Purchasing Commercial Equipment Insurance in Florida


For Tampa Business: Commercial Equipment Insurance

Commercial equipment insurance covers the cost of repairing or replacing business equipment when loss or damage occurs. If you own a business that relies on machines, heavy equipment, or specialty tools, purchasing commercial equipment coverage is vital. It is especially important to purchase this insurance if you run your company on a commercial property you do not own. Even if you own the property you operate business on, commercial equipment is not covered under general business insurance policies.

It is important to note that equipment insurance policies do not cover leased equipment in Florida State. In order to make an insurance claim on commercial equipment, you must own the equipment listed on your policy. Therefore, if you need coverage for any leased equipment, you must contact the insurer of the company who owns the equipment you are leasing. If you own all of your commercial equipment, purchasing an equipment policy is the best way to ensure that your items will be fixed or replaced quickly when losses occur

There are many losses that are covered under equipment insurance. Electrical wire burnouts, machine burnouts, compressor failures, fan and blower break-downs, cracked pipes, overheated machinery, property damage, property loss, interrupted business due to hazardous fumes or equipment malfunctions, and general machine repair are all covered under equipment insurance policies. General equipment, such as air conditioners, is also covered under this type of policy. Basic commercial policies and fire policies do not cover break-downs or equipment damage, which is why purchasing this insurance is essential

Purchasing commercial equipment insurance will give you peace of mind while running your business. You’ll never have to worry about enduring a financial loss due to equipment malfunctions. Repairing and replacing heavy machinery and electronic devices is costly, and operating your business without ‘the essentials’ can negatively impact on your business’s bottom line. Unfortunately, accidents occur frequently and all machines eventually need repairs. The best way to protect your business and finances is to purchase quality equipment insurance.
