Business Interruption Insurance Coverage
Managing risk is an essential part of operations for every business. Now more than ever, it is important to ensure that your business is protected if something unexpected happens.
If an insured property loss occurs (e.g. a fire) and your business can’t carry on as usual, business interruption insurance will help you continue meeting your fixed costs and retain your key personnel if your income is diminished.
From additional out-of-pocket costs like rental of a temporary location, rental of equipment or tools, or replacement of inventory, this type of insurance coverage offers many benefits to business owners.
Business Interruption Insurance Coverages Include:
- Gross Rental Income
- Loss of Income or Earnings (no co-insurance)
- Farm Earnings
- Extended Loss of Income
Our experienced team of insurance agents will assist you in selecting the best coverages for your business, while ensuring that you are receiving the best value.
We’re A Different Type of Insurance Provider
Dumfries is a mutual insurer, which means that we do things differently from the large, corporate insurers.
We are proud to be a 100% Canadian-owned company, owned solely by its policyholders, and backed by one of the world’s most financially secure insurance networks: 40 mutual companies, known as Ontario Mutuals, providing strength, stability, and expertise.
When you become a policyholder with Dumfries, you become a member owner of the company. This means:
- You have a voice.
When you purchase an insurance policy with us, you’re more than a policyholder. You become a member of our company and your vote counts when important decisions are being made.
- You support your local community.
When you pay your premiums, the money goes towards employing your neighbours, supporting the local economy, and investing in local projects.
- You are treated with respect.
When you need assistance, you will receive help from a caring and responsive team of professionals. You will never have to deal with a call centre.
- You will receive great rates.
When you have a policy with Dumfries you are supporting the not-for-profit company, Ontario Mutuals. You can rest assured that your premiums are not going to a select group of shareholders.
The spirit behind mutual insurance is supportive and helpful. It’s about looking out for the greater good — and that’s what makes us different.
