Whatever you call your cherry picker – whether that’s a boom lift, basket crane, or MEWP – you still need special types insurance cover for it. While this handy machinery is pretty safe to use, it’s essential to have the correct insurance in place to protect both your workforce and equipment in case the worst should happen.

What is cherry picker insurance?

Cherry picker insurance is a special types policy designed to cover MEWPs, sometimes known as Aerial Work Platforms (AWPs). 

Since there is a myriad of risks posed to you, your colleagues, and your business when using MEWPs, a standard insurance policy just won’t give you the coverage you need. 

Special types insurance, which is aimed at businesses operating MEWPs, will give you peace of mind and make sure you’re not out of pocket in the event of an accident, injury or machinery damage. 

What does cherry picker insurance cover?

The three main types of cherry picker insurance coverage are:

  • Third-Party Only: Cover against damage, injury or death to other people or their property. This does not cover the named person on the policy. 
  • Third-Party, Fire & Theft: The same as above, including fire, theft and attempted theft cover for the named policyholder.
  • Comprehensive: All of the above, including accidental damage. This level cover can vary from insurer to insurer.

If you’re unsure of the level of cover you need, don’t panic. We’re happy to guide you through the process of insuring your cherry picker and machinery at an affordable price. Find out more about cherry picker insurance and get a free quote now by calling us on 0800 081 6053.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a licence to operate a cherry picker?

To use a cherry picker, you need a standard car driving licence. It’s not obligatory to have a special license to operate a cherry picker, but you need to have the correct training to use them.

Many employers will require you to have a qualification by the International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) to operate the machine safely.

Additionally, qualified cherry picker operators should also have a Powered Access Licence card (PAL card) to show they have knowledge and experience in using this type of MEWP. 

Why do I need cherry picker insurance?

Cherry picker insurance can be a financial lifeline for your business when something unexpected happens, such as an accident or theft. Even with all the safety precautions and training in place, accidents can and will happen.

Since cherry pickers are often used in construction and maintenance industries to provide access to hard-to-reach areas, there is a significant amount of risk involved when operating them that standard insurance will not be able to cover.

How much does cherry picker insurance cost?

Cherry picker insurance premiums will depend on the type of cover and extras you need, as well as the insurer you opt for.

Our insurance experts will be able to compare quotes and advise you more about the different types of coverage available.
