Now Offering Product to Small and Mid-Size Fleet Crane and Rigging Operators


Richfield, OH - September 9, 2016 - National Interstate Insurance Company, a leader in specialty insurance programs since 1989, announced that it has expanded its current Crane and Rigging insurance program which is available for mid to large companies with a new product focusing on small to mid-size Crane Rental and Rigging operations.

All of its Crane and Rigging products, including this newest offering, are uniquely tailored to meet industry needs and include auto liability, physical damage, workers’ compensation, general liability, motor truck cargo, excess, property, and cyber liability. National Interstate offers these insurance products through an open retail distribution network and is actively seeking producers to market and service the new program, which is available immediately.
