Business Catastrophe Insurance in Columbia and Boonville MO

Business catastrophe insurance is an additional level of coverage that goes above and beyond the standard business policy most small and medium-sized companies have. As a business owner, you want to be absolutely sure that your investments are protected in case of unforeseen calamity—nobody wants to see all of their hard work destroyed by fire, theft, or anything else. However, every policy has its limits, and if the damage to your business is so severe that it exceeds the limits of your current business or property coverage, you'll be expected to pay the difference yourself.

Business Catastrophe Insurance Features

Business catastrophe insurance comes into play to prevent you from having to pay the excessive cost of a catastrophic loss. If you exceed the normal limits and the claim is for a qualifying event, this coverage will provide an additional level of protection and reduce or eliminate the portion of the claim that you would otherwise have to pay out of your own pocket. Here are the important things to know about this policy:

  • Business catastrophe insurance coverage amounts are proportional to individual business types and indemnity periods. Most companies purchase this policy and get at least one million dollars of coverage, just to be absolutely sure they have the protection they need if something goes extraordinarily wrong. Sometimes these extraordinary situations can arise due to the nature of a certain business, or because of a freak accident or natural disaster. One of our agents can help you determine an appropriate coverage length and amount.
  • This coverage may protect you from things your normal policies do not. While the specifics depend on the plan you get, business catastrophe insurance is usually offered as an umbrella policy that can cover almost anything that might occur.
  • This is the last resort, not the first. If a claim is covered by your normal policy and doesn't exceed those limits, your business catastrophe policy will not be utilized. Its main purpose is protecting you against particularly large claims, just in case something goes wrong and you truly need the extra protection.

Testimonials

"I never thought about moving my coverage anywhere else. I had been with AA for 30 years. Vogel-Stuart shopped me out and saved me $250 over what I was paying same coverage. They are great to work with. I can call and make any changes over the phone since I am hour away. They always answer the phone like I am their favorite client. I would recommend them to anyone, even if you aren’t looking for new agency. Give Vogel-Stuart a try. They surprised me!"

"I just moved my personal auto policy to Vogel-Stuart in April after shopping around for the best price. They were able to save me a lot of money compared to the other quotes I received. I am currently working on starting my own lawn care and snow removal business and they were quick to get my quote to me and very reasonable for just starting out. I would highly recommend Vogel-Stuart to anyone looking for personal or commercial insurance; they have been very good to me!"

Kellan F from Jamestown, MO
"I have been with Stuart Insurance Agency since 2006. I own Wren’s Home Improvements and when Stuart Insurance Agency took over in November, the transition was smooth and seamless. The new faces in the office have picked up where John and Ann left off. They recently saved me around $300 on my personal auto policy. I would highly recommend Vogel-Stuart to anyone looking for business or personal insurance. "
