KINGSIZE “HOUSE INSURANCE”
Insurance is included in our equipment day rate, but the following information applies.
a. USING OUR POLICY: If you don’t already have an insurance policy covering you for Hired Goods up to the value of the Kingsize goods hired, then opt in for the Kingsize Insurance.
In the event of a claim, your Excess will be $1000+gst. This excess, or any loss or damage less than the Excess will be charged immediately to the credit card we have on record.
You will need to immediately fill out a Claim Form, and supply any accompanying facts. This must be done within 24hrs of the incident, or upon return of equipment.
The person who booked the hire is responsible for any insurance process and financial liability. We do not accept 3rd party management of this process.
b. USING YOUR POLICY: If you do have an Hired Goods policy, please email us a Certificate of Indemnity with Kingsize Studios Ltd listed on it. It should be noted that the excess is paid by you and not Kingsize. Your broker, or insurance company can supply this on demand. Send this to firstname.lastname@example.org
In this case, any claim must be settled within 7 days of the incident.
c. FRESH WATER, SALT WATER, UNDERWATER: A condition of the policy is that any underwater housing must be successfully tested in the proposed or similar filming environment within 24 hours prior to actual shoot. Failure to do so will jeopardise the response of the policy to any potential claims.
Excess $1,000+gst each and every loss increasing to $2,500+gst for water related damages
d. DRONE, AERIAL: Operating instructions and procedures must be supplied to Insurers prior to confirmation. Excess minimum $1,000 each and every loss in respect of the Drone, any Aerial Device and any equipment attached or being used with the drone.
You must take all reasonable precautions to prevent destruction, loss or damage to property or bodily injury and comply and ensure that your employees, servants and agents comply with all statutory obligations and by-laws or regulations imposed by any public authority for the safety of property or person.
e. HAZARDOUS USE: Hazardous Activities means any activities, conditions, special effects, hazards or stunts which may materially increase your exposure to risks. You must advise any activity that may be considered Hazardous prior to uplifting goods.
f. OVERSEAS EXCESS: Kingsize House Insurance offers photographers the ability to take equipment overseas without arranging their own specific extension. This must be arranged prior to uplifting goods. In this case the excess is $2000+gst.
