Our commercial property insurance provides coverage for loss or damage to your business equipment (e.g., computers, printers, servers, office furniture). We automatically provide $10,000 of coverage for your equipment, but you can insure up to $100,000.
With business property insurance, we cover improvements you’ve made to your office space that you can’t legally remove.
Coverage in and away from the office
You’re covered whether you stay put or are on the go. Your business equipment is insured when it's physically in your office. We also provide up to $10,000 in coverage for equipment you take away from your office such as laptops, projectors or other insured equipment.
Not only do we provide insurance for equipment against risks like fire, we also cover losses due to their accidental damage.
No deductions for depreciation
Most property insurance for small businesses under this policy is valued at its replacement cost. There is no deduction for depreciation so you can replace damaged items for equipment of like kind and quality.
Your Hiscox commercial property insurance provides up to $2,500 of coverage, per premise, for personal items that are damaged in an insured loss such as a large fire.
Lost business income and extra expense
Hiscox business equipment insurance will pay the actual income your business loses and extra expenses incurred you incur for up to 12 months if you cannot operate your business as a result of damage to your insured equipment. This includes up to 60 days of the ongoing employee payroll expenses.
We provide up to $10,000 of business property insurance coverage to replace or restore electronic data that is lost as a result of an insured loss.

Interruption of computer operations
If you suffer an electronic data loss as above, we will also cover up to $10,000 for the actual income your business loses and extra expenses incurred if you cannot operate your business as a result of that data loss.
