It's understood that Equipment Breakdown should be an essential part of a business insurance program. With most equipment containing fragile and sensitive technology that can be easily damaged, Equipment Breakdown is a common and great risk. With increased system complexity and interdependency, a remote breakdown can impact you.

What is equipment breakdown coverage?

Equipment Breakdown insurance pays for financial loss incurred when equipment breaks down due to an accident or electronic circuitry impairment. It works a lot like property coverage, but covers the unique risks of equipment and technology. Equipment breakdown insurance covers equipment accidents from risks of loss such as power surges, short circuits, centrifugal force, boiler overheating or cracking, and mechanical breakdown.
