Property Coverage Details

Our business property insurance provides the protection you need for your building and contents. You will have peace knowing you are protected against the worst life can throw at you.


Building

Start with the basics, your building or structure, is covered against a wide variety of things that can go wrong.  Also included are additions, permanently installed fixtures and equipment, and the personal property used to maintain your building.

 

Contents

If you have a building, you probably store something in it—your contents.  Business personal property coverage includes everything from your furniture to your stock.  If you are responsible for other people’s property, this coverage will protect you when that property is at your location.

 

What makes us different?

Acuity understands each business is unique and you might need more coverage than the standard property policy provides. The Acuity Advantages endorsement is included with every property policy. 

In addition to providing an increased limit for fire department service charge, Advantages provides 18 additional coverages Acuity believes are crucial to protecting your business. 

 

Acuity optional coverages

Even the best intentions can fall short. You think you are completely protected, but gaps in coverage can exist. Acuity offers several optional coverages to fill common coverage gaps. 

  • Business income provides coverage for continuing expenses and income while your business is being repaired or lost rental income due to a loss.

  • The Acuity enhancements endorsement provides our broadest coverage for a little extra premium. It includes increased limits for some coverages, including debris removal and many additional coverages, including employee dishonesty, money and securities, and computers.

    • During my time in manufacturing, one of my top priorities was the safety of all our employees, as well as any visiting customers, vendors, and contractors. Safety was not only important to me, but to everyone at the plant. From the safety department and management to the employees on the floor, everyone understood safety was a priority.
    • Stylists are truly in a unique situation when it comes to their clients' heads. They see a person’s scalp and hair in a way many people don't. This provides them with the opportunity to assist their clients in spotting changes and potential signs of skin cancer that the client may not notice!
