Protect your business from destructive events.
Flood insurance to protect your livelihood.
At least 25 percent of businesses that close after destructive events such as floods never reopen. We’ll design a policy that can protect your business, as well as its physical contents and assets, from the damage costs that come from floodwater.
Is your business protected with flood insurance?
As with homeowners insurance policies, many business owners don’t realize that their commercial property insurance doesn’t necessarily cover flooding. Suffering a flood can wipe out a business because it’s not just a matter of replacing damaged equipment and repairing buildings, but also the sheer time it takes, during which the facilities can’t be used.
Why you should get covered for floods sooner rather than later.
National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) policies don’t take effect until after a 30 day waiting period, so it’s not smart to wait until heavy rain is forecasted in your business’ location.
Consider the risks of flooding to your business.
Additionally, it’s important to note that with commercial properties, sudden excessive rainfall isn’t necessarily the biggest flood risk. You must also factor in drains getting clogged, which can turn a normal rainfall into an unexpected catastrophic event.
Choosing the right flood insurance based on your business.
As a business owner, you’ll need to look at both commercial flood insurance offered through the federal National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) and commercial flood insurance coverage from private flood insurance company policies. The two big advantages of private flood insurance company policies are that they can pay out full replacement costs (whereas NFIP payments account for depreciation), and they can include coverage for loss of business during the rebuilding phase (loss of business is not covered by NFIP).
Whether your business is located in an area of common flooding or not, commercial flood insurance is worth exploring. Contact our insurance professionals, and we can help you get started.
