Auto Insurance protects against injury and the cost of repairing your vehicle. In most cases, personal auto policies do not extend coverage if the vehicle is used for business. If you rarely use your vehicle for business, for example, if you are a real estate agent driving clients to show a  house, then your personal policy may be all you need. Consult with your insurance agent if this applies to you.

General Liability Insurance covers legal liabilities from accidents and other injuries dealing with your business, with the exception of a work-related injury. Professionals such as lawyers or consultants should consider errors and omissions coverage, which protects them if they are sued due to a problem with their work. You may also choose to add umbrella coverage. This type of coverage protects you if a court judgment against you exceeds your general liability or commercial auto coverage. As this is a secondary policy, the premiums can be inexpensive.
