Mechanical Breakdown Insurance

When you own your own business, it's important to protect your equipment and keep it safe. Obviously, without functioning equipment you lose money and business. This is why it is so important to have your equipment insured. While most business owners see the need for basic insurance, many don't think about mechanical breakdown insurance and all its variables. Including coverage for mechanical breakdowns in your policy helps secure your overall business insurance package by guarding against costly repairs.

Features of Mechanical Breakdown Insurance Policies

Mechanical breakdown insurance can cover lost income due to mechanical breakdowns that happen in your business, including losses due to faulty machinery and vehicles. It is also important to make sure your insurance covers liability. When a mechanical breakdown occurs with your equipment, an employee or customer could be injured. There are many policies that can be applied to various business risks that involve the possibility for mechanical breakdowns and their effects. Fitts Agency, Inc. agents are more than happy to speak to you about your options.

Businesses may also encounter liability issues if an employee or member of the public is injured due to a breakdown. Liability coverage is also essential, especially if you use equipment such as lawn mowers or hazardous construction equipment, or work in precarious locations like scaffolding or rooftops, where an employee or a member of the public could be injured. When you are working on another person's property or business, your personal liability risk increases as well as your liability for damaged property.

Insurance rules vary from state to state and it is important to have an insurance agent that understands these differences. If you work in more than one state, you may need additional coverage. We can help you determine whether or not additional licensure or coverage is necessary.

Call our office to find out how you can be completely covered in the event of a mechanical breakdown. We can help you make sure you have the best possible coverage, including liability that could result from a breakdown. If you are an existing customer, call our office to get an insurance tune-up to make sure your mechanical breakdown insurance policy is up to date.

It's so refreshing to have an insurance agency that actually cares about their clients. I was with a "national brand" company for many years and never knew that I could have other great choices for my home and automobile insurance. These folks are great and I would recommend them to anyone wanting great rates and service.

Before the sun set on April 27 (after the devastating tornado), Forrest Fitts had a team on our roof surveying the damage. Two days later the debris was completely gone, the sheet rock was replaced - even the landscaping was repaired.

When the April 27th tornado struck my business, the Fitts Agency made sure we were covered. Thank you Tim Donahue and your top-notch staff for doing just that. I could not think of a better team than the Fitts Agency, Watkins Construction Co., Inc. and FCCI Insurance to assist Spiller Furniture with disaster recovery.

We favor the Fitts Agency and any of their competitors would truly have an uphill battle to overcome prior to us ever making any notable changes. Specifically to the fact that although we will price multiple sources, we have learned that Tim and his team have been the most helpful and in the long run, equally competitive with anyone we have considered in the past 25+ years.

Mark Rettig - Vice President, AHR Metals, Inc.
Nobody could have taken care of me better than the Fitts Agency after the storm. I've been with the Fitts Agency for over twenty years - home, autos, and my business before I retired. I would never go anywhere else for my insurance.
