Full text: Use and occupancy insurance

when, by so doing, the Use and Occupancy insur- 
ance loss can be reduced. This means that the 
expense of moving irito temporary business 
quarters and the many other extraordinary ex- 
penses incidental to emergency operations would 
be met by the Use and Occupancy insurance 
contract. In some instances, an immediate 
replacement of machinery or stock would in- 
volve special costs of production or delivery of 
such machinery or stock. - Special expenses 
such as these are met by this form of insurance. 
Tt should be noted that the insurance company’s 
liability under this item is limited to an amount 
not in excess of that to which the loss under the

stock and restore it to its state of manufacture at 
the time of the interruption is a factor to be carefully

require an additional period to replace a part or all of 
its stock before it can resume normal operations. The 
loss of business earnings resulting from this additional 
period of suspension may be covered under a Use and 
Occupancy insurance contract. The extent of this 
additional period depends upon the nature of the busi- 
ness under consideration and deserves special attention 
when selecting an appropriate contract of Use and Occu-
