    Hi All,

    Hoping for some tips on how to get an insurance policy that covers over $25k in property damage and loss OFF premises. Alone my Monstro would meet or exceed that value and all the small business insurance policies I've seen top out at that number. Are there specific video production insurance companies you use or could recommend that aren't outrageous each month to insure specific items or go up to $50k or more. Thanks for the advice.

    Another one for Athos. Been with them for a few years now. Have never filed a claim but they’re always super responsive. Had a tricky cert situation a few months ago and they really helped out quite a bit.

    They’re also allowing folks to pay in installments during the pandemic.

    Has anyone had to put a claim in through Athos? How'd it go?

    Had a personal epic that took a fall with a covered lens.

    Lens took the hit.

    Lens was worth $1k (only 2 years old)

    Athos couldn’t cover it though I had all my gear value included in my two years of coverage with them.
    Guess there’s some reason? You have to list every piece of gear I have no idea, but they didn’t come through.
