Unfortunately, even the best-run business can experience accidents, thefts or other losses. While we provide you with important protection in case of a covered loss, you can take some simple steps to protect yourself before and during the claim process.
Inspect and inventory your property. As a matter of standard business practice, take a full inventory of all your property - both stock and other business property. Take photos or videos to supplement your written records. Being able to verify ownership of your inventory and other property is key to any property claim. Inspect your property regularly to document conditions both inside and out, and document your findings. Maintain a file of original purchase invoices.
File the claim. Call your insurance agent immediately to report the incident. Claims professionals are experienced in helping businesses recover from a loss. They can provide helpful advice and guide you through the claims process.
