- The number of employees.

-The total gross annual receipts in the last 12-months.

-The types and number of losses and or claims that the company has experienced in the last 5 years.

-The nature of the business and the type of operations. 

-The online reviews and reputation of the business.
-If your business has many safety protocols set in place, this will lower the cost of your insurance. 

-If more coverage is bundled with Tradition Mutual Insurance such as commercial auto inrance, home or tenant insurance, this will lower the rate.
