Should I have Insurance on Equipment Rented?

Should I have Insurance on Equipment Rented?

When renting equipment from Bercon Rentals it is imperative that our Customers are educated on insurance requirements to ensure that theft, damage and personal injury are covered.

While we hope you don’t experience either of these situations, we understand that your work is challenging and accidents can occur. It is for this reason that our clients are required to have insurance in place to cover the units’ equipment on rent. This is for all types of equipment rentals, including atrium lifts, articulating boom lifts, electric scissor lifts, mast articulating boom lifts, one-man driveables, one-man push-arounds, rough-terrain scissor lifts, straight boom lifts and any of our other pieces of equipment

Insurance Benefits Us Both

Working on side of Building

Insurance protects both your company and Bercon Rentals from unnecessary financial loss due to unexpected damage or theft of the equipment. The insurance coverage keeps it simple, both in terms of ensuring your financial loss and administration is limited. By using your preferred insurance carrier you are comfortable with the insurer and their service. 

What Insurance is Required?

A Certificate of Insurance (COI) can be obtained from your organization’s preferred insurer and it should reflect:

  • Evidence of equipment coverage, often referred to as rented, leased or borrowed equipment, ‘Contractors Rental Floater’ or ‘Blanket Leased Equipment’; and
  • ‘Bercon Rentals Inc.’ listed as an Additional Insured/Loss Payee.

Insurance can be established as a blanket amount or limited by specifying the dollar amount or the specific piece of equipment. For ease of business and to support your long-term rental needs we recommend either a blanket amount or a limited amount.
