Who Needs Film and Production Equipment Rental Insurance?

If you rent equipment for a film or production, whether you’re a professional studio or an independent filmmaker, you should consider purchasing rental insurance. This coverage can help protect against damage, theft, or loss of equipment while it’s in use.

Why Do I Need to Insure my Film and Production Equipment?

Even with proper precautions, accidents can happen on set or during transportation, and repairing or replacing equipment can be costly. Without the proper insurance, you may be responsible for paying these expenses out of pocket. Furthermore, some rental companies may not offer sufficient coverage or have exclusions in their policies that may leave a production company exposed to financial risks. Purchasing rental insurance can help mitigate these risks and provide peace of mind for a smooth production process.
