Business Happens

We want you to be prepared

  • Your driver says he's sure he closed the swinging doors on his truck and shut them tight. Maybe he did.... but the swing doors opened and hit a parked car, a pick-up truck, and two SUV's. No one was hurt but who pays for all the damage?
  • Your business sells electric power supplies that are in tight supply. The season of high-demand is now, and a big snow caused the roof of your warehouse to collapse.
  • A serious auto crash was caused by a defective wheel cylinder, one that you sold to the repair garage that installed them. Now you are named in a lawsuit along with the manufacturer of the wheel cylinders. How much does a good defense attorney charge?
No matter how careful you are things happen. Buildings burn; inventory gets damaged; vandals destroy; people get hurt; equipment hits things that it shouldn't. When things go wrong, your insurance can make it right.
We will make the process of buying Business Insurance as easy as possible by reviewing your business needs. Al Bourdeau Insurance Agency works with many excellent insurance companies for commercial insurance. Our agents will draw from this large set of choices to help you design an insurance package of protection at the best price.
We'll review your business operation and work with you to develop an effective insurance program. Pick one of the types of businesses from the menu above and we'll get started!

  • Your friend is a good guy. He lets you borrow his almost new trencher. Your employee wrecks the trencher and damages a lot of underground wires. Ouch! Your friend wants his trencher - now and in working condition. You don't even want to know what was damaged underground.
  • You hire an "independent contractor" to install a roof. Unbeknownst to you he had his brother-in-law help him on the roof job. You do know that the brother-in-law fell off the roof. There are a lot of medical bills. Did you and the independent contractor have the right insurance?
