Equipment insurance: own and hired

For production companies we provide an 'all risks equipment insurance' via our scheme with the market leading Film & Entertainment Insurers. Our policy includes cover for accidental damage as well as theft, loss and other perils. The policy provides “new for old cover”. Providing you keep the sums insured up to date you will be supplied with new kit. We can also cover any additional ‘hired equipment’.

Our insurance includes worldwide cover as standard and 24 hour cover for theft from unattended vehicles if you are on a shoot, or travelling to and from a shoot. Our policy includes 13 weeks loss of hire should you lose or damage hired equipment.

Production property insurance

The Production Insurance will pay the value of:

  • Props, Sets & Wardrobe
  • Production Equipment
  • Library Stock

Owned, held in trust or to be used by you in a production that is lost, damaged or destroyed during that production.

The production insurance will also pay the continuing hire charges that you are legally responsible for in respect of Props, Sets & Wardrobe and Production Equipment up to a maximum of 13 weeks.

The production insurance will indemnify you up to an agreed amount for costs you become legally liable to pay in respect of loss, damage or destruction of property of others in your care, custody and control in the course of a production.

Employer liability

The production insurance will indemnify you for damages and related claims that you become legally liable to pay in respect of bodily injury sustained by an employee arising out of and in the course of their employment by you and caused by an occurrence in connection with your business.

Public liability

Equipment failure. User error. Re-shoot - arrrrgggh! Who you gonna call? Williamson Carson (Tom & Matt!) really understand our business of artist management / photo & film production. With an intrinsic understanding of the world in which we operate, how our budgets work and the level of potential exposure we face they were able to tailor a policy that exactly fits our requirements. On top of this, in 2017 they successfully handled a very tricky claim for us. We wholeheartedly recommend them! - John Cross, Peter Bailey Productions, Review From Trust Pilot.

I've been dealing with Williamson Carson for over 20 years having been introduced to them through the Association of Photographers of which I'm a member. When I've had a claim, however complex, it has been dealt with quickly and efficiently and they very much work for you. They really understand the industry and just happen to be a great bunch of people to deal with.

Tom Carson & Williamson Carson have been my insurance brokers for over 15 years. The advice and cover they provides is both comprehensive and realistic. Tom's many years insuring the photographic and film industry means he is never fazed when I throw him last minute curve balls on shoots & on the 2 occasions I have needed my insurance it was dealt with swiftly & professionally. I highly recommend Tom and his team.
