If you suffer a loss, Western’s Commercial Property Insurance will help take care of your repair and recovery costs to ensure that your business gets back up and running.

Commercial Auto Insurance


Commercial car insurance is essential for your business because it protects your company’s assets if you are in an accident. It protects trucks, cars, buses, trailers, vans, construction vehicles and any other vehicle you use for your small business. It also protects your business from liability.

Your rates will be based on factors like the type and number of your vehicles, how old they are, how many drivers need coverage, how far they drive, the type of cargo they transport, where they park, and your claims and credit history. If your business has more than 5 vehicles, you need fleet insurance.

When buying a company car, you should consider insurance costs. Used cars will cost less to insure and passenger vehicles and light trucks cost less to insure than commercial trucks. If you need a trailer, choose one that is not unnecessarily large. Service vehicles cost less to insure than ones used to deliver goods.

Errors & Ommisions Insurance

Errors and Omissions (E&O) insurance, also known as Professional Liability insurance, is a type of coverage that helps protect professionals against claims of inadequate work or negligent actions. It's particularly important for professionals who provide services or advice, such as consultants, lawyers, and insurance agents.
E&O insurance typically covers legal fees and settlements that may arise from claims of errors, negligence, or failure to deliver promised services. This coverage can be crucial for professionals whose clients rely on their expertise and advice.
