So...I'm at a scan and things are very routine. I press SCAN on the Ipad, walk into the other room and

!! BANG !!

[Redacted]

My camera fell to the concrete floor. I set it back up, camera was still on and I pressed SCAN again. I worked...

...for a 1/4 of a turn then stopped.

My camera is USELESS. $4,500 down the drain. Business is on hold and I have 17 scans scheduled for the rest of the week that I will have to reschedule.

NIGHTMARE x 10.

The good news is I am FULLY covered for my camera because I bought insurance on it with no deductible.

I am not at liberty to say what Matterport did but I can say they were ABSOLUTELY AMAZING...AMAZING.

Please, please, please...BUY INSURANCE. Don't wait, do it now. BUY INSURANCE.

BUY INSURANCE!!!

Ugh! Please let me know via PM if you would like free referrals of Matterport Pros that you can engage to keep your clients happy (if you do not have a loaner, or some other solution).

Glad you have your Camera insured. For everyone else ...up to $15,000 in camera and related insurance is included in the ...

That would be nice if Dan got fellow local providers to come to the rescue and let you borrow theirs (even for a fee)or do the jobs. It would be great to collaborate too. Good luck!

Great idea ...

@StevenHattan

If you do not already have a solution, the We Get Around Referral Network can connect you with Pros that might loan or rent the Camera to you to complete jobs until you have a Camera replacement.

(Sounds like you have an solution already in place.)

About the free $15,000 Camera and Gear insurance, there are options for other kinds of insurance that comes with the We Get Around Essential Launch Marketing Tool Kit.

We consider insurance coverage essential for Matterport Service Providers, so we included it in the Kit.

How We Do This

The Kit includes a $288 rebate for an annual Professional Active Membership without indemnification in the Professional Photographer of America (PPA) association.

PPA Membership includes:

1. PhotoCare for Basic Equipment Insurance (Up to $15,000) The insurance is provided by their Insurance Partner, Lockton Affinity.
2. Option to buy General Liability Insurance and Indemnification
3. PPA Membership includes a ton of other benefits too, including business forms for photographers

We Get Around curates the essential marketing tools for Matterport Pros to be successful faster.
