Protect Your Commercial Equipment With Proper Coverage

You would never go without insurance to protect your commercial property from damages caused by weather or fire. Equipment, in those instances, is also protected. There are many other instances, however, where the breakdown of equipment is not covered under your general commercial property insurance policy.

Protection for Equipment Breakdown

If a key piece of equipment fails to operate properly, it can be very costly for your company. The cost of replacing or repairing the machine itself can be expensive, but the downtime while repairs are being made can cost much more. Income loss and failure to meet customers’ needs can affect your business for years to come.

Equipment breakdown insurance is designed to protect your investment while repairs are being made. In addition to covering the cost of repairs, the equipment insurance may provide temporary replacement equipment, where applicable, and may cover business losses as well.

Proactive Measures to Protect Your Equipment

Equipment breakdown coverage protects your business during the repair process, but there are additional proactive measures you should implement to reduce the risk of machine failure. A routine maintenance plan should be implemented to check each key piece of equipment at appropriate intervals. You should also develop and maintain maintenance contracts on any applicable equipment.
