Obtaining an insurance policy is not a simple exercise in placing an order and receiving exactly what you need. While many of the insurance policies fall into a “one size fits all” there are usually some type of customization that must be done to suit budgets and circumstances.

With broad form insurance the protection is available for adding addendum’s to the basic plan. These extra additions do carry a larger premium cost as well as higher deductions.
Importance of Broad Form Insurance
