Insurance is a requirement, but you can still look for some price breaks

Package Discounts – As a small business owner, you should understand the importance of repeat customers. Insurance companies certainly get this idea and will often give policyholders a break if they cover more assets with them. This could extend to personal insurance policies as well. For an even bigger boost, pay your entire yearly premium all at once.
