The Verdict

State Farm offers general liability business insurance packages for many types of businesses. It’s difficult to discuss specific coverage, since business types and risks vary so widely. In addition to small business liability insurance, State Farm has a commercial liability umbrella policy which is important if you need $1 million or more in liability insurance.

It’s good to know that you can use one company to cater to all your business insurance needs.

This model is often more expensive than direct-sales companies that don’t pay as many commissions. However, there can be value in having an agent. This personal connection can lessen anxiety when you have to file claims, and the personal partnership between you and your insurance company humanizes the claims process. The easier the claims process is, the more you can focus on your business.

State Farm is a mutual organization, so it doesn't answer to shareholders. As a result, it can offer lower rates, accept lower profits and fund business improvements without having to worry about its stock value. Mutual companies don’t pay out dividends to shareholders so they can refund some of any surplus back to its policyholders.

You can get quote options by contacting them through their website, talk to a representative over the phone or go to one of State Farm’s offices and speak to an agent in person.
