Restoration Insurance Tips: Is it Covered by Auto or General Liability?


Business Income (or business interruption insurance) protects restoration contractors from losing income when their facility suffers a disaster that forces it to close. While a property insurance policy covers the physical damage or loss to a restoration contractor’s property, a business income insurance policy will cover the business for lost profits and expense payments.

This type of policy is usually purchased in conjunction with a property insurance policy. An important note is that a business income policy will only pay if the property policy covers the claim.

A business income policy can include coverage for the following: Profits that would have been earned. Fixed Costs- Operating expenses and other ongoing costs.Temporary Location- Some policies provide extra expense coverage to help move to and operate from a temporary storage location.Extra Expenses- Reimbursement for additional expenses (beyond average costs) a business incurs to continue operations.

All business income policies will include a specified period for which the insurance company will provide coverage. Policies may provide coverage for as little as three months, while some include coverage for up to 2 years.
