Does it cost anything for me to sign up?

What kinds of assets can be covered?
New assets are being added to the policy process all the time, including the following categories:
When is the insurance valid for each asset?
The coverage of the assets is immediately valid because the new assets are added to your master policy. You will be able to print an insurance certificate directly from the instaCOVER website and can include this certificate in your documentation package.
How is the insurance charge paid?
When you provide information to instaCOVER on the asset, you will also provide bank account or credit card information for the customer. instaCOVER will collect the insurance charge by completing a direct debit or credit card transaction for the customer.
How can the insurance coverage be cancelled?
Coverage can be cancelled by the customer at any time when it is no longer needed to fulfill the contract requirements. You can email, fax or mail the required information that other coverage has been secured. The information that is required to cancel the insurance is as follows:
What if my customer already has insurance when instaCOVER is placed?
If the customer cancels the insurance and provides existing proof of insurance within 30 days of contract date the policy written by instaCOVER will be cancelled and all premiums which were collected back to the inception date will be returned to the customer in the same method as payment was made, ie., if the premium payments were made from the customer’s credit card they will be returned to the customer’s credit card.
Who provides the insurance underwriting?
Insurance for instaCOVER is provided through a major insurance carrier, who is a premier insurance provider continuously rated “A” (Excellent) or higher by the A.M. Best Company.
Are the premium rates competitive?
The premiums supplied by the insurance carrierare competitive with insurance commercially available for these assets.
What happens at the end of term?
The term of the contract is supplied to instaCOVER with the application. Three months before the end of term instaCOVER will notify the funder and the lessee or renter that the insurance policy will be cancelled at the normal end of term. If no response is received from either the funder or the lessee, then the policy will be cancelled automatically by instaCOVER at the end of the contract date. Another letter will be sent notifying both funder and lessee that the policy has been cancelled.
What happens if the rental or lease contract ends early?
If the customer cancels the rental or lease agreement early they can notify instaCOVER of the expected cancellation date. instaCOVER will notify the funder of its intention to cancel the insurance. On the cancellation date the insurance will be cancelled and the customer and the funder will be notified.
