Commercial General Liability

If you unintentionally damage a visitor’s items or if they get hurt at your business, this insurance coverage will provide financial help.

Equipment Breakdown

Mechanical or electrical failures happen. This coverage helps you pay for repairs or replaces new equipment.

Cyber Liability

Cyberattack or data breach protection is available with this type of coverage.

This helps you pay for any damage to vehicles used for work purposes.

The right protection will depend on your company’s insurance needs and budget, so it’s a good idea to work with an Edmonton insurance broker to ensure you’re getting the optimal coverage.

What to know about Buying Insurance in High Prairie

You can sift through endless websites looking for the correct insurance information for your home or hobbies. But having an advisor by your side (i.e. a broker) will ease the pain of understanding what you’re getting. While insurance is not rocket science, it can be complex and time consuming. Our brokers will help you out, either online or by phone. It’s easier than you think to save time and money.

What is a Loss Settlement Option?

Why should you care about a loss settlement option? This option is the money your insurer will pay you after you settle a claim, as agreed upon in your insurance policy. A fire, theft, flood – these are common losses that you could be protected against with the proper policy.

3 Loss Settlement Options:

Agreed Cash Value

Also called the “fair market value,” or the purchase price minus depreciation. Actual cash value generally has a lower premium than the replacement cost option.

Replacement Cost

It will cover the cost of replacement, up to a certain amount.

Agreed Value

This is generally for specialty items like a classic car, artwork, or jewelry collection where the payout value is agreed upon beforehand and that’s what will be paid out.

What is a Policy Limit

It’s important to understand how your policy limits work on your insurance policy. Without making the proper decisions, you could end up paying out of your pocket for medical expenses or legal fees. Your policy limit is the allowed dollar amount your insurance company is set to pay you or a third-party.

If you’re unsure how to set you limits, please contact one of our brokers and we’ll walk you through the steps.
