Equipment Breakdown Insurance

Equipment Breakdown insurance, commonly referred to as boiler and machinery insurance, covers the costly physical and financial damage that can result from an equipment breakdown. Equipment Breakdown insurance can pay for: Direct Property Loss (the cost to repair or replace damaged equipment); Lost business income and costs for temporary replacement equipment; Other expenses incurred to limit the loss or speed restoration of operations; The loss value of spoiled products or materials; Business recovery expense.

Standard property forms typically exclude the very losses that equipment breakdown insurance is designed to cover – not the specialty coverage offered by Chamber Insurance Agency Services.
