What risks does a lighting gear rental policy protect against?
Lighting gear rental policies typically protect covered equipment against several potential risks that could result in loss or damage. These can include perils such as:
- Damage during transit
- Weather-related damage
- Fire or smoke damage
- Water damage
Covering damage during transit is particularly important for many situations, as when the equipment is being taken to/from an event location is often one of the most likely times that it could be damaged.
Does lighting gear rental insurance cover accidental damage?
Some lighting gear rental policies do offer coverage for accidental damage, but not all do. This too is an important protection to consider and check for. It’s especially if lighting equipment is frequently put up/taken down, such as on a tour.
A knowledgeable insurance agent can help check that both in-transit damage and accidental damage are covered by a chosen policy.
How much does a lighting equipment rental policy cost?
The cost of a lighting equipment rental policy is based on factors such as the equipment’s value, rental duration and covered risks. Policies vary in premium cost, but they tend to be quite affordable. A custom quote will show how much insuring a specific rental will be.
