A about a week ago, an RCI agent was speaking with a convenience store owner in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The Tulsa store owner had recently experienced a rather large loss at his store. A few days before, a driver had pulled into the convenience store parking lot. Driving up to the front of the store, the driver pulled into a parking space. However, instead of stopping the driver drove through the front of the convenience store. After realizing what happen, the driver put the vehicle into reverse and drove off. Not bothering to check and make sure everyone in the store was okay, or exchanging insurance information, or speaking with the store owner regarding the huge damages. This driver had just completed a hit and run. And now the Tulsa convenience store owner was left paying for the damages!
RCI Insurance offers insurance to convenience store owners in the five surrounding states; Oklahoma, Texas, Kansas, Missouri, and Arkansas. One thing our commercial agents stress when insuring convenience stores is how to reduce losses on the store’s property. In the story above, if the store owner had invested in parking barriers, chances are the damages to his store would have been much less or not at all.
Look around your store property. Do you have good lighting at night? Is your cash register visible from the parking lot? Do you have parking barriers? What about annual checkups at your store? Is there cooking in the store? If so, is the fire suppression system up to date? These are just a few things that might help protect your property and keep your store in good standing with the insurance companies.
