The agents who work diligently at V.A.C. Insurance Agency in Brooklyn, NY do not need to watch a video to remember the wake of Hurricane Sandy. Our agents were there, and we remain in the city that never sleeps. New York will never be the same, but we plan on making sure you have the home and flood insurance that you need so that you can move forward after disaster strikes.
Our staff encourages you to be in the know. However, that doesn’t mean that you have to quit your day job in order to read the zoning regulations and flood plains of your Brooklyn neighborhood. Flood insurance is not for household generated flooding situations such as when your toddler overflows the bathtub. Flood insurance comes into play when there is a nasty weather event. Some areas are more prone to flooding than others. For example, if you live near the beach or on a low-lying plot of land, your home is more susceptible to flooding. We will look at the flood plains and zoning requirements to accurately assess your level of vulnerability as well as let you know what your risks are according to the government guidelines.
Brooklyn has a considerable amount of coastal area as it borders the Atlantic Ocean and Jamaica Bay. Several acres are considered wetlands, as well.
The time to act is before you need flood insurance. Make it a point to come in today before the next major weather event like a hurricane comes our way. Please note, it takes 30 days for a flood policy to go into effect. V.A.C. Insurance Agency is located in Brooklyn, NY, and serves New York City and the surrounding areas. We are especially sensitive to the needs of our residents and will make sure you get the insurance you need to protect your home, auto, life, and business.
