Thank you for choosing J.M. Equipment as your rental equipment supplier.
As the business climate in California changes, we want to keep you up to date on regulations that rental companies are required to comply with in order to maintain proper insurance coverage. For years, general liability insurance was sufficient to cover equipment that was lost or damaged while on rent. This has now changed.
Insurance carriers are now requiring certificates of insurance (proof of coverage) on all rental equipment that is out of the rental company’s possession. This requires us to obtain a certificate of insurance from you insurance carrier, naming J.M. Equipment Co., Inc. as additionally insured for any loss related to the rental equipment, while at your facility or jobsite. These certificates must be provided in advance of the rental delivery.
We encourage you to send us a certificate even if you already have one on file. The new certificate should include language of coverage for “any and all rented equipment” from J.M. Equipment Co., Inc. This will preclude us from having to get additional certificates for each piece of equipment rented.
We thank you for your business throughout the years. You have our promise that we will do everything we can to make this insurance process as seamless and trouble free as possible.
If you care to file this certificate with us in advance, please contact our rental coordinator at (209) 275-6264.
