When a loss to a commercial property happens, it affects much more than the property itself. It affects a business, which impacts your income, and your livelihood. Most commercial property owners count on the insurance company to properly adjust the loss and pay whatever is necessary to restore the building and allow your asset to continue to produce income. Keep in mind, the insurance company adjuster’s job is to pay you the minimum amount necessary to cover your loss. In other cases, an insurance adjuster simply does not possess the skills and experience necessary to fully investigate and pay what is owed.
In many of these cases, a commercial property owner will bear the loss and payout of pocket in order to resume operations.

Most commercial property insurance policies cover:
Property damage: This includes more than just the building itself. This also includes materials, inventory, furnishing, machinery, and fixtures.
Extra expenses: This covers any expenses incurred while taking the loss and increased costs to continue business during this time. It can also reimburse a policyholder for any money that was spent to move their business to a different location while the other property is repaired or restored.

It provides funds that are needed to sustain the business while operations are suspended. The contingent extension of this coverage is to cover any lost profits or other expenses that result from damage to a third party’s property for instance if they deliver their products or manufacture them for you.
