Kentucky's Commissioner of Insurance signed guidance, at the direction of Gov. Beshear, on March, 25th to ensure that Personal Auto Insurance will cover employees who are delivering food for their place of business. This is for businesses that do not normally offer delivery service but are now offering the service due to the COVID-19 shutdown. The guidance is available for download below.
To comply with Gov. Beshear's announcements and CDC recommendations we have closed our office to walk-in traffic in order to limit transmission of COVID-19. If you need to meet with someone to make a payment or discuss your coverage call us at 859-491-5100 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are still open for business, all of our employees are working remotely and have the access they need to assist you.
Many insurance companies are suspending non-payment cancellations of policies due to COVID-19 through the first week of April. If you are our client and no longer working or working in a significantly decreased capacity, call us at 859-491-5100. If you are not our client, call your agent to find out if this applies to you.
Restaurant Owners: Are you delivering food due to the COVID-19 shut down? If you weren't delivering food before you may not have the right coverage in place. Several companies offer an endorsement to cover you with no addition cost if you already have a Commercial Auto policy. Call us at 859-491-5100 or email clines@desmondinsurance if you have any questions.

Here are ways to proactively protect the most important part of your car.
Operating a restaurant requires you to protect your business with insurance. Many restaurant businesses do not have any insurance at all. Thus, in case they end up in trouble, they lose most of their funds, causing them to shut down momentarily or permanently. A business owner's policy, or BOP, is the standard package for those who want to get all the insurance policies that a restaurant needs.
