    You could; it's probably covered under standard business asset/property insurance.

    You might also wish to consider 'business interruption insurance' in case your business loses revenue due to destroyed equipment.

    Yes, we've purchased insurance both on the hardware and for interruption of service. I can sleep better at night knowing that our hardware is insured.

    does this cover theft?

    Cafe Manager: Free lunch? Did you read the fine print stating it was an April Fool's joke.
    Patron: I read the same way I listen, I ignore the parts I don't agree with. I'm suing you for false advertising.
    Cafe Owner: Is our lawyer still working pro bono?

    The coverage is in effect for Fire, Theft, Employee Dishonesty and pays for us to replace all lost objects including loss of income for the down time

    The value and max payout of each item (including off-premises property) depends on many factors including how much you pay the insurance company.

    Greetings:

    We insure our co-located equipment through our local insurance company.

    Check with your local chamber of commerce for whom they recommend.

    Thank you.

    im not entirely sure how you are able to get machines collocated without having general business liability insurance. every single colo contract i have seen, including ours, requires that the client have liability insurance.
