Looking for coverage?
We offer all the following coverages as well as many not listed.

Also provides additional coverages and coverage extensions, including: debris removal, pollutant cleanup, preservation of property, fire department service charges, increased cost of construction, electronic data, newly acquired or constructed property, personal effects and personal property of others, off-premises property, valuable papers and records, outdoor property, and non-owned detached trailers.
COMMERCIAL GENERAL LIABILITY
Policy issued to business organizations to protect them against liability claims for bodily injury (BI) and property damage (PD) arising out of premises, operations, products, and completed operations; and advertising and personal injury (PI) liability. The CGL policy was introduced in 1986 and replaced the “comprehensive” general liability policy.
Coverage for sudden movement of the earth’s crust caused by the release of stress accumulated along geologic faults or by volcanic activity.
Refers to normally dry areas which have temporarily been covered in whole or in part by overflowing inland or tidal waters, rapid run-off of surface waters (such as heavy rains), mud (flows or slides), or waters present due to the collapse or subsidence of shores. However, the collapse or subsidence must be due to the action of water, such as erosion.
REPLACEMENT COST COVERAGE (RC)
When used in property insurance contracts, this is the amount it would take to replace the property with like property of the same qualwity and construction. No deduction is made for depreciation or obsolescence.
WATER BACKUP AND SUMP PUMP OVERFLOW COVERAGE
Pays for water damage caused by the backup of water through sewers or drains, or overflow discharged from a sump pump or related equipment.
ACTUAL CASH VALUE (ACV)
The basis of loss settlement in property insurance policies that is equal to replacement cost new less depreciation.
ORDINANCE OR LAW COVERAGE
As your building becomes older, certain changes in your county’s building codes and ordinances change to reflect new standards for construction. If your older property suffers a substantial loss, fixing it may require a higher construction standard to reflect new laws; therefore simply replacing your property as it was just isn’t good enough to meet these new laws and codes. Ordinance or law coverage pays for these upgrades in building standards.

It also covers the insured for the non-owned usage of a vehicle when an employee or volunteer uses their vehicle on company business.

LIQUOR LIABILITY COVERAGE
