Protect Your Business From Flooding!

Flooding is a huge issue that can affect your business!

At 1st Choice Insurance, we understand this fully. We are based in Shrewsbury, which was built around the River Severn, and it is currently surging its way through our town, bringing huge disruption and devastation to local businesses. You may not flood as often, but if your area has ever been affected by floods, we strongly recommend you consider protection.

No business should fail due to flooding, it can have a damaging effect on communities, businesses, and individual’s lives, so we have partnered with FloodFlash which aligns with our ethos of making commercial insurance personal.

An astonishing 2 in 5 businesses don’t reopen after a flood. When disaster strikes it can take months of waiting before claims get paid. Usually, a business cannot afford to wait for a claim to be settled, as it has distressing effects on cash flow, brand reputation and possibly leading to closure of the business.

FloodFlash quotes are different to 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.

So, how does it work?

  • You choose the trigger depth and pay-out value.
  • Engineers will pay a visit and install a smart flood detection sensor to your property.
  • 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
  • Charities
  • Motor Trade
  • Agriculture
  • Warehouses
  • Sports Clubs
