Good News Story: Ausure Broker Saves Rural Pub From The Perils Of Underinsurance
It’s common for property and business owners to underestimate the cost of a rebuild and re-establishment if their property or business were to be lost during a fire or other events. Being underinsured can have dire consequences for your payout at the time of making a claim.
Ausure insurance brokers can offer professional assistance to ensure their clients are adequately insured and know the risks involved with underinsurance. Here is one recent example from Ausure Insurance Services in rural Victoria.
Josh Legudi, Managing Director of Ausure Insurance Services, reports
One of our clients owns a rural pub in Victoria. Madeline Chamberlain, our Senior Broker in Rutherford Street Swan Hill did the insurance pre-renewal review with the insured. Maddie discussed the underinsurance clause with the insured and advised it would be worth getting a quantity survey report completed to provide a more comprehensive analysis.
MCQ Quantity Surveyors was engaged and did a thorough job surveying the property.
When MCG provided the quantity survey report, it revealed the pub owners were actually underinsured by just over a whopping $1 million on the property sum insured and 21 months short for the Business Interruption indemnity period.
Ausure provided the report to the insured along with an endorsement quote for the changes, as per the MCG report. The client accepted all changes.
“This was a great result for the insured who can now rest assured they are well covered,” reflects Josh.
Well done Maddie and team!
