Protecting your business

A business takes years to build – but an accident or disaster could destroy it all in minutes. That’s why it was important for Tom* to have the right cover in place, individualised to his cafe’s needs and requirements.

The story

Tom* owns a cafe in North-West Tasmania. One night water pipes burst, flooding the building and damaging his equipment and stock. The damage was so extensive, his café had to be evacuated and renovated to repair all the water damage.

Thanks to our visit to Tom’s café and his personalised insurance policy, he had everything covered – to damaged stock and equipment and even business interruption, meaning that although he wasn’t able to trade for 6 weeks, he was able to claim the loss of income.

We still hear of many small businesses who are either under insured or not insured at all - what you think may be saving you, will actually hurt you if an accident happens.
