Equipment breakdown insurance is a type of insurance policy that provides coverage for unexpected breakdowns of machinery and equipment used in your business. It can help cover the costs of repairs or replacement and help mitigate any losses due to business interruption.
Equipment breakdown insurance is ideal for businesses that rely on machinery and equipment to operate. This includes manufacturing facilities, restaurants, retail stores, and many other types of businesses.
Without equipment breakdown insurance, your business could be left to cover the full cost of repairs or replacement of damaged equipment. This can be a significant financial burden, especially for small businesses that may not have the cash reserves to handle unexpected expenses.
Equipment covered under Equipment Breakdown coverage may include :
- Pressure objects including boilers, hot water storage tanks ,and air receivers,
- Mechanical and electrical objects including motors, transformers, and generators
- Electronic objects including telephone systems, x-ray equipment, computer processing, and fibre optic cables
- Production machinery and apparatuses that process, form ,cut, shape, grind or convey raw materials, materials in process ,waste materials, or finished goods and any equipment forming part of the driving or controlling mechanism for such production machinery or apparatus
Coverage can vary depending on the specific policy, but equipment breakdown insurance typically does not cover normal wear and tear, maintenance costs, or damage caused by employee negligence.
