What does plant and machinery insurance cover?

Plant and machinery insurance is there to protect you if something happens to your critical machinery. Cover may include accidental damage, vandalism or even theft. Whatever option you take, it can give you peace of mind that your key operations can continue uninterrupted.

I hire machinery. Do I still need insurance?

Yes. You are responsible for the safety of any machinery while it is in your possession. Therefore, if it suffers damage, you will be responsible for getting it repaired or replaced. However, if you hire machinery, it may affect the length of time you need to take out insurance for.  The cover for hired machinery is known as Hired In Plant insurance and can cover the cost of replacing the damage machinery together with any continuing hiring charges you may be liable for while the item of plant is replaced.

How much does plant and machinery insurance cost?

Costs will vary depending on the size of your business, how much machinery you need, its value and the number of people working on your site. Ultimately, the insurance provider will be assessing you as a risk to see how likely you are to make a claim and, if you do, how much they will have to cover. 

You may limit the amount of cover on offer in order to reduce monthly premiums, but this can be risky. Although you may be paying less in the short term, you may have to pay more if machinery is damaged.

What machinery is covered under plant and machinery insurance?

We realise that every customer’s plant and machinery insurance needs are different, so we cover a wide range of machinery. This includes everything from diggers and dozers, to loading shovels and looms. If you operate from a business premises you may also have fixed machinery which you need to insure.  If you are unsure whether your machinery will be covered, please don’t hesitate to get in contact with us.
