Insurance is a requirement for all leased hardware with a residual value. (Here you can read more about leasing). There are usually a few different choices you can make to choose the insurance that suits your business. Below we present the alternatives that currently exist, but be aware that not all alternatives may be selectable for your particular company.
As previously mentioned, you need to opt for an insurance policy to be able to lease hardware in Velory. Leased products can be insured either through the finance company DLL, AppleCare + or via your company's own insurance.
Insurance from DLL
DLL insurance is always standard for a company. This means that the insurance from the DLL is automatically added if you have not made an active insurance choice. This means that if a user places an order in your portal, the insurance from the DLL will be added automatically.
If your Velory provider offers AppleCare +, you can choose it as your default insurance when your employees shop in Velory, instead of using DLL's insurance.
Not all Velory providers can sell AppleCare + as insurance - in these cases, AppleCare + will not appear as an option in the list when you set up your default insurance. This is because AppleCare + only appears as an option in Velory if your Velory provider offers this as an option.
Your company can also use the company's own insurance on leased products. If your company already has insurance that will cover products that are leased in Velory, and that you have an agreement in place about this with DLL, then select the option "Private insurance according to agreement with DLL".
If your company already has insurance that will cover products leased in Velory, but you do not have an agreement for this with a DLL, contact your Velory supplier for information on how to proceed so that your company can use its own insurance. As part of that process, DLLs can request that your company send them insurance certificates and insurance confirmations. Once DLL has approved this, they will no longer apply their own insurance to products that you lease in your company.
