Business Insurance for Storms

Even though the recent super storm “Juno” was much weaker than expected, it was a good reminder to make sure that your business is protected in case of any natural disaster. Knowing just what your current insurance policies cover, and if there are any additional policies that you can invest in for extra protection, can help to ensure that you stay safe in any weather conditions. Keep these insurance storm tips in mind to ensure that you are prepared.

Before the next storm hits, look over your existing policies to ensure that they are providing enough coverage. Your property damage policy will cover any damage that is done to your building. It will provide protection for the costs that are associated with repairing, rebuilding, or replacing any property that is damaged during a storm.

Another insurance policy that you should consider investing in is a business interruption insurance policy. Although it will add an extra expense onto your bills each month, it will provide coverage for any income that is lost if you are forced to shut down while your building is being repaired after a storm. Keeping up-to-date and correct financial records of your business will help to ensure that you get the money that you deserve while you are rebuilding.

Even if you have all the right insurance policies in place, it will not do you any good if you do not make a claim in a timely manner. Most insurance companies require that you notify them of any potential claims after a disaster or they have the option to deny the claim.
