Including Mechanical Engineers, Sound Engineers, and Audio Engineers

We categorize this operation as a multifaceted role, encompassing roles like stagecrafters, audio and lighting engineers, and live event producers, among others. Our agency offers a flexible program for rigging operations that can be customized to meet your precise requirements. This specialized insurance tailored to the entertainment industry covers various scenarios, such as mishandling audio or lighting equipment, resulting in injuries from sound system failures, and numerous other incidents causing bodily harm or property damage.
Typically purchased on an annual basis, this comprehensive insurance package encompasses a wide array of protections. These include liability coverage, property coverage, automobile insurance, and coverage for rented and owned equipment, among other provisions.








Do you design lighting configurations for live concerts?

You may not be involved in the actual putting together of the event, but you should have a policy that is similar in nature, ensuring that such operations are accounted for in the policy.

Are you placing scaffolding?

Many events use some type of staging for the support of its actors, athletes, etc. but some of the more theatrical type of events or concerts could utilize scaffolding. Such activities need to be discussed with your broker. Give us a call or send us a note today!

Audience Participation Technology Integration

We see these operations during a production that involves televised or pre-recorded taste tests, daytime talk shows, and gameshows. Occasionally we hear this type of system be referred to as an ‘ARS,’ or Audience Response Systems. If you fall into any of these categories of entertainment and production activities, we can certainly help.

Doghouse Operations

Recording studios and subcontractors that record audio and mix audio could fall into this category. Gig workers that operate the mixing board during a live concert, production, or event could also fall into this category.

Lighting Array Installations and LED Wall Construction

With many electronic dance festivals, multi-unit TV walls are normal and customary. If there is a wrap-up insurance policy for the festival or event, chances are this exposure would be insured under such a policy. However, if you are a 1099 contractor hired to install an LED wall, you may need (or be required to carry) this type of stage crafters insurance coverage.

Truss Installers

If it sounds risky, insurance companies like the ones that spend large percentages of their budget on marketing probably aren’t able to help with your insurance adventures.

Staging and Stage Crafting

Are you in the business of setting up stages for concerts, events, or for any other reason? If so your business brings with it many exposures that could result in significant bodily injury and property damage. It is highly recommended that your business become a member of safety associations for not only premium credits but also credibility with your insurer. When you purchase the right staging insurance there are many claims that could be covered (make sure you read the entire policy, of course).

Stageline Owners and Stage Trailer Operators

If you own a Stageline Trailer, you should have a very specific policy. If you own one of these Trailers like the SL250 or even the SL100, you need very specific coverage to make sure your liability and property exposures are property insured. You can contact us in a multitude of ways and we really try to make it easy and quick.

Installation of Artwork

Many public installations of artwork were actually placed by a contractor specializing in such an activity. Such art can take the form of an oversized tapestry draped across hundreds of feet of high rise buildings. Or maybe just a small modern sculpture that needs to be hoisted and placed using a skid or small crane. Chances are if you handle and install small non-crucial pieces that are owned by others, you could qualify for a lesser expensive option.

Production Design

Typically with Production Design there is a consultant the helps facilitate where a stage should be, or where specific audio equipment for a concert should be. In the event that a claim arose due to a stage collapsing or a piece of equipment falling, the individual or business that planned the design could be held liable.

You could Need this Coverage...Why?

Most insurance policies for business operations can be extremely narrow in scope of coverage pertaining to O.P.P. If you are in the business of installing Other Peoples Property, and you are in the entertainment or production industry, Staging and Rigging Insurance could be your proper classification. Whether the term OPP (other peoples property) is used, or ‘The Care, Custody, Control, of other Peoples Goods while not in the possession of the owner,’ the fact still remains that standard insurance policies exclude such activities.

Insurance Certificates at your Fingertips

Once you become a customer, we will get your account activated so that you may complete your own certificates of insurance, even in the middle of the night if you want. If you would rather us complete your certificates of insurance we will happily oblige, just let us know. There are times when you will need the help of our entertainment insurance office to complete a certificate of insurance.
