The amount you will need to pay for your business contents insurance depends on a number of factors:
Firstly, it depends on the amount of equipment you will need to cover as part of your work.

Are business contents covered under homeowners insurance?
Even if you keep your equipment at home and run a home business, your business equipment is unlikely to be covered by homeowners insurance. Homeowners insurance generally only covers equipment that is for personal use.
The moment you use your equipment for paid work, it’s usually no longer covered by homeowners insurance. You should speak to your insurance provider to check what is covered under your policy.
