Pollution Accidents Happen
Vela is the BEST at Handling Them

The BERKLEY ENVIRONMENTAL SUPPORT TEAM (BEST) is available to Vela’s customers who’ve taken advantage of our Contractors Pollution Liability (CPL) enhancements for General Liability policies.
 
This Value-Added Service is a 24/7 call center fully staffed with experienced professionals to assist following environmental spills and releases.
 
BEST has a nationwide network of emergency responders that can be dispatched to our insured’s location - within 2 hours - at pre-negotiated rates to keep our customer’s costs down.
 
It’s simple – Our insured calls BEST to report an environmental spill or release.  BEST gathers all pertinent information then brings a local emergency responder into the call.
 
BEST even files any necessary incident report(s) with the proper environmental agency(ies) on your behalf. 
 
This benefit is included with Vela’s Pollution Coverage extensions for construction practice policies, energy business, and manufacturers with installation exposure.  The customer is billed separately by BEST for emergency response services rendered.​​

Products and services described above are provided through various surplus lines insurance company subsidiaries of W. R. Berkley Corporation and offered through licensed surplus lines brokers. Not all products and services may be available in all jurisdictions, and the coverage provided by an insurer is subject to the actual terms and conditions of the policies issued. Surplus lines insurance carriers do not generally participate in state guaranty funds and insureds are therefore not protected by such funds. This material does not amend, or otherwise affect, the provisions or coverages of any insurance policy issued. It is not a representation that coverage does or does not exist for any particular claim or loss under any such policy. Coverage depends on the facts and circumstances involved in the claim or loss, all applicable policy provisions and any applicable law. Availability of coverage referenced in this document can depend on underwriting qualifications and state regulations.

Vela Insurance Services conducts business as Vela Insurance Services, LLC in California as a licensed surplus lines broker

(License Number 0C94218).
