PHLY offers new insurance protection for restoration contractors
By Michelle Voli
Bala Cynwyd, PA - December 17, 2012 — Philadelphia Insurance Companies (PHLY), a leading property/casualty and professional liability insurance company for niche markets, now offers insurance coverage specifically designed to protect Restoration Contractors. These companies are typically hired — often by insurance companies — to clean up and restore property following a fire, flood or other damage.
The frequency and severity of convective storms is leading to greater demand for the services of Restoration Contractors. Businesses in this industry looking for auto, environmental and other specialty insurance protection often seek coverage through multiple carriers. PHLY’s new product conveniently offers these coverages in one source, backed by an A.M. Best "A++" rating.
"We’re able to offer Restoration Contractors a one-stop solution for their unique coverage needs," commented Mark Plousis, Vice President of Underwriting for Philadelphia Insurance Companies. "Weather volatility is leading to high demand for the services of Restoration Contractors and our previous experience writing environmental and auto coverage for this market led us to expand coverage options for businesses in this industry."
The comprehensive policy includes general liability, property, auto, environmental, crime and fidelity, inland marine, and Bailees (property of others) coverage. PHLY provides added auto coverage benefits including zero deductible for auto glass, towing coverage, and lease gap protection. The coverage is admitted in all states except Louisiana. Environmental is available on a non-admitted basis.
