What does family entertainment center insurance cover?
No one family fun center insurance policy looks the same, which is a good thing. Your entertainment center may be similar to others, but it still has its own differences and quirks that make it unique. Your insurance should reflect differences and quirks. However, all family entertainment center insurance policies generally cover the same things.
- General Liability: This coverage protects your business if a client or guest is injured or your business’ operations cause property or product damage and copyright violation. For example, what if someone slips and falls on your property and breaks an arm?
- Commercial Property: This coverage offers a financial safety net if disaster hits and your site of operations — whether it’s a storefront, range, or combination of both — is damaged by fire, weather, or smoke. It can also cover equipment breakdown, which is especially vital for a business that relies on specialized equipment like pinsetters, go-karts, baseball pitching machines, and more.
- Commercial Auto: Commercial auto insurance is vital if cars are involved in your day-to-day business operations. You can also opt for liability and physical coverage for the vehicle. A specific list of drivers with dates of birth and drivers’ license numbers will be required.
- Workers Compensation: If one of your employees is injured, this insurance can cover the payment of their medical expenses, lost wages, and rehabilitation costs.
How much does family entertainment center insurance cost?
Earlier, we mentioned that no one family fun center insurance policy looks like another. The same can be said for your premium as well. While we can’t give a precise estimate, we can tell you what factors can influence your premiums.
- Your business’s location
- Claims history
- Size of your operation
- Whether your business is indoors, outdoors, or a combination of the two
