Finally, you put the two together, and then find an Insurance Company that you feel is trustworthy.

Not all Companies are the same, so of course they will all offer the same basics, and then some will offer things that others do not.

These are usually the basic coverage that the majority of Computer Insurance Companies will offer:
-Accidental loss or damage
