Commercial Flood Insurance
With roots on the Massachusetts coast, our team knows a thing or two about flood insurance.
Flood insurance is complicated and more than half of all written flood policies are wrong. Is yours?
The average business owners policy will not protect you from losses caused by flood waters. These policies can protect you against other types of naturally occurring damages like fire or lightning. A commercial flood insurance policy can protect your business against a range of environmental threats. Overflowing water from nearby streams or rivers can prove damaging to a property, particularly after a period of prolonged rainfall. Additionally, heavy rain can create storm drain blockages, or even breaks in dams or levees. A commercial flood insurance policy can protect your business against these perils, among others.

Advice from Joe: Seasonal Flooding
In Massachusetts, your flood insurance policy could end up protecting your business from unfortunate losses come Spring time. We’ve all seen the huge messes melting snow can bring when weather lightens up. When the runoff from snow and ice melting seeps into the basement of a commercial property, you can be sure it’ll wreak some havoc.
Unfortunately, this type of water damage could be considered “flooding” and probably wouldn’t be covered by a BOP. This is where a flood insurance policy can make all the difference. Commercial Flood insurance can typically provide up to $500,000 worth of coverage for your property itself and up to an additional $500,000 for the interior contents. This means that not only is your business itself protected, but any products or equipment inside will be too.
