Each Plant & Equipment policy will have its own inclusions stipulated—this can vary from policy to policy. However, typically if your machinery—such as an excavator—has been properly secured overnight then you will be covered if it’s stolen or damaged. Talk to our brokers & advisors today to find the right insurance for you with the inclusions you deem important to your business’ operational demands.
Each insurance company has its own risk appetite and exposure profile. This means that not all insurers provide insurance for every industry. Particularly with the major insurers, you may find that your business falls through the gaps. As brokers, we can assess offerings from lots of different insurers, including those that insure niche industries and non-typical businesses. Insurance brokers have the flexibility to shop around to try and find the right policy that covers your unique requirements.
‘Agreed value’ is a common term used by insurers. Under many polices, including Plant & Equipment Insurance, when your insured equipment is stolen or deemed a ‘write-off’, the insurer will agree to pay out based on its ‘market value’. An alternative to this is to agree on a pay-out value for your equipment upfront when taking out the policy. Doing so will typically affect the cost of your premiums.
