North Carolina Response Rating (ISO): Class 2

We are pleased to announce that during the recent North Carolina Response Rating (ISO) inspection, the City of Cherryville's classification has been raised from Class 4 to Class 2.

This rating will be effective as of April 01, 2018 and could help to lower insurance premiums.

Commercial, industrial and manufacturing businesses are more likely to be in line for these reductions, but both homeowners and businesses should contact their insurance carriers to see if a reduction is applicable in their particular case. This possible premium reduction will depend on the insurance carrier and the characteristics of the particular structure being insured.​
