A major factor in pricing for your special event is the event location. When determining rates for coverage, our carrier will look at past weather records at that location over the years to determine the likeliness of rain at that location on the day of your event. Being that this is one of the most important elements in your policy, it is extremely important that when you move forward with the policy, the weather be recorded accurately that day! US Weather Insurance offers three options when it comes to measuring the weather the day of your event.
The first and most popular method is the closest national weather station, usually the closest airport to your event. This option is always determined on your quote and is free of charge to use. In the case of a claim we will pull the records from the weather station by the hour sent that to the client. This method is extremely convenient for those event in a major city or close to the airport however for a lot of events, that is not the case. The second option we offer is a third party Doppler radar system that will pull the records based on your specific event location. This option is mostly used by clients whose location is more that 10-15 miles away from the national weather station. For this method the rainfall can be pulled sometimes instantly through an app on your smart phone! The third option is for the client to bring in an approved individual to measure the weather at the event used approved instruments. This method requires an application to be filled out and approved by the carrier. To find out more on the different claim verification’s, give us a call at 888-982-5488.
