Is Your Excavators Insurance As Comprehensive As It Could Be?

Now that the season has made good weather a common occurrence, chances are that you’ve walked past a construction site or two as business picks back up for builders, excavators and contractors alike.

As a passerby, it’s likely that you’ve never even given the workers a second thought. But if you’re one of the workers operating an enormous piece of machinery day after day, helping to clear out an area or build a new structure, it should come as no surprise to you that your entire operation needs to be properly insured.

Insurance is important for any work site, but is especially vital on active construction and excavation sites. For contractors, insurance offers protection against different levels of risk regarding possible accidents, injuries, or even property damage caused specifically by ongoing work. Like contractors, excavators need comprehensive insurance as protection against the many risks associated with working in the construction business; while contractors generally manage the oversight of a construction project, excavators are exposed to a range of potentially hazardous situations involving underground digging, heavy machinery, cranes, and sometimes even explosives.

It only takes one small mistake while working as an excavator to create a large problem that could damage the area being worked on – or worse, injure a worker. And if a company has the wrong insurance policy, they may not be properly covered in the event of a worksite accident or lawsuit.

Fortunately the right insurance will help ensure your company’s safety and financial security, allowing you to focus on working safely, rather than worrying about what you’ll do if something goes wrong.

Don’t spend your valuable time worrying about what your insurance covers – instead, let our team at the Fisher Widmann Flick Insurance Agency help you. Our experienced team of staff members working throughout central Pennsylvania can ensure that you’re fully covered by your Excavator Insurance. Our cost-cutting services will give you full coverage in a range of areas, including:

Never Make A Sale Without Special Events Insurance

Home and garden shows. Expos. Farmers markets. Arts festivals.

What do events like these have in common? They all feature concessionaires and vendors, each selling their handmade wares and crafts to an excited community. For many attendees special events like these are the highlight of their spring or summer – and for the concessionaires and vendors, these events are their livelihood.

So whenever you prepare to head out, set up a booth, and start selling your homemade goods, don’t forget to ask: do I have the insurance coverage I need for this event? 

While not every small-town local event will require that their vendors purchase insurance, having insurance in place while attending an event is always highly recommended. Special event insurance can offer protection in a range of situations:

-Your goods and services are your livelihood – how much would losing one or more of them set you back? Insurance can help keep you on your feet in the event of a theft.

-A special event is a public place, which means that your business must operate in a public place. Your insurance should protect your business from any injury or property damage claims that you may face as a result of your operations.

-As a business owner your responsibility does not stop when an event ends. Should one of your products become involved in an injury or property damage case later down the line, good insurance will kick in to help you deal with that situation.

Exactly what a concessionaire or vendor needs ultimately comes down to what they sell, how long they’ll be at an event, and the environment the event will take place in. This makes finding the right insurance for each event you go to incredibly important. Our staff at the Fisher Widmann Flick Insurance Agency understand this – that’s why we’ve taken steps to ensure that you’re always properly insured at the special events you attend. 

To make this happen we’ve partnered with the United States Liability Insurance Group, who’s known for specializing in underwriting low premium, low hazard specialty insurance products. Together we’re offering specifically designed insurance packages that accommodate the coverage and pricing needs for a wide variety of concessionaires and vendors. Through this partnership we now offer general policies and packages alike for special events that include things such as auto liability coverage, Inland Marine coverage and more.

Whether your booth will be located indoors, outdoors, in a lot, under a tent, or at a local market or fair, you can count on us to protect your operation. If you’re preparing to attend an event in Johnstown or central Pennsylvania, go ahead and make an appointment with one of our staff members to prepare your special event insurance package. Our representatives in Blaire County, Cambria County, Somerset, Latrobe, or in any other nearby counties are all ready to work with you so that you can continue doing what you love knowing that you’re good to go, no matter what might happen during your day at work!

Will Your Insurance Protect You When Nature Strikes?

Last week tragedy struck when bizarre weather patterns resulted in dozens of powerful tornados, massive flooding, high winds and damaging dust storms occurring across multiple states. In some cases, the powerful weather fronts striking the Plains and southern states swept north, resulting in rainstorms that spread across the East Coast up to the state of New York. Unfortunately, last week’s freak-weather had devastating effects on many communities that have forced survivors to take in the resulting damages and evaluate their options for the future.

It’s difficult to imagine a disaster on the scale of what we saw last week happening in central Pennsylvania.  But natural disasters can hit anywhere and any time – and that’s why you need to ask yourself – would your insurance protect and assist you if disaster struck?

1. Evaluating Your Homeowners Policy

Basic homeowners insurance policies usually cover certain damages caused by some acts of nature, such as lightning strikes, wildfires, windstorms, hail storms, damage caused by heavy snow or ice on your home, and even tornados or certain amounts of volcanic activity. While this seems like enough on first glance, several key things are not included in this coverage:

-Any damage caused by earthquakes

-Any damages caused by flooding

-Certain types of hurricane damage

Central Pennsylvania, while a very safe state in terms of natural disasters, is still at risk for flooding, both due to local weather and due to hurricane storms moving north after making landfall. Because of this, locals are strongly advised to purchase additional coverage to make sure they’re protected in these events – and to make sure their homeowners insurance comprehensively covers any personal losses or potential rebuilding costs.

2. Evaluating Your Renters Policy

Renters by definition have to deal with a unique situation – while they can (and should!) look into a renter’s insurance policy that covers damage to their furniture, electronics and other personal belongings in the event of a natural disaster, the responsibility of maintaining building insurance belongs to the landlord.

Keeping this in mind, renters should always check their insurance policies to see if insurance would cover living expenses in the event of a disaster making an apartment unlivable; ultimately, renters are responsible for their belongings and their living expenses, but not for the damages that could affect an apartment complex following a natural disaster.

3. Evaluating Your Auto Insurance Policy

As we’ve discussed before, basic auto insurance offers skeletal protections for policy holders – and unfortunately damages due to natural disasters are not included in a basic policy. Many comprehensive auto insurance policies also cover the collateral losses that can take place as a direct result of a natural disaster, such as vandalism, theft (looting) and animal damages. It’s highly recommended that central Pennsylvanians invest in auto insurance that covers each of these scenarios.

So…what now? 

No one ever thinks they’ll be involved in a natural disaster. But after the events of last week, everyone watching the news should be asking themselves, “How much damage would my insurance cover if that happened to me?”

Many studies indicate that well over half of the insurance policies held in this country would not adequately cover natural disaster damages. With ever changing weather forecasts looming ahead, now is the perfect time to review your homeowner/renter and auto insurance policies. We strongly encourage you to schedule a personal assistance meeting with one of our Fisher Widmann Flick Insurance Agency staff members. Our representatives in Blaire County, Cambria County, Somerset, Latrobe, or in any other nearby counties will help you take inventory of your valuables to ensure that your insurance policy covers all of your possessions – and not just the structure of your home. We’ll also make sure that your insurance policy is affordable while still offering comprehensive coverage that will offer enough living expenses to cover the costs of temporary lodging, food, and other necessities in the event of a natural disaster.

Put simply, our job is to make sure that Mother Nature doesn’t become your worst enemy this summer – so give us a call and make sure that you’re thoroughly covered and properly protected today!

Now Is The Time To Talk About Life Insurance

At the Fisher Widmann Flick Insurance Agency, we understand that talking about insurance is not typically a pleasant experience. This is especially true when it comes to purchasing one of the most important types of insurance of all: life insurance.

Life insurance is designed to offer a source of financial stability to friends or family listed in your policy as beneficiaries upon your passing. Needless to say, talking about what to do in the event of our passing is not an easy task. Discussing life insurance policies can be one of the most difficult things any of us has to do – so difficult, in fact, that many of us would rather talk about any other topic instead of life insurance!

Unpleasant as the idea of passing on may be, discussing and purchasing life insurance is especially critical if you have a family that would be affected by your passing. And since we’re encouraged to insure anything else of value to us, why put off insuring ourselves? This is especially true if you’re healthy and entering a point in your life where life insurance would greatly benefit a family that relies on you; by looking into life insurance while you’re healthy and young, you have ample opportunity to save money on your policy, as well as to do any necessary research that will help you find the perfect policy.

When you do decide to purchase life insurance, your next step is to ensure that you purchase a policy that meets your needs. According to money.usnews.com, “Financial experts often recommend that people take out insurance policies worth at least seven times their annual household income, but specific needs vary.

This, however, is not a requirement, as the worth of your life insurance is ultimately dependent on your needs as an individual. Foxbusiness.com said it best: “How much life insurance do you need? The answer depends on several factors, including your age, the ages of your spouse and children, your income, your mortgage and other debts, college expenses for your children and/or spouse, and the size of the last bill you’ll ever incur: your funeral expenses.”

Of course, like any other type of insurance, life insurance coverage varies from policy to policy, and may need to be changed or replaced depending on your changing needs from year to year. Our staff at the Fisher Widmann Flick Insurance Agency understands this need. That’s why we are all specially trained and ready to help evaluate your policy options to ensure that you obtain an affordable policy that will ensure your loved ones will be supported in the event of your sudden passing. So go ahead and schedule your appointment with us today; our representatives are ready to help you begin the long-term planning process that will result in the best life insurance plan for you.

Equipment Breakdown Insurance Will Truly Protect Your Business

A lot of effort goes into making any business successful. So after owners and employees alike put lots of time, talent, energy and even financial support into operating a business, doesn’t it make sense that those investments and efforts would be protected?

As we’ve discussed in the past, disaster can strike any business at any time; that’s why commercial property insurance is usually considered the must-have protection policy for businesses. However, even if your business does have commercial property insurance, there are still many more parts of the business that you should look into protecting.

Consider, for example, your business’ equipment. Most (but not all) property insurance policies will cover damaged or stolen equipment in the case of fire, a break-in, and other disasters of that nature. But what happens if your equipment stops working during a normal business day?

In that case, property insurance offers no protection or assistance with that particular problem whatsoever. This means that a single power surge, short circuit, or general malfunction could potentially cause a major problem, and depending on the equipment could even bring your entire business to a standstill.

Equipment is exactly what allows a business to continue to operate normally. But inevitably, breakdowns and malfunctions will interrupt the work process; that’s exactly why a business needs to be prepared to deal with them and ensure that their business will begin running smoothly once more as soon as possible.

Fortunately, in addition to commercial property insurance, many insurance companies also offer Business Equipment Insurance and Equipment Breakdown Insurance that can be tailored specifically to your business’ needs. Just a few examples of types of equipment that can be insured are*:

 ·Refrigeration and air-conditioning equipment

·Boilers

·Electrical equipment

·Computers

·Diagnostic equipment

·Mechanical equipment

·Pressure vessels

·Telecommunications systems

·Production machinery

Whether your concern is protecting a fleet of computers or covering the potential repair bill of a massive work vehicle, one insurance policy could ensure that your business is up and running after a malfunction, for a minimal financial hassle, within no time. Plus, as an added level of protection, often business equipment insurance offers coverage for a loss of income experienced during a repair, so that your business is minimally set back after lost time on the job.

Equipment breakdown insurance is an essential tool to prevent major losses at your business. That’s why now is the perfect time to review your business’ commercial property and equipment insurance policies. We strongly encourage you to schedule a personal assistance meeting with one of our Fisher Widmann Flick Insurance Agency staff or representatives to go over one, the other, or both. We are all specially trained and ready to help evaluate your policy options to ensure that the equipment at any business, big or small, is covered and insured. So whether you’re in Johnstown or any other area in central Pennsylvania – and whether you need an entirely new policy or to update the one you already have – we’re here to help you.

Go ahead and schedule your appointment now; our representatives in Blaire County, Cambria County, Somerset, Latrobe, or in any other nearby counties are all ready to help you so that you can go into work tomorrow knowing that even a malfunction in your equipment won’t slow your business down this year.

Why The Polar Vortex Should Have You Thinking About Your Homeowners Insurance

The holiday season may have come and gone, but the weather has remained quite frightful across the country as state after state deals with the residual effects of last week’s Polar Vortex storm. As a direct result of last week’s nationally awful weather, many insurance companies have already seen or expect to see an increase in the number of insurance claims made because of the damages caused by this year’s winter storms.

Last week highlighted that while there are things you can do to prevent major damage to a home in the cold, when extreme weather strikes, even the most prepared of us are at risk for winter weather-related problems in our home; once those accidents or disasters strike, we’ll often find ourselves looking to our insurance plans for help and assistance.

In the case of winter weather, we must rely heavily on policies such as our homeowners insurance, which protects our private property and offers financial assistance when something disastrous happens to said property. A typical homeowners insurance policy will cover damage to a home (and other structures) if the damage was caused by falling trees, wind, or frozen pipes. If heavy snow causes a roof, porch or other structure on the property to collapse, then that damage is often covered as well.

However, as with any insurance policy, depending on what exactly is listed as covered, some damages may not actually be covered by your policy. As highlighted on MSN.com, a few situations that are usually not covered include pipes that have burst as a result of the property owner taking no precautions, seeping water or snow, and damage as a result of backed up storm drains.

So what can a homeowner do to keep these situations from becoming a problem this season? In addition to weatherproofing their home to prevent prevent major damage, as well as taking other winter weather precautions where necessary, homeowners should know exactly what their homeowners policy covers. That’s why the staff at our very own Johnstown-based the Fisher Widmann Flick Insurance Agency (F.W.F Insurance Agency), as well as at our partner Safeco Insurance, are urging you to schedule an appointment now to have your homeowners insurance policy reviewed before another winter storm terrorizes your area.

Work with staff at one of our two companies, and we promise that you’ll leave knowing exactly what is covered in your home and what is not. Plus, if you’re unhappy with your homeowners insurance after speaking with us, we’re happy to work with you to help you find an affordable but still comprehensive insurance plan that won’t leave you out in the cold during this very chilly season.

So whether you’re located in Blaire County, Cambria County, Somerset, Latrobe, or in any other nearby counties, we’re ready to work with you! Contact us now to set up a meeting with one of our local representatives in central Pennsylvania! Our representatives will use their connections to 15 other major insurance companies, like Safeco, to ensure that your homeowners policy is just what you need to protect you from damage caused by severe weather this winter.

Why Even Low-Risk Area Residents Should Consider Flood Insurance

As the state of Pennsylvania prepares for weather forecasts ranging from snow to cloudy to pouring rain, we want to take the time to urge all homeowners to evaluate how protected they would be in the case of a flood.

Each year, flooding is caused by heavy rains, melting snow, inadequate drainage systems, failed protective devices such as levees and dams, and tropical storms and hurricanes. While people living in the areas most likely to experience a flood are legally obligated to purchase flood insurance, lower-risk areas are often left believing that they don’t need flood insurance at all.

The reality, though, is that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) recommends that even houses in low flood risk areas have flood coverage. This is because – as highlighted by stats on FloodSmartnearly 25% of all flood losses occur in low-to moderate-risk zones.

This means that while some areas are at a higher risk than others, the truth is that in the United States, everyone lives in a potential flood zone – floods and flash floods can happen in all 50 states, in any area, at any time. And they do occur more often than we might realize; statistics from the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) reveal that within an average 30-year mortgage timeline, a homeowner has a 9 percent chance of making a claim for fire damage, compared with a 26 percent chance of making a flood damage claim.

But despite the risk of flooding across the nation, and although it only takes one-inch of water to potentially cause thousands of dollars in damages, the majority of homeowner insurance policies don’t cover flood damage at all. This means that for many people living outside of high-risk zones, a single faulty drainage system or heavy downpour could potentially result in massive out-of-pocket expenses.

So this year, as the snow begins to melt and the rain begins to roll in, be prepared: make sure that you’re not left to pay for these potential damages out of pocket should disaster strike. And if flood insurance is a new area for you, then we strongly encourage you to schedule a personal assistance meeting with one of our Fisher Widmann Flick Insurance Agency staff or representatives.

We are all specially trained and ready to help evaluate your policy options to ensure that what you select will keep you on your feet in the event of flooding. Whether you’re in Johnstown or any other area in central Pennsylvania – and whether you need an entirely new policy or to update the one you already have – we’re here to help you. Our representatives in Blaire County, Cambria County, Somerset, Latrobe, or in any other nearby counties are all ready to work with you so that you can go about your day knowing that in the event of the unusual, your insurance will keep you high and dry.

This Year, Resolve To Go Beyond Basic Auto Insurance Coverage

A new year is a time for self-reflection and positive changes. While many do not consider their insurance policies as something that they could change to contribute to a better 2014, our team here at the Fisher Widmann Flick Insurance Agency encourages you to think otherwise this year.

Just one example of something you could change for the better in 2014 might be your car insurance – particularly your liability coverage. Auto insurance liability coverage is often put to the test during the winter, when ice, snow and slush turn roads into obstacle courses. In fact, while statistics show that August is overall the most dangerous time of year to drive, the winter months are still incredibly dangerous, as both nonfatal-injury and property-damage-only car crashes increase significantly when it snows, according to the American Journal of Public Health.

So just how likely is it that your area might experience dangerous road conditions due to the weather, and what sorts of risks might you face when driving in the winter? Well, consider these statistics from the Federal Highway Administration:

-Over 70 percent of the nations roads are located in snowy regions, which receive more than five inches (or 13 cm) average snowfall annually. Nearly 70 percent of the U.S. population lives in these snowy regions.

-Snow and ice reduce pavement friction and vehicle maneuverability, causing slower speeds, reduced roadway capacity, and increased crash risk. Average arterial speeds decline by 30 to 40 percent on snowy or slushy pavement. Freeway speeds are reduced by 3 to 13 percent in light snow and by 5 to 40 percent in heavy snow. Heavy snow and sleet can also reduce visibility. Lanes and roads are obstructed by snow accumulation, which reduces capacity and increases travel time delay.

-Each year, 24 percent of weather-related vehicle crashes occur on snowy, slushy or icy pavement and 15 percent happen during snowfall or sleet.

Statistics like those are exactly why we’re encouraging everyone to take the time this month to complete one simple New Year’s resolution: check and ensure that your auto insurance offers more than basic liability coverage.

 Liability car insurance, which covers what happens to the other driver’s vehicle in a crash where you are at fault, is so important that it’s required in most states. Typically, liability insurance is most often offered in two categories: bodily injury liability (which assists with medical bills and lost wages in an accident) and property damage liability (which offers help when paying for damage a property sustains during an accident).

Not all auto liability coverage is created equally, though. Often, liability policies don’t even cover other major expenses that can be incurred during an accident. For example, basic liability coverage rarely offers damage coverage for your own vehicle – and only covers damage to the other car! It also often does not cover damage caused to you or your possessions by an uninsured driver, or comprehensive coverage of medical expenses incurred as a result of an automotive accident; instead, it offers a fixed amount of money that may or may not be enough to keep you from paying a lot out of pocket.

In short: if you get into a serious accident with basic liability coverage, you may find yourself paying for some or even all of the major expenses and claims that result from that accident all by yourself – and that is always more expensive than the cost of comprehensive insurance plans. That’s why we don’t believe that it’s worth the risk of owning basic liability auto insurance. After all, that car you bought was an investment. Surely it – and you – deserves the best protection possible, especially during this dangerous season.

This year, make it your goal to supplement or even replace your basic liability policy with comprehensive coverage that goes beyond the state’s minimum requirements. If you’re not sure where to get started, don’t fret: our staff is ready to help you evaluate your policy options to ensure that what you select offers adequate coverage that will truly protect you should you experience troubles on the road. We offer personalized assistance and have numerous local contacts across the state ready to help you at a moment’s notice. We also have connections with 15 major insurance companies, including our newest partner, Safeco Insurance, a Liberty Mutual-owned company that will work with our team to ensure that your liability insurance goes beyond the basics.

Remember, whether you’re in Johnstown or any other area in central Pennsylvania, and whether you need an entirely new policy or to update the one you already have, we’re here to help you. Our representatives in Blaire County, Cambria County, Somerset, Latrobe, or in any other nearby counties are all ready to work with you so that you can continue driving with peace of mind during this wonderful, but risky, time of the year.

Sail Smoothly Through The Winter With The Right Boat Insurance

As the air grows chillier and the holidays are approaching, most of Pennsylvania’s proud boat owners have already placed their beloved watercraft into storage for the winter. With these vessels set to sit indoors for several more months, we urge any and all local boat owners to make sure that in addition to being properly stored, their vessels are properly insured.

Whether you have a bass or fishing boat, a cabin cruiser, a ski boat, a sailboat or pontoon, any boat owner should have a separate policy fully covering their boating needs. Don’t assume that your boat already has coverage through your auto or homeowners policies; this is often not the case, which is why a separate policy for your watercraft is incredibly important. Additionally, with about 20% of all boat claims occurring during the fall and winter months – when boats and watercraft are most susceptible to fire, theft, vandalism, transportation damage, and sometimes even liability issues – having insurance that provides year round, on- and off-water coverage for your watercraft is an absolute necessity.

Our staff at the Johnstown-based the Fisher Widmann Flick Insurance Agency (F.W.F Insurance Agency) believes that if you’re a boat owner, both your time on the water during wonderful weather and your time off during the chilly months should be relaxing and worry free. We understand the importance of having a solid boat insurance coverage plan that ensures you’re protected at all times, not just during the summer months when you and your friends are enjoying a water-side vacation.

Our partner, Safeco Insurance (a Liberty Mutual-owned company), understands this as well. That’s why we’re working together to help you buy the perfect policy to ensure that your vessel, and even some of your boating-related personal effects, will be covered and protected year-round. Work with our staff, and we promise that you’ll be able to find an inexpensive plan for your boat that ensures your vessel, your boating gear, and even your friends and family are covered both on land and in the water, year round; in fact, SafeCo offers high-quality coverage that lasts an entire year, as well as roadside assistance coverage that ensures your boat will also be covered in the event of an emergency tow.

Don’t look at the winter as a time-out from protecting your treasured boat; talk to one our representatives today for personalized advice based on what kind of water vessel and gear you own. Whether you’re located in Blaire County, Cambria County, Somerset, Latrobe, or in any other nearby counties, we’re ready to work with you so that you can plan your next summer by the water knowing that you’ll be covered when you’re ready to set sail, no matter what happens during the off-season.

Contact us now to set up a meeting with one of our local representatives in central Pennsylvania! Our representatives will use their connections to 15 other major insurance companies, including SafeCo, to ensure that your boat’s policy is as comprehensive as possible.

No One Home? Insurance For Vacant Buildings And Lots Is A Must

If you own a vacant home or empty plot of land, you probably have big plans for that property; you’ve also probably put up ‘No Trespassing’ signs for the time being. The next question to ask yourself, then, is: have I properly insured my property to protect myself, as well as my big plans for that space?

These days, having insurance coverage for any unoccupied space you own is a necessity. At first, it may seem that an empty plot of land or building would not need insurance if it were not in use, but this is not the case; in fact, because these areas are unoccupied, empty buildings or lots carry their own risks and liabilities.

Image a scenario where locals might see an empty lot as a shortcut on their way to work, or teenagers might see a deserted building as a cool place to hang out. Should anyone fall or hurt him- or herself on your vacant property during their fun, based on current case law, you could be sued for damages, no matter how many ‘No Trespassing’ signs you’ve posted around the area.

The only way to truly protect yourself from a potential liability suit is to make sure your vacant lot has vacant land insurance, or that your empty property has vacant property insurance. Both types of polices are usually very affordable, and both are designed to protect your best interests.

Vacant land insurance was designed specifically to protect you financially up to a certain liability limit in the event of an accident on your property, and can be used should someone hurt himself or herself while passing through or playing in the deserted space. Vacant property insurance, on the other hand, is designed to protect an actual structure, and so will often cover damages to a building caused by both natural and manmade disasters, including fire, storms, civil commotions, vandalism, and so forth.

The need for these types of insurance is not limited to individuals or landlords, either; others who may need to insure their empty space include:

-Homeowners who are moving but still own their old house
-Real Estate Investors who are overseeing properties that have lacked tenants for over 60 days
-Banks, mortgage companies, or contractors who are holding completed or repossessed properties or lots that have not sold yet

The good news is, insuring your vacant property or building may not be that difficult! In some cases, it’s an easy as extending a homeowners policy, purchasing an umbrella policy, or simply buying vacant property insurance for a couple of months. And with the right insurance agent, getting this done can be incredibly simple.

We highly encourage anyone who owns a vacant building or lot to talk to a member of our Fisher Widmann Flick Insurance Agency staff; we can find out what the most cost effective solution to your insurance needs really is. Don’t let your property pose a risk any longer; whether you live in the Johnstown area or even in Blaire County, Cambria County, Somerset, Latrobe, and any other nearby counties, if you contact us today, our local staff members will meet with you as soon as possible to evaluate your specific needs and make sure that you’re protected.
