We’re committed to helping companies of all sizes start and successfully scale their drone operations. We know that there are a lot of factors to consider when bringing drones into your projects, especially for larger enterprises who are aiming to reduce risk and ensure compliance.
That’s why effective drone insurance is a must-have for many businesses, and today we’re excited to share a resource with customers who are looking for drone insurance. Harpenau Insurance offers comprehensive drone insurance options from Global Aerospace., the underwriter. Global Aerospace is a leading underwriter of aerospace insurance, with nearly a century of experience working with the aviation and space industries.
Harpenau Insurance can now work directly with 3DR customers to provide Global Aerospace insurance to policyholders. They have agents you can contact directly for exceptional service, and can turnaround a quick and accurate quote for your aerospace operation. They can also provide quotes for all other required coverages for your business needs. “We couldn’t be more thrilled to kick off this partnership and make enterprise-ready insurance available to 3DR’s customers in the construction and engineering industries,” said Evan Garmon, Commercial Agent at Harpenau.
The main coverage for drone operators is for legal liability and physical damage. At minimum, legal liability coverage is for the cost of property repair and injuries to people caused by an accident on-site. Coverage can be accessed in a self-service portal, where customers can choose between different options and coverage levels and then get a personalized quote within one to two hours on average.
There’s additional coverage available on the drone insurance policy, if appropriate for your business, including: personal injury (invasion of privacy), non-owned liability (crashing someone else’s drone or a rented drone), medical expenses, premises liability, and damage sustained from any malicious acts.
You can also get coverage for the drone itself, which covers the cost to repair equipment or to cover the total loss of the platform, payload, or ground equipment.
