A warranty survey is the most common form of tow approval. Warranty surveys arise from the desire of underwriters to limit their exposure to risk. Faced with insuring a tow project, the underwriter may feel more comfortable if they know that a competent surveyor has physically inspected the tug and tow and approved the arrangements. Prior to conducting a tow, Pacific Tug will request our clients to engage an independent warranty surveyor to sign off on all towing aspects including suitability of the tug, the connection, the route, and the tow itself. Our demonstrated history in towage, use of dedicated forecasts and utilising satellite tracking technology on the tow may lead to lower insurance premiums for our clients.
