Mobilist covers roving computers

WITH every man and his dog carrying a portable computer, technology finance company Equico Equipment Finance has rejigged its mobile insurance offerings.

The company has renamed a policy first launched in 2000 under the brand CPF Insurance to Mobilist to catch the eye of owners of portable hardware like notebooks, handheld PCs, data projectors and digital cameras.

Company director Paul Beattie says in spite of the new name, the product retains the features of its predecessor and remains available through Tech Pacific.

The policy is an ideal sell-on for resellers to offer customers purchasing mobile devices, which are often not adequately covered by traditional insurance policies due to the large excesses they attract, says Beattie.

The increase in sales of notebooks in New Zealand will fuel uptake of the policy, he adds.

“Unfortunately, notebooks are more susceptible to theft or damage than desktops. It makes sense for people and companies to protect what is key to their livelihood,” says Beattie.

The Mobilist package is a pre-paid policy, which is activated with customer and product details at point of sale.

A recommended retail fee of $430 provides three years’ protection against loss or damage on equipment, valued at up to $5000 in New Zealand and overseas, with an excess of $100.
