Do You Need Marine Insurance?
It’s recommended but not required. You could choose to cover your heavy machinery for 50% or 75% of the value rather than 100%. Just be aware that you would have to pay for out of pocket damage that may occur if you get limited insurance or no insurance at all. We offer:
1.75% of the value of the equipment for FULL coverage, theft, vandalism, total loss, damage with $500 deductible. Total Loss for 1.25% charge for the value of the machinery. Coverage begins when the machinery is loaded onto the ship and ends when picked up and signed for in the USA.
