Property insurance is a first party coverage that protects your physical assets against loss. This may include your building, your personal/business property and your equipment. It can also cover other exposures like theft of money and securities, mechanical equipment breakdown and computer systems.
If you have a loss that prevents your business from opening its doors, Business Income Coverage is another property coverage that covers the income that you would have earned if a loss did not occur. This will allow you to continue to pay your payroll and fixed expenses even when you can’t operate due to a covered loss.
In addition, Property Insurance can be written in a number of ways that is advantageous to FEC owners and operators. Coverage can be written on a replacement cost or an agreed amount basis. What this means is that you will know exactly what you are entitled to up front if there is a loss. This is very important because it will ultimately determine how quickly and easily you will be back up and running after a significant loss. We know that timing can be critical in many FEC businesses, so the right coverage will make the difference between shutting your doors for a few days or forever.
