That’s the thing, he “may” (I’m speculating) have insurance but claims don’t pay out immediately leaving the business in peril.Hopefully he'll make them bigger!
It does sound odd that there was no insurance.
I had over $100K of Professional Film Gear stolen and it took 9 months to get paid... Had to have the lawyer hammer the living shit out of the production’s insurance company to get paid and to be paid the proper amount. Things like this are never smooth... Now have your International shipments completely wrecked and that represents $50K or more... That’s going to take a bit to be investigated and pay off. But again, not sure what exactly happened just pointing out from my personal experience that insurance- if they had it- it takes a bit to pay out.
