Running a successful business takes years of hard work with many endless days, working weekends, and thankless tasks. It’s taken the right kind of experience and partnerships to get your business to where it is today. We understand exactly this at Auto & General, which is why we’ve used our years of experience and expertise to put together several Commercial Insurance policies, specific for your business.

We understand every aspect of risk your business may face, and our Commercial Insurance team is there is ensure that you are covered for it.


Types of Commercial Insurance

We’ve tapped into our experience from the past three decades and combined traditional Commercial Insurance policy terms with more flexible options under our Business Insurance category. Options that are tailored to suit almost any type of business. Not every business faces the same risks, which is why they each deserve to be insured differently. 

We cover over 700 different types of businesses, including:

  • Office – travel agents, estate agents, general office businesses, training centres and similar office-based businesses.

  • Professional – accountants, lawyers, architects, engineers and IT consultants.

  • Tradesman – plumbers, electricians, painters, handymen and artisans.

  • Medical – doctors, dentists, optometrists, veterinarians and psychiatrists.

  • General – florists, hairdressers, beauty salons, book shops, retailers, franchises and coffee shops.

  • Hospitality – guest houses and bed and breakfasts.


Why do you need Commercial Insurance?

Auto & General’s Commercial Insurance protects your business from a variety of risks. Whether it’s damage to your business premises, injuries to your employees, business interruption causing a loss in income, or other risks that are out of your control. We’ve got you covered, making sure that should the unexpected happen, you aren’t forced out of business due to not being able to cope financially.

All of our products are tailored to suit the unique requirements of your business. Rest assured knowing that your business is in the hands of a trusted insurance partner, with decades of experience.
