What is Business Personal Property Insurance?

Optional Contents Coverage for Your Business

The ABMP Business Personal Property (BPP) Insurance is contents coverage for your business. This valuable option is tailored to our members’ unique insurance needs in the event of equipment loss due to a fire, flood, theft, etc.

ABMP’s BPP policy covers members’ business-related property (equipment) both on and off premises—this is an important feature because many policies do not cover property once it is taken off business premises.

We have two BPP options: (1) BPP for $10,000: $95, and (2) BPP for $25,000: $250. Both of these policies provide coverage on a blanket basis, meaning members do not have to submit an initial inventory list itemizing equipment and its value; some companies require this inventory up front. However, if members experience a loss, they’ll need to present receipts and/or photographs of the items in order to file a claim. Property is insured for replacement cost, up to the $10,000 or $25,000 limit. Should a member have a covered loss, the claim will be paid based on the cost of that equipment, new, with no deduction for depreciation.

All losses are subject to a $250 deductible; theft/burglary losses are subject to a $500 deductible. Coverage is written on a broad basis with few exclusions.

To sign up for BPP at the time of joining or renewing: Select the BPP option online, or speak with our team at 800-458-2267.

To add BPP coverage during a membership: Call our team at 800-458-2267.

Coverage will run concurrently with the term of your ABMP membership. If you submit the premium for the BPP coverage with your application or renewal, your BPP coverage will begin with your anniversary date and expire one year (12 months) later. Should you decide to purchase BPP later in your membership year, you will be required to pay the full year's premium for a partial year's coverage.

Does BPP cover items in inventory I have for sale in my business?

Hi Andrea,

Your items in inventory would be considered business property as long as they are related to your insured profession. We can send you a copy of the policy and explain how to inventory your items if you would like. Please contact our risk management specialist, Debbie Higdon, at debbie@abmp.com if you have any more questions.

Does the BPP cover the cost of the rental space?  Like Renter's insurance covers someone who is renting an apartment, would this be the same sort of coverage?  

Hi Lisa,

BPP only covers contents/property. It does not cover the cost to rent the space. If you would like to review a full copy of the policy, give us a call at 800458-2267 or email expectmore@abmp.com.

Hello, I thought I had this insurance on my membership.  But it looks like it was dropped.  I would like to upgrade to the 25,000 policy or $250.00.  Will you automatically add that to my renewal for May?  Please advise.  Thanks, Tanji Samson

Deciding whether to add BPP.  Wondering if I lost my equipment due to fire, would I need receipts for everything in order to get coverage?  ie. sheets, table heater, table, chairs, oil & liniments & analgesics, candles, printer, laptop, lights, etc. etc.  And I think I see a $250 deductible?  Think I only have a few thousand worth of merchandise.  So debating if it's helpful to me.  Thanks for your help with the details!

Does this coverage cover vandalism or break ins? loss of property due to natural disasters like Tornadoes, Fires Hurricanes, Floods?


Due to Covid 19 restrictions, we have some items we will need to place in a storage unit, would these items be covered if something happened to the storage unit?  


Thank you, 

Hi David,

The Business Personal Property policy is designed to cover your business property/contents such as massage table, towel warmer, etc. Regarding theft, the office or location of storage of the property needs to be secured/locked. All policy language applies. The policy states that the area where the items are (stored) must be secured, meaning locked up and the items must be related to your business. Call us if you have any questions.

ABMP’s Lymph Talk Series

Lymph Talk is a series of conversations ABMP Director of Professional Education Kristin Coverly had with practitioners who specialize in the manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) modality. These talks were recorded in conjunction with the October 25, 2022, free, online ABMP CE Summit on Lymph. Kristin says, “My hope is that these conversations increase the awareness of MLD and demonstrate how effective it can be with different populations so massage therapists and bodyworkers are inspired to learn more about this gentle, yet powerful modality!”
