Convenience Store and Gas Station Insurance in Waterloo IA & Dubuque IA
Convenience stores are important businesses for customers on the go. No matter what you're selling or what they're looking for -- whether it's gasoline, beverages, snacks, magazines, coffee, toiletries, medicine or tobacco -- you provide a valuable service for your community.
But with any convenience store, there's so much happening, which leaves you to open to all kinds of threats. In terms of your employees alone, consider the possibilities: An employee could have a workplace accident, or steal from the business, or fail to check an ID and sell alcohol to a minor (who in turn could end up in a car accident).
Secure yourself from exposures liable in your industry with convenience store insurance from Elliott-Hartman Agency. We offer convenience store and gas station insurance coverage to businesses in Waterloo, Dubuque, Kansas City, Minneapolis, Cedar Rapids, Des Moines and surrounding areas.

- Bodily harm to customers on the property
