We've Got You Covered with Coverage You Need
With the equipment you hold and manage for customers there is a deal of financial risk that occurs with everything under your roof. With workers on the move with the equipment and potential damage to your building, there is much to cover in case there is need for repair or replacement. Possible injury on the job needs coverage for medical costs while also preventing employee lawsuits in those events.
If your equipment rental business is sued, you'll be glad to have General Liability insurance. This equipment rental insurance will safeguard your business against "general" claims for bodily injury, personal injury, advertising mistakes and property damage. This insurance will help pay for the legal expenses including attorney fees and court settlements.
Business Owners Policy
Business Owners Policy (BOP) is an insurance package that protects the specific needs of your business. It combines the protection from the major property and liability risks in one convenient plan. This means that you'll receive better coverage with more savings in the long run as you don't need to purchase individual equipment rental insurance plans.
In the event of a data breach, your customers' personal information like addresses and credit card numbers can be exposed. Cyber Liability will help you get back on your feet afterward. This insurance will help pay for the costs of customer notification, credit monitoring and other expenses associated with the data breach including the court costs, and penalties.
Your equipment rental business needs trucks and service vehicles to transport the rented equipment to your customers. Accidents could be very costly without this insurance. Commercial Auto covers the costs of collision damage, medical payments, rental reimbursement, bodily injury, and protects you even if the at-fault driver doesn't have enough liability insurance to cover your bills.
Workers' Compensation, or Workers' Comp, is a state-mandated insurance that provides medical benefits to employees in the event that they become sick or injured at work. The insurance will pay for the employee's lost wages until they are able to work again. Employees then relinquish their rights to sue their employer for negligence.
Inland Marine covers what your Commercial Property insurance won't be able to cover - movable property. This is excellent for equipment rental businesses as your equipment moves from location to location. As it is transported, it will be at risk of getting damaged or lost. This equipment rental insurance will cover the repair or replacement of the properties in transit.
