Price is 100% dependent on your unique situation.
The price for coverage is based on 2 factors.
To find the premium for your policy, simply follow the formula below. Please note that a 3% credit card fee will be applied in addition to the total premium.
$100,000 (Equipment Value) x 8.0% ÷ 365 days = $21.92
$21.92 x 10 days = $219.20 Total Premium
*Disclaimer* Every policy is different. Therefore, the pricing is subject to change. Below is some specific information regarding minimum pricing and structure.
The deductible is dependent upon the value of the machine.
We will cover equipment that is valued at up to $250,000. If equipment is valued higher than that, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can look at your case more closely.
However, for any equipment valued below $250,000, the deductibles are as follows.
Equipment valued from $1,000 – $99,999 = $2,500 Deductible
Equipment valued from $100,000 – $250,000 = $5,000 Deductible
In select cases the deductible may be higher due to the scope of work. We will evaluate each deductible rate on a per policy basis. The deductible rates are subject to change.
Rental Shield™ is physical damage that protects the piece of equipment. Even though Rental Shield protects against the most common causes of accidents, it is not liability coverage.
However, we are in the process of building this coverage option. If you have any questions about liability coverages, please get in touch with us.
Our claims advocates work hard so that you don’t have to. We take care of the paperwork so you can get back to work.
Don’t panic. We can change the certificate of insurance.
Sometimes the equipment dealer will unexpectedly deliver a piece of equipment to you that is different from the one that you obtained coverage for.
In this instance, just call 1 (512) 866-7651 (option 2) and tell us the new information (make/model/serial number).
As soon as we deliver the COI to you, the equipment will be officially covered by Rental Shield.
* Please do not use the equipment until you have an updated certificate of insurance. The serial number that is on the certificate will be the only machine covered by Rental Shield.
