Flood protection for local business and landlords in South Yorkshire as Storm Christoph looms
19th January 2021
A major incident has been declared in South Yorkshire as Storm Christoph hits. It is set to bring widespread flooding so IFM Insurance are reminding local businesses and landlords about FloodFlash.
This new flood insurance is available for businesses and landlords in South Yorkshire and across the UK.
FloodFlash uses advanced risk-modelling and mobile-connected sensors to remove the costs, time and uncertainty associated with traditional flood insurance and works in three simple steps:
- Firms choose a bespoke trigger depth and pay out values for their cover
- A FloodFlash engineer installs a mobile-connected sensor at a signed up firm within 14 days
- When a flood reaches the agreed trigger depth, FloodFlash sends the firm an agreed settlement in full
Jamie Harvey, Director of IFM Insurance Brokers said: “Storm Christoph is yet another timely reminder of the devastating affect flooding can have on firms and landlords across South Yorkshire. With businesses and landlords not having access to FloodRE and often struggling to get general flood insurance, this new solution provides peace of mind and cover which is not available elsewhere”
