Frequently Asked Inland Marine Insurance Questions
What Is Inland Marine Insurance?
Inland marine insurance is imperative if you transport valuable materials, tools, and equipment on land by truck or train. Most standard business owners’ policies exclude these high-value items. Inland marine insurance will protect your business property that is transported, warehoused, or used for communication purposes. Repairs or replacements of your portable business property that may be destroyed or damaged by an outlined peril are covered under your policy, so it is important to understand what perils are covered. New Redwood Insurance Services will walk you through the covered “perils” in your inland marine insurance and suggest any changes you should make to your existing business owner’s policy.
Does my business need inland marine insurance?
Inland marine insurance is protection for high-value specialty equipment, tools, and products that are being shipped from location to location, or being temporarily housed in storage. Even if your Business Owner’s Policy or your Commercial Package Policy covers these items, this type of policy usually covers property that is housed in a single location. These policies do not cover the specific more high-valued items. If your business frequently ships high-value items, materials, or equipment, an Inland Marine Insurance policy would be right for you.
