The median premium for inland marine insurance is $169 per year (less than $15 per month). The median offers a more accurate estimate of what your business is likely to pay than the average because it excludes outlier high and low premiums.
The median generic limit for inland marine insurance is $5,000. The higher the generic limit of coverage, the higher the premium. Professionals with expensive equipment choose higher limits and pay more for increased protection.

Consultants and building design professionals such as architects and engineers who use more expensive equipment pay even higher premiums.
