Does all business insurance cover flood?
“Business insurance policies that cover property loss or damage can be altered to include flood insurance and the loss of income as a result of a flooding event, however, each policy and insurer have a different level of cover and in most cases, it is not an automatic inclusion.”
Steve Sloan urges you to “ Discuss with your broker the level of cover that you require, check flood mapping for your area, consider the likely loss of income as a result of a closure from flooding.”
What should you check for?
