Safeguard Your Restaurant’s Success: The Power of Equipment Breakdown Insurance

Equipment Breakdown Insurance

Since your restaurant depends on equipment to keep it going and to maintain a revenue stream, a breakdown could have devastating financial implications. Problems with your business equipment can be risky if you are not properly insured.

A standard property insurance policy will not cover these types of losses, but equipment breakdown insurance—formerly known as boiler and machinery insurance—will cover your restaurant’s mechanical, electrical, and computer equipment from unexpected breakdowns.

These policies are flexible and help organizations recoup financial losses related to property damage, business interruption, and spoilage. In addition, these policies offer organizations the following benefits:

Repair cost coverage—Following an equipment breakdown, organizations may have to pay thousands just to get their business up and running again. Equipment breakdown insurance can help soften the blow, reimbursing organizations for the cost to repair or replace damaged equipment due to an accident.

Expediting expenses—Repairing complex equipment in a hurry can be an expensive endeavor. Most equipment breakdown insurance policies cover any expenses needed to speed up the repair or replacement of damaged property, including the cost of temporary repairs.

Protection against business interruptions—In virtually all cases, equipment failure disrupts a business. In some instances, these disruptions are quantifiable, leading to lost revenue and productivity. Equipment breakdown insurance covers some of these costs, including income lost as a result of a covered accident. What’s more, this protection is in effect until the equipment is repaired or replaced.

Coverage for perishable goods—Following an equipment failure, food-related businesses experience some of the most direct losses. Food industry equipment is not only expensive to repair and replace, but a restaurant can lose thousands of dollars of product if a freezer or refrigerator fails. Thankfully, equipment breakdown insurance provides adequate protection and covers food spoilage, manufactured goods, or other perishable items after a covered incident.

Problems with your equipment can be extremely risky if you are not properly insured. Contact us today to learn more about equipment breakdown insurance.
