What's the difference between scheduled and unscheduled coverages?
Many video equipment insurance policies have a scheduled limit and an unscheduled limit.
The scheduled limit is usually for valuable gear. It normally provides protection for individual pieces of equipment, up to a predetermined amount for each item listed. All individually covered items normally have to be listed on the policy's "schedule."
The unscheduled limit is usually for less valuable gear. The limit normally applies to all non-scheduled (non-listed) gear, insuring everything together. This is a more practical way to insure all of the lower-value items that don't necessarily require their own limit.
Equipment that excees $2,000 in value must be scheduled with details like make, model, serial number and replacement cost.
An insurance agent who specializes in video gear policies can help ensure any equipment that should be listed on a policy's schedule is properly listed.
Do film equipment insurance policies cover equipment when it's off-site?
Our film equipment policies extend their protections to include times when gear is off-site, either being transported between shoot locations or being used outside the studio.
Our policies include worldwide coverage, with the exception of Countries currently under sanctions by the US State Department.
Videographers who work in non-studio settings should be careful to select a policy that does include coverage for transporting gear and using it off-site.
