Am I covered?
If you have liability insurance to cover the market, then you could be covered. If not, you would have to pay for the damages from your own pocket. Some claim settlements can be quite large and you could lose your savings or even your home to cover the losses.
It depends. BCAFM requires 3 to 5 business days to review and approve vendor applications in the BCAFM Vendor Membership Program. Once approved and BCAFM has processed your $75 payment, completing an insurance policy via the Duuo website is instantaneous!
The $75 BCAFM Vendor Membership Fee is an annual fee that must be renewed each year before you are eligible for preferred group rate insurance benefits.
