What is inland marine insurance?

Inland Marine insurance generally covers property that is movable or transportable in nature. It is often used to cover property that needs broader protection than what may be provided by the typical Business Owners Policy.

Whether you are working off-site, shipping or transporting goods, or need coverage on contracting equipment, State Farm® Commercial Inland Marine insurance should be part of your overall plan. We can help you meet your unique coverage needs by endorsing it onto your State Farm Business Owners Policy, or issue a separate policy on an annual or short-term basis.
