The commercial transportation or shipment of cargo can be a daunting task for operators. Regardless of the type of equipment or products you are moving, unforeseen perils can cause physical damage to the cargo. As a result, operators are exposed to a multitude of legal liabilities and can be left holding the bag for damages that occur while in transit.
Inland Marine Coverage provides protection from the financial losses associated with property being shipped.
When your products are being shipped from manufacturer to marketplace, it is important to ensure they are fully protected from departure to arrival. Cargo insurance provides financial assistance should cargo be damaged or lost when travelling by land, sea or air. It can also limit a commercial operation’s exposure to liability resulting from the shipment of products.
Contractors, photographers and landscapers couldn’t do their job if they weren’t able to bring the tools of their trade with them. However, standard property insurance doesn’t cover equipment when it’s off site or in transit. Without the proper insurance in place, commercial operations can be exposed to costly repairs or replacement when their equipment is damaged or destroyed. Equipment Floaters coverage can help limit the impact to your clients’ bottom line when accidents happen.

Installation Floaters coverage can help limit the impact to your client’s bottom lines when accidents happen.
