When either a lake or ocean marina gets hit by a disaster, there’s more than property damage at stake. Surprisingly, storms, wind, and water are not the only cause of marina property damage; fire from a boat can extend to the dock than to the restaurant and marina. Environmental concerns arise, as gas and oil pour into the water from damaged boats and jet skis. State and national agencies ascend onto the property to clean up the chemicals. Many questions and issues arise: Is there damage to boats, bulkheads, wooden piers, docks, bait shops, stores, and the sea wall? Do you have any idea when your marina will reopen again? Let United Public Adjusters calm your fears.
In many cases, the community loses money as a whole since the marina employs many townspeople. In fact, it’s not just the marina that can be affected, restaurants and gas stations are also at risk. If the marina is shut down for months, the financial impact on the community can be devastating. The shutdown can also impact tourism, which also affects the community.
With damages extending beyond the physical, owners need to have experts on their side who understand commercial marine operations and commercial marine insurance. United Public Adjusters not only understands the marina industry but has expertise in inspecting and analyzing damaged property unique to marinas. Additionally, UPA works with the owners in mind at all times and maximizes their recovery under their insurance policies.
