Business Interruption Insurance covers financial losses that are a direct consequence of an incident. Business Interruption will assist with quantifying loss of profit, loss of rental and additional staff costs.
Your Insurance company will appoint a loss adjuster to look after their interests. He is paid by them to assess the validity of the claim and see how he can reduce or even refuse to pay the claim. He is NOT on your side.
We will manage the entire process and get what you are covered for. Let us present the options to you for a final decision. We will take away the stress and aggravation of dealing with Insurers and their appointed representatives. As well as your Building Insurance Claims, our Loss Assessors will quantify your material, stock and contents losses & our Chartered Surveyors will scope the damage to the building.
