The locations that you film at will usually want to see proof of your location liability insurance before the property owner will give you access to film. Liability insurance will repair any property damage that your crew causes at a location. This insurance will provide you with a lawyer if you are sued.

The equipment coverage will pay to repair or replace lighting, cameras and other gear that you damage.

The equipment will be covered anywhere in Canada or the USA. You will be covered even if your gear is lost or stolen while travelling.

We will need the following detail in order to provide a quotation:

  • Who is the named insured? This can  either be you personally or your company if you have one.

  • What is your address and e mail.

  • What is the approximate value of the gear that you are renting?

  • How many minutes will your finished project be?

  • How many days will you be filming?

  • Where will you be filming?

  • What is the budget of your shoot?

  • Will there be any stunts or special effects?

We can also provide you with a year of coverage if you have multiple projects and we can cover your larger projects such as a feature or a series.
