There are at least 3 kinds of insurance you will need when starting a new business.

Liability Insurance – any entity can be sued.  Someone can claim that your product or service caused them harm.  Liability insurance provides financial & legal protection in the event where you are legally liable.

Property Insurance – your building, tools, contents can suffer a loss due to many perils such as fire, water damage or theft.   Property insurance can replace those items and get you back in business.

Commercial Auto Insurance – if you are using your vehicle in the course of your business, make sure you are covered properly.  Insurers can deny coverage if you are using your vehicle for business purposes and they haven’t been made aware and rated it accordingly.
