Inland Marine Insurance Provided By Our Agency

Don't be misled by the word "inland marine." In contrast to "marine insurance," which covers products while transported over water, inland marine insurance protects goods when moved over land, such as by truck or rail, or when a third party temporarily stores them. The two most prevalent causes of inland marine losses are collisions and cargo theft.

What you should know about Inland Marine Insurance

Inland marine insurance is a type of business insurance that helps cover products, materials, and equipment transported on land, such as by truck or train. In addition, moveable commercial property utilized for transportation or communication is intended to be protected by this coverage.

The cost of repairing or replacing portable commercial property destroyed by one of the insured perils is assisted by inland marine insurance.

Perils that may be covered by inland marine insurance may include:

  • Theft
  • Water damage
  • Fire
  • Wind
  • Hail

In addition to the above, an inland marine insurance policy may provide additional coverage for specific situations. For example, this may include protection for:

  • Mysterious disappearance: Missing property where the cause of the loss cannot be discovered.
  • Accidental drop and damage: Property losses are caused when an item is dropped or mishandled, either in transit or loading/unloading.

What does Inland Marine Insurance cover?

Your Business:

If your business needs specific equipment to operate, you will be protected under Inland Marine insurance. This can be anything from construction equipment to medical supplies to art and photography equipment.

Your Customers:

If your clients leave their property in your possession to be stored, they will be covered for physical damage or theft of the property while it is in your care.

Your Vendors:

Any company that rents or leases equipment to you will require that you provide insurance coverage for the product while it is in your possession. However, they are protected under your Inland Marine coverage as they will repair or replace lost equipment.

Who needs Inland Marine Insurance?
