If you’re considering Geico business insurance, this is the review you want to watch first.
Geico is known for two things, cheap car insurance and funny commercials. Even as an insurance agent, I’ve always found their commercials funny.
That being said, offering cheap car insurance does not mean you’re good at business insurance.
Here’s what you need to know about GEICO business insurance…
Business Insurance is confusing, time-consuming, and costly.
We fix these problems.
GEICO Business Insurance Review
First things first, when you “Buy” business insurance from GEICO you’re not actually buying insurance from GEICO, instead you’re buying insurance from a completely different company that GEICO has affiliated with to offer business insurance.
Essentially, they’re brokering business insurance for other carriers. Essentially, they are acting like an insurance agent.
This doesn’t mean that using GEICO for your business insurance is wrong, just that you’re getting Travelers or another carrier, not GEICO.

Who Should Use GEICO Business Insurance
If you are the type of person who likes to DIY (Do-it-yourself) your business insurance, if you prefer a call center, or if working exclusively online feels easier, then GEICO business insurance might be the right solution.
Some business owners feel pressure talking to an insurance agent. Some agents will use pressure sales tactics on business owners, that’s not the way we operate here at Rogue Risk.
Remember that when you purchase business insurance through GEICO all insurance decisions are on you. Unlike working with an agency, you’re not getting highly-skilled, focused advice on your business insurance.
DIYing your business insurance creates opportunities for gaps in coverage.
Cons to GEICO Business Insurance
Gaps in insurance coverage are a problem. You run a business, your business is your life, it’s how you make money, if you have employees, it’s how you put money into their pockets.
You’re serving a community, whether it’s an online community, international community, or it’s a local hometown that you grew up in, gaps in coverage create opportunities for you to lose that business.
This isn’t meant to be a scare tactic, providing a foundation for you to grow your business is the purpose of commercial insurance.
When you have your worst day, your business gets to keep going.
There is no doubt you can use GEICO to find perfectly fine business insurance.
That being said, our recommendation is to find an agent you can trust. That’s the key. Find someone you trust.
If you trust GEICO, then go to them for your business insurance.
But I highly recommend finding a human, a person, a company, an agency. It can be an agency in your backyard or it can be an agency like ours, which deals with business owners across the country.
We’re based in upstate New York, we work with a lot of businesses in New York State, but we also write throughout the entire country.
Whoever you choose to trust, trust that person and let them do their job. Let them advise you and you’re more than likely to find a better business insurance program.
At Rogue Risk, we do business insurance every day.
