Quipr – Equipment Insurance
Key benefits at a glance*
Our team has worked hard with our Insurance Partner to develop a competitively priced policy. When comparing policy costs with our competitors, it’s important to note that the policy prepared for our platform is purposely broad, transparent, and provides greater certainty for our users. In addition, we only facilitate individual policies (rather than a group policy) which are bespoke and fit for purpose. We are consciously not taking any shortcuts.

Quipr is committed to facilitating the best rental experience for both owners and renters alike; this includes, to the best of Quipr’s ability as a platform provider, making sure equipment is protected while on any accepted Quipr booking.
Having appropriate insurance in place is an important part of this. As such, Quipr has set up an insurance arrangement for loss or damage to equipment for all bookings made through the platform. The cover protects both the owner of hired goods (beneficiary of any claim payment) as well as the renter (protection against liability for property not owned by you but in your physical or legal control).
The cover has been developed by Intuitive Insurance Solutions specifically and exclusively for Quipr. It is underwritten by certain Underwriters at Lloyd’s.
