Liquor Liability Insurance
Serving alcohol at a special event or owning a business that serves alcohol always involves an element of risk. Liquor liability insurance protects your company against loss or damages claimed as the result of a patron of your business becoming intoxicated and injuring themselves or others. If your business manufactures, sells, serves, or facilitates the use or purchase of alcohol, then you need liquor liability insurance coverage. The State of Massachusetts under a newly passed piece of legislation requires that all entities that hold a liquor license carry liquor liability insurance.
As your agent we can answer any questions you may have about insuring liquor liability for your bar, grill, tavern, package store, supermarket, club, restaurant or temporary events. We can tailor make a total business package policy for your specific business that includes liquor liability or write a stand-alone liquor liability policy for you.
Boiler & Machinery / Equipment Breakdown
This form of insurance provides important mechanical breakdown coverage generally not available under any other insurance policy. A boiler and machinery policy can protect an insured against the effects of catastrophic property loss, such as steam boiler explosion or an expensive breakdown of machinery and equipment.
It is not just the physical damage caused by the explosion or breakdown that’s of concern. While repairs are being made, valuable time and profits are lost. Business interruption coverage protects against this. Often, extra expense coverage is required to keep the business in operation regardless of cost.
Consequential Damage and Refrigeration Interruption insurance protects against spoilage as the result of a breakdown. Many times these business interruptions, extra expense and spoilage losses can be much more extensive than the damage to the equipment itself.
Equally important is the valuable inspection service that boiler and machinery insurance provides. Not only does this service satisfy most jurisdictional inspection requirements, but it also benefits the insured by providing sound loss control recommendations that can help assure efficient operation and longer equipment life.
Bonds / Surety
A surety bond or surety is a promise by a surety or guarantor to pay one party (the obligee) a certain amount if a second party (the principal) fails to meet some obligation, such as fulfilling the terms of a contract. The surety bond protects the obligee against losses resulting from the principal’s failure to meet the obligation.
We sell many types of bonds, such as:
- License & Permit Bonds
- Contract Bonds
- Bid Bonds
- Business service bonds
Most bonds can be issued immediately from our office.
