Great American Insurance Group’s PolicySweet® Introduces Coverage for Home-Based Businesses

September 15, 2021 GMT


Great American Insurance Group is pleased to announce a new product offering through PolicySweet ®, its end-to-end online experience for small business customers. PolicySweet, which allows small business owners to research, shop, quote and purchase insurance online, is expanding its coverage to include HomeHQ SM, a policy designed for home-based businesses to provide coverage for business liabilities that a homeowners or renters policy does not typically include.

This press release features multimedia. View the full release here:

“A HomeHQ policy can protect at-home businesses and their owners from the unexpected,” said Rich Suter, Divisional President, Great American Alternative Markets. “Our research indicates that most home-based businesses do not have insurance. HomeHQ is an affordable, easy-to-purchase option for home entrepreneurs, giving them peace of mind that their operations are covered for the most common risks.”


HomeHQ coverage from PolicySweet is designed for home-based businesses with four or fewer employees, and includes the following coverage:

  • Business Liability Insurance: It may protect against third-party bodily injury, associated medical costs and legal claims filed against your business.
  • Business Property Insurance: It could protect your business from loss due to fire, wind and more. Property liability insurance replaces business property caused by a covered loss.
  • Business Stock Insurance: It may cover the cost of replacing business inventory or merchandise in the event that it is lost, stolen or damaged.

HomeHQ policies are underwritten by Great American Insurance Company, Great American Assurance Company, Great American Alliance Insurance Company, and Great American Insurance Company of New York, authorized insurers in all 50 states and the D.C.
