Frequently Asked Questions
What does Riggers Liability cover?
Riggers liability covers damage to your customers goods while on the hook. Our policy will actually provide coverage in transit as well. Riggers liability coverage can be added to general liability as an endorsement or on a separate inland marine policy.
What is crane insurance?
Crane insurance often refers to physical damage coverage on you cranes. It’s similar to comp and collision on a car. Usually this coverage is found on an inland marine policy. The cranes you own must be specifically scheduled with their values. Since cranes are so expensive, you want to make sure all perils are covered. Cheaper policies may exclude things such as fire or flood.
People also are talking about crane rental coverage, which would be the same physical damage coverage but for cranes you rent. You can often get an equipment rental limit of $1 million and increase if it necessary.
What does crane insurance cost?
Rates very across the country and generally increase in metropolitan areas. On average you can estimate between 1% and 3% of the crane’s value. So to insure a $1 million crane for physical damage, a 2% rate would cost you $20,000.
What type of crane operations do you cover?
