Huckleberry offers a range of coverage for U.S. small businesses in need of insurance. Coverage types include general liability, workers’ compensation, business owners’ policies, business interruption, liquor liability, and more. Five of its policies, including including cyber, automotive insurance, and umbrella insurance, were added just last year.
