Dry Cleaners Insurance


Insuring through CNR Insurance:

We know Dry Cleaners!  We have been insuring them for a long time.  Our markets for dry cleaners are second to none.  After a loss is the wrong time to find out if you don’t have the right coverage.

Protecting Your Investment

Providing service for your customers is what your dry cleaning business is all about.  Your customers depend on your high quality standards.  Your store location is the hub of your business.  It’s where you work with your customers, store your records and house the equipment that keeps your operations running smoothly.

If a fire in your building shuts down your business for two months, would you want your insurance to pay for lost income and key employee salaries?  If that same fire damaged your customer’s clothing, would you want your insurance company to pay the replacement cost for each and every garment without regard to a limit?  Or what if that same fire caused a chemical spill?  Would you want your insurance to not only pay for the clean-up, but defend you as well if a liability claim were to arise?

At CNR Insurance, we offer customized protection like this using a handful of carriers that have proven they have the coverage forms and expertise to insure your Dry Cleaning operations.
