Portable Equipment Insurance

Portable Equipment insurance can protect professionals who work on the move and carry their office in their laptop bag. This can include valuable items such as your laptop, tablet, smartphone, cables, removable storage devices and cameras.

Claims for misplaced or stolen equipment such as these are common, yet without the correct insurance the cost of replacing these items (not to mention the work stored on them) could be expensive.
