Protect Your Business from Flooding this Winter!

Protecting your business against the effects of flooding is essential.

The weather in the winter can have a huge impact on our daily lives. Heavy rainfall, freezing temperatures, and melting snow can all increase the likelihood of flooding.

At 1st Choice Insurance, we understand this fully. We are based in Shrewsbury, which was built around the River Severn, and it is currently suffering from major floods due to bad weather, bringing disruption and devastation to local businesses.

No business should fail due to flooding, it can have a damaging effect on communities, businesses, and individuals’ lives. You may not flood often, but if your area has ever been affected by floods, we recommend you consider protection.

Safeguard Your Assets

It is estimated that around 40% of businesses don’t reopen after a flood. When a disaster strikes, it can take months before waiting for a claim to be paid. In some cases, a business cannot afford to wait for a claim to be settled, as it has distressing effects on cash flow and brand reputation, possibly leading to the closure of the business.

FloodFlash quotes are different from those given by traditional insurers as the pay-out value is guaranteed. With FloodFlash, claims are paid out promptly, even as quick as a day after flooding, as they recognise the urgency and importance of getting you back up and running.

How does it work?

  1. You choose the trigger depth and pay-out value.
  2. Engineers will pay a visit and install a smart flood detection sensor on your property.
  3. When a flood happens, as soon as the level reaches the sensor, we arrange the pay-out.

Many insurers impose restrictions and limits on how clients spend their claim after a flood. We want to make sure everyone has access to cost-effective flood cover. For that reason, we quote on every kind of business, including:

  • Retail
  • Manufacturing
  • Residential Landlords
  • Motor Trade
  • Care Home
