Protect your business and property

Your business rests on your workspace, people and operations. That’s why Northbridge makes property and liability coverage a top priority. 

Property: Protects your business property, including buildings, any equipment (including computers and electronics), fixtures and furnishings, and inventory and supplies.

General liability: Covers injuries to your customers, suppliers or visitors to your business’ property. It also covers staff conducting business off-site that causes injury to a third party or its property. 

Business interruption: Reimburses you for lost net profits and other expenses required to help your business carry on until it’s up and running again after an insured loss.

Auto Coverage for non-owned vehicles: Protection for when your business is sued for bodily injury or property damage caused by a rented or borrowed vehicle. 

And, because each industry faces unique risks and demands, Northbridge offers additional coverage designed to fit your business and help you overcome some common roadblocks.

Commercial auto insurance: If your company owns vehicles that are driven by yourself or your staff as part of the day-to-day business, you’ll want to make sure you have the right protection in place.

Product liability: This coverage protects you if a product you manufacture or sell turns out to be defective, or if there are inaccuracies in assembly instructions or warnings.

Professional liability: If a customer claims you failed to deliver on what was outlined in a contract or that you mismanaged a project, professional liability coverage can help cover legal costs and expenses. 

Coverage for Contractors: Special protection for your expensive tools, equipment and installation materials against loss or damage from causes like theft, fire and vandalism. 

Flexibility you deserve

Get added peace of mind, with flexible features built into your insurance policy.

Flexible payment options: You get 0% interest and the ability to pay all at once, monthly or in installments using a variety of payment methods, including credit card.

No penalties: Revise coverage as your needs change. If you need to cancel the policy, you only pay for coverage up to the cancellation date.

24/7 claims service: Our experts understand your industry and business, so they can get you back to work quickly and make settlements easy and stress-free when it matters most.
