Florida law requires a handgun in a conveyance to be "encased"...

It has been determined that encased means in an encasement which may be a glove box, console, gun case or holster...

It does not have to be in a "compartment" at all...

in fact, it can be anywhere in the vehicle (so long as out of sight to the passerby) such as under the seat, between the seat and console or other seat as long as it is in a case or holster...

It can be in any state of readiness you desire up to and including loaded, round chambered, not on safety etc...

The limit of a CCW permit is that if the person is not a permit holder, he/she may not have the firearm "on the person"...

As for whether or not the vehicle is private or business... i do not know that part... I do know that many MANY years ago, i was in violation when I had my mossberg in my dump truck but I think that was a D.O.T. commercial vehicle regulation rather than a florida statute...
