Leased/Financed Equipment

If you are financing or leasing equipment through a bank or other institution, you will find that you are required to provide proof of coverage or they will place your insurance with a pricey broker. 

You can apply for the Owned Equipment policy to insure your leased/financed gear. 

After you have purchased your policy, you will need to generate a Certificate of Insurance for the financing company which includes your lease number and the specific equipment you are leasing/financing. 


Listing your Leasing/Financing Vendor as Loss Payee Only

If you are being asked to list the vendor as "loss payee" only, it means that your financing institution requires you to have both property coverage coverage only. 

You can apply for the Owned Equipment policy through InsureMyEquipment.com and generate a COI immediately after policy purchase.

Add Custom Wording on a COI  

Sometimes companies will ask us to list specific information in the 'Description of Operations' box or in the 'Comments' section of a Certificate of Insurance. This is possible, but unfortunately can't be done online. 

If you need custom wording on your COI, please email support@insuremyequipment.com with the following information:

Subject: Custom COI 

Provide: -Your policy number and name 

                 -Company name, Address, Email, Contact Name 

                 -What is required in the Description of Operations section. 

Or even better, forward over the email you received from them which includes the insurance requirements and custom description wording. Allow up to 24 business hours for custom COI requests
