Fire, wind, explosions, storms, burst pipes, vandalism, and theft are just a few of the risks that commercial property insurance is designed to safeguard your business’s physical assets from. It safeguards your structure and belongings, as well as fences, signage, and other outside fixtures. It is a necessary component of your commercial insurance policy.
You can look to be covered for a variety of risks if you have obtained commercial property insurance for your company. However, you should be aware that business property insurance policies do not cover the following frequent damages.
Breakdown of equipment
Damage to business-owned equipment caused by a covered risk, such as fire or explosion, is covered by commercial property insurance. It will not, however, cover damages caused by device failure or malfunction. Unless your business insurance package includes equipment breakdown insurance, the expense of repair or replacement will be borne by your organization.
Damage from a flood or an earthquake
Damage from floods, landslides, and earthquakes is not covered by commercial property insurance, just like it isn’t covered by homes insurance. The only way to safeguard your business against these dangers is to purchase commercial flood insurance or earthquake insurance. If your business is in a flood zone or an earthquake-prone area, our knowledgeable agent can assist you in obtaining the best quotation for the coverage you require.
