Equipment Breakdown Coverage Options

Equipment Breakdown Coverage – Included

Equipment Breakdown insurance covers exposures that are usually excluded from other property policies. It’s important to have this coverage since the breakdown of insured components is normally very expensive to replace or fix. Specific equipment breakdown hazards you may be at risk to include:

  • Electrical systems
  • Computers
  • Phones
  • Boilers, Fire and unfired pressure vessels,
  • Mechanical equipment.

Also, this coverage includes protection from the risk of professing technologies, usually not offered by other insurers.

This includes:

  • Microelectronic coverage for invisible risks
  • Off-premises transportable equipment coverage
  • Cloud service interruption
  • Data restoration for data lost in the cloud due to an accident
  • Public relations coverage.

Equipment breakdown coverage also includes coverage for business interruption (covers income lost due to a breakdown), spoilage (covers for spoilage of food or other perishables following a breakdown), E&O, data restoration (data that is lost or damaged in the cloud), and green coverage (restores recognized standards to equipment and property).

Data Compromise and Identity Recovery – Optional

While all businesses are targets of data breaches. Small to mid-sized companies are more vulnerable and less prepared to respond to them. Data compromise covers the costs associated with notifying those affected. As well as includes professional support to respond quickly to maintain business relationships and reputation.

A stolen identity can cost a business owner hundredths of time off their business, while the restoration process can cost thousands. Identity recovery helps business owners navigate the restoration process faster, and with fewer complications. It also pays for the costs related to restoring identity to pre-theft status.
