Plant & Equipment

If you work with tools or have plant and equipment, you likely rely on them to keep your business running and without them, getting on with your job can be impossible meaning loss of income plus the cost of replacing the tools themselves.

Every trade uses their tools, plant and equipment differently and can have a range of different equipment requiring cover, from:

  • General tools used at your premises and away on-site
  • Bobcats, Excavators and other heavy machinery
  • Specialist machinery or tools fixed to your vehicle
  • Tools, plant or equipment which are left on-site overnight

What Can Be Covered

  • Provides sufficient cover

  • Do the individual and overall limits provide adequate cover
  • Are there any exclusions or conditions specific to how you may use your equipment
