Not happy with my equipment insurance provider

I’ve had a policy with the Hayes Group for last 4 years. Just received a notice that they are lowering my rental coverage from $15,000 to $10,000. That barely covers a typical low budget rental.

If anyone has any great experiences with an exceptional company, please post.

If not, let’s keep this thread short…sorry but I hate getting continuous emails about issues that barely relate to the topic of inquiry.

There’s an insurance company in Ontario that’s fairly good. They have a lower annual premium and deductible compared with Hayes.

Call them and ask about ‘Photo pac’

Hey Naomi. I have the PhotoPac insurance from CG&B as well. It’s good comprehensive coverage, with $25,000 in rental, if I’m not mistaken. The woman you want to speak to is Louise Jones, and her number is 905-479-6670, email louisej@cgbgroup.com

I think this might be a problem that both of you are insured by a Canadaian company. As a Canadian myself, I’m not dissing Canada in any way, but don’t think the coverage will work in the US. Thanks for your help though.

I don’t think it makes a difference. From what I remember they cover worldwide with liability and rentals. I was insured with Hayes before and they had no problem insuring someone in Canada.. Trouble is there’s not a whole lot of companies out there who insure pro camera gear without paying through the nose.

Does anyone have experience with Hill & Usher? I’ve been considering signing up with them to protect my gear.

Tom C. Pickard and Co.

They primarily deal with photogs and movie makers.

It’s who I use. No claims here yet (knock on wood), but I’ve heard good things.
