Back Pack Drive Reminds me… Why I Love Small Businesses

Posted on: July 25th, 2016 by Herlihy Insurance Group No Comments

As we are all finding ways to enjoy this heat wave, I just have to take a minute to shout out a THANK YOU to our staff members, clients and donating friends.

Check out this pile of donations that we have collected as of today for the Boys and Girls Club of Worcester!

Back Pack Drive

And this is why I love small businesses. We’ve got local people giving back to our communities in a real way! Our donation drive is running until August 12, so you still have time to make your donation.

Many thanks to those of you who have contributed. We could not have done this much so far with out you!

Why We Have Our Business

Posted on: July 20th, 2016 by Personal Insurance No Comments

To put it simply we provide insurance protection for people’s stuff.

During the past ten years our agency has had six total house fires. Typically this is not something that I dwell on in mid-July when half of our clients appear to be on vacation, but this recent fire picture that was emailed to me reminded that anything can happen!

First here is my photo:

Fire on Figure

A few facts about house fires from the National Fire Protection Association…

In 2014 there were 1,298,000 fires reported in the United States that caused $11.6 Billion in property damage.

One home structure fire was reported every 86 seconds.

When I review data like this, I think of all of our families, clients and friends.

  • Do they have enough insurance to replace their home if it is destroyed?
  • Do they have “ordinance of Law” coverage so that they can have the additional funds they may need to rebuild with today’s building code?
  • Do they have all their smoke detectors and or fire alarms working so no one gets injured?

I hope so! If you are not sure, just check in with your agent on these things. It really is worth the effort.

As a business we really do enjoy protecting people’s stuff, but we really need your help to make certain that the insurance protection you select continues to be adequate.
