Floods can sink a commercial business, causing damage that can be hard to overcome and even shut them down for good. Philadelphia Insurance Companies (PHLY) is introducing a new flood insurance solution to protect a wide variety of businesses and get them back on solid ground.

PHLY is launching a new Commercial Primary Flood insurance product designed to be an alternative to businesses enrolled in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). There are a vast number of flood-related risks, many of which are unique for different types of businesses. This protection is available to various non-residential types of businesses, including those in high hazard flood zones.

“We are an innovative and premier administrator of commercial primary flood insurance,” says Neal Schmidt, Vice President of Underwriting Specialty Property. “Our program separates PHLY from competitors by providing an attractive alternative for businesses looking for complete flood coverage at a great value.”

Included in the policy is replacement cost coverage for building and contents, as well as location limits up to $5,000,000. PHLY is partnering with its sister company WNC First Insurance Services to offer this flood program. WNC Insurance Services will underwrite and administer the program.
