Commercial Real Estate Insurance in San Francisco CA & Oakland CA

Commercial real estate insurance protects you from losses caused by damage to property assets. Most businesses are vulnerable to the same threats as every other building—fire, flooding, vandalism, or even being struck by a vehicle that goes out of control. Many of these problems are something that cannot be reasonably prevented, making them eligible for coverage that can help repair the building or allow your company to move to a new location.

Commercial Real Estate Insurance Features

As the owner of a business, you know how difficult it is to run a smooth operation. The last thing you need is a disaster that damages your workplace so badly that you can no longer continue operating. Commercial real estate insurance makes the crisis something you can handle. Before you start shopping, though, here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • The first thing you should do is take stock of the company's physical assets. This includes your building, any paper records, inventory, office equipment, signs located outside, and anything else that qualifies as a physical asset.
  • You may not need to insure everything the business owns. If you decide something is not worth insuring, removing it from your policy could lower your monthly premiums and make it easier to insure what truly matters.
  • Most policies cover either the replacement cost (RC) or the actual cash value (ACV) of the insured items. Policies that include replacement cost are more expensive, but allow for full replacement without calculating any depreciation. Actual cash value policies consider the loss of value over time, and factor this difference in to any claims on the policy.

If you're not sure which policy options make the most sense for your company, ask one of our agents for more information and they'll help you make a decision.

Testimonials

Thank you to Christine who went above & beyond to lend a helping hand by providing us with quotes for our food truck business (which is a fairly new category to cover in the insurance world, I'm told). She was super patient with all of our questions, was prompt in communication, and is an all-around wonderful gal! Aside from our small business, I trust her to take care of my personal assets too

I've used the Irene Herman Insurance for a few of my insurance needs! They helped me find health insurance when I was down and out and had pre-existing conditions (before Obamacare came along), and we worked long and hard to find a policy that would work for me. Also, they helped me find a better deal for my home insurance, and they're there when I need help to look for better car insurance rates. They're constantly on the look out for me and let me know if I can ever find better rates with another company, so I know they're on my side. It's a small family business, and they're good, kind people. I'm happy to work with cool people like this.

For the past year, Irene Herman Insurance Services has helped me and my business with a variety of insurance needs. They have consistently provided excellent and prompt service. I discovered Irene Herman Insurance via a website (don't remember which one) to request quotes for w/c, general and professional liability insurance for my business. I was contacted right away by Geoff Herman. Geoff was a huge help in helping us obtain the insurance we needed for a contract with the City of LA at a reasonable price. This was no small feat - we knew of a similar business that was having a hard time getting the E & O insurance. (We recommended them to Geoff and he helped them out, too.) Geoff also helped us with changing our medical and dental insurance for our business. For our personal insurance needs, Geoff helped us obtain life insurance and Iris Htwe assisted us with renters insurance. They are always available to answer questions and they respond very quickly to my emails. We've relied on Irene Herman Insurance Services for a number of different insurance needs over the past year and it has put my mind at ease to have them on my team.

I am not the type to write reviews but Geoff's service has been so amazing during a recent emergency situation that I decided to take a minute and offer my praise. Geoff's service has been excellent from the beginning. Promptly returns phone calls, excellent pricing, excellent knowledge of the industry, calm during a crisis, and a nice guy as well. And when the crap hit the fan recently, he went the extra mile repeatedly
