    Business insurance cost

    In 2023, the national median cost of business insurance for new Progressive customers ranged from $42 per month for professional liability to $67 per month for workers’ compensation.

    Your cost is based on various factors, including the industry you’re in and the specific types of jobs you do. For example, one landscaping company might only mow lawns, while another offers additional services, such as tree trimming. They’re both landscapers, but their risk exposure is different and will be reflected in their rates.

    Discover more factors that influence business insurance cost and what you can do to get the coverage you need at the best price.

    Customized coverage

    We offer customized coverage that matches your business’s level of exposure to certain risks. A customized policy includes the coverages you need, with limits that match your specific requirements. Customized coverage is flexible, so if your situation changes — or you simply change your mind — you can update your policy anytime.

    Be wary of “one-size-fits-all” policies. They can have gaps in coverage that leave you exposed. For example, you might assume general liability covers any type of business liability, but it doesn’t. Learn the differences between general liability and professional liability insurance.

    We focus on customizing your policy upfront to avoid these types of problems and so you can feel confident you’re getting the right insurance the first time.
