General liability insurance

Lawsuits following slips, trips, and falls are a significant threat to your bottom line and reputation. Liability insurance can help you protect your business if someone is injured at your location, or if you sell a product that is defective and causes injury or property damage. It can also include cyber liability coverage to help protect against losses if your customer data and financial records are compromised.

Commercial auto insurance

Deliveries and transporting equipment are typical day-to-day activities for horticultural businesses. If your employees get into an accident during work-related activities, your business can be sued for damages. Commercial auto insurance can help cover losses related to accidents that happen when you're using a vehicle for your business.
