Often confused by non insurance specification writers to mean liability coverage against faulty installations by contractor and artisans and mechanics, it is a policy written to cover equipment and machinery and tools used by such contractors whilst installing their machine,equipment and various other property on jobsites and the floater aspect is that the equipment/tools etc travel from place to place to be re-used and or re-supplied to the next location of services. It is not liability insurance nor is it builders risk as it applies to movable property vs Real property items. It is an essential part of any contractors,artisans or mechanical rigger or installers portfolio of requisite coverage needs.

What is floater policy in insurance?

The term, "floater" generally refers to a policy that is issued to cover specific, high value items. Ordinarily, a homeowners policy, for example, provides only a fixed and limited amount of coverage for all jewelry, and a lower amount for any particular item of jewelry. If you have an item that is worth more than the item limit of the policy, you can insure it for its full value by insuring it on a floater. You will pay a separate premium for that policy, and it may be issued by a different insurer.

What does a commercial insurance floater cover?

A "floater" is typically an insurance endorsement that covers tools and/or materials while they are away from the business.

Typically a commercial property policy covers tools and materials ONLY if they are within 100 feet of the business location at the time of the loss.

You made a claim on insurance for a lost ring and later found it?

You would need to inform the insurance company and reimburse them for the amount paid or give them the ring, your choice. If you don't inform them you are guilty of insurance fraud. This claim would have to be for a scheduled jewelry floater or payment would not have been made. The floater is the only policy that will pay for mysterious disappearance. A normal Homeowners policy without the floater would require proof of break-in to be theft. The floater also has no deductible usually. It does require appraisals of the items covered.
