Case Study

After working for other construction company owners all his working life, Craig starts his own small earthmoving firm. In the first couple of years he borrows money and invests much of his income back into the business, buying the latest equipment and a work vehicle.

After starting work on a new construction at a new site, he leaves his tools and equipment locked in a garage on the site overnight. But that night, thieves break into the garage and steal Craig’s tools, worth $25,000.

Craig contacts his insurance broker who helps him put in a claim. He’s quickly reimbursed for his loss, so he isn’t out of pocket and can keep his business running.
