For orders having a total replacement value above $7000, we ask you to obtain independent insurance. Occasionally, even if you don’t rent one of these items, we may ask you to obtain independent insurance.
We will need to have a certificate of insurance that covers rented production equipment for at least the replacement value of the items on your order. The certificate must name Movo Films INC as an additional loss payee. If you would wish to purchase a short-term insurance, you may visit www.gearpolicy.com to obtain insurance.
We do this because, with high-value items or large orders, our primary worry is that some of our equipment might be stolen from you on a busy set or shoot. With the high value of these items, the amount owed to us if it gets stolen is more than most people can pay out of pocket. The insurance gives us some measure of security that if the equipment disappears, we’ll be compensated.
In case you have your own insurance, we would need proof of insurance. Just be sure that you’re actually covered for rental equipment.
Please understand that the nature of our business does not allow us to wait for insurance companies for payment. We will work directly with the renter to settle financial obligations immediately.
