owns any kind of physical property (an office, a retail store, a warehouse, etc.), this coverage insures it against a wide variety of natural and man-made forms of damage. If your business is particularly vulnerable to a certain type of damage (flooding, vandalism, etc.), you may need additional coverage for that specific problem.
  • Home-Based Insurance: If you're running a business from your home, then your homeowner's insurance probably doesn't cover any of your business operations. You may need to purchase additional coverage separately, or as an extension of your existing plan. Speak to a ANA Insurance Brokerage, Inc. agents to find out.

Many other industry-specific forms of coverage are available. For more information about what policies are the most important for your business, talk to one of our agents and ask for a full risk assessment. You can research forms of insurance through reputable sources—this information is available for free online, courtesy of groups like the National Association of Insurance Commissioners.

Insurance Requirements for Small Business

All small businesses are required to have Workers' Compensation, Unemployment Insurance, and sometimes Disability Insurance. Other requirements for small business insurance vary by industry, as well as local, state, and federal law.

What constitutes a small business?

The exact definition of a small business varies by industry, but according to the Small Business Administration, it's usually 500 employees or less for mining or manufacturing, and $7.5 million or less in revenue for other industries. Note that there are many exceptions to this rule, and they are listed in detail on the Small Business Administration's website.

Testimonials

My mother was the first to use Ana Insurance and she always had a great experience and saved a LOT of money. So when I bought my car she suggested that I go to Ana's, too, and I have saved a lot of money, myself, as well as enjoying the personal touches that Freddy and Corin have always provided. I will never go anywhere else for insurance.

Switched from other broker of Mercury Insurance to come to ANA. They have a very friendly yet extremely professional environment and I see them like family. Truly the best decision I ever made!

B. Abrams

R. Reyes
Great insurance, love this place. I had insurance with this company before but had to change it because it got too expensive. I ended up with Freeway Insurance and regretted it later because of several problems. The biggest one was that they lied to me by saying that my payment came back with insufficient funds and had to get a bank statement to prove otherwise. Never had this problem before with ANA and I doubt I ever will. Alex was my agent and he did a great job in finding a good deal.
