ShareGrid Drone Coverage Guide

If you're looking to rent a drone on ShareGrid, having the right insurance coverage is essential. Here's what you need to know:

Understanding Drone Coverage Types:

  1. Hull Coverage (Physical Damage Coverage):

    • This is the type of coverage required by ShareGrid.

    • It protects against damage to the drone and any attached equipment during flight. Simply put, your drone is covered if there's an accident in the air.

  2. Liability Coverage:

    • Some insurance providers only offer this, but it's insufficient for drone rentals on ShareGrid. It doesn’t cover physical damage to the drone.

ShareGrid's Insurance Options:

  1. Drones up to $3,500 in Replacement Value:

    • ShareGrid provides a Damage + Theft coverage option.

    • This can be selected and purchased instantly during checkout.

  2. Drones Above $3,500 in Replacement Value:

    • You need to provide your own drone insurance that includes hull coverage.
