Inland Marine Insurance Overview
When it comes to property insurance, your Commercial package or Business Owners policy provides coverage for your property on your premises and may include some coverage for property off-premises or in transit but it is not designed to adequately cover businesses who routinely travel with goods and equipment, store property off-site, ships goods, or transports property, Inland Marine insurance is the coverage option that you will need. It also covers specialty equipment, such as medical/veterinary equipment, photography and video equipment, Jewelry, and Accounts Receivable.
Inland Marine insurance ensures that your property that is not at your premises is covered in the event of a covered loss while transported over land.
Inland Marine covers the following:
· Property in transit – when being transported over land, the property is covered. This could be for a contractor taking equipment and tools to job sites and while at the job site, property being transported or shipped
· Property stored in a moving vehicle – such as a mobile detailer or food truck
· Property stored away from your covered premises – such as a warehouse, or storage facility but can also be owned property at another location, such as vending machines
· Infrastructure Property – if you own communication towers or bridges, that will also be covered under Inland Marine
