When it comes to special types of machinery like cranes, standard insurance just won’t cut the mustard. The best way to protect your machinery and your business is to be prepared for any scenario with crane insurance specifically made for your equipment.
What is crane insurance?
Crane insurance, also known as special types insurance, is tailored coverage for your machinery that will protect your business from financial losses resulting from accidents or other incidents.
As cranes are normally used to lift debris and heavy objects in fairly hazardous environments, there is a significantly higher risk for the public and your employees working with this heavy equipment.
Without the right insurance cover, expenses can quickly pile up in the event of an accident, and your livelihood may suffer as a result. This means that there will be a higher amount of coverage available with a crane insurance policy than with a standard vehicle policy.
What does crane insurance cover?
With a crane insurance policy, you can choose from the following cover:
- Third-Party Only: The minimum cover required by law. This covers the other party only if their vehicle or property is damaged or in the event of injury.
- Third-Party, Fire & Theft: The same as above, including cover for your crane in case of fire, theft and attempted theft.
- Comprehensive: All of the above, including accidental damage.
