“Do I Really Need Insurance for My Gift Basket Business?”

by Shirley George Frazier on May 20, 2009

basketsWhy is insurance one of the most-baffling parts of your business? It’s likely due to one of these reasons.

1. I don’t know where to get insurance.

2. I don’t know how much insurance to get.

3. Do I really need insurance if I’m buying pre-packaged foods?

I’m sure insurance companies would be very pleased if, when you registered your business with the proper officials, you were also required to show proof of insurance for that business, similar to when buying a house or vehicle.

The last time I bought a car, the dealer called my insurance company as I sat at his desk for proof that I had insurance before I drove off the lot. If I was purchasing a business, chances are I could not start selling gift baskets unless I had coverage.

Hopefully, such a scenario will not become a reality, but if your business is not protected by insurance, don’t you also hope that nothing will ever happen that proves it would have been better to buy it?
