Plant machinery insurance can cover a myriad of risks, from accidental damage, breakdowns, theft, and other types of losses. The main types of insurance for plant and machinery are:

Frequently Asked Questions

What is classed as plant and machinery?

With so many different types of plants and machinery, it can be difficult sometimes to know exactly what should be classed as this type of equipment.

Examples of plant machinery include conveyors, cranes, forklifts, bulldozers, excavators, generators, compressors, and industrial mixers.

These machines are often used in industrial, manufacturing, and construction to complement each other and work together as part of a wider task.

Why do I need plant and machinery insurance?

With plant machinery playing an important role in your day-to-day work, insurance is necessary to avoid financial losses and keep your business running smoothly. After all, this type of equipment is a significant investment that affects both your performance and profit long term.

Plant machinery parts are often very expensive to repair and may even be difficult to replace if the equipment requires specialist equipment and care. What’s more, machinery breakdowns or damage can result in a substantial amount of downtime for your workforce and your business overall, leading to loss of revenue and productivity. Eventually, all of these elements can even cause your business to stop completely.

Taking out a special types insurance policy designed for plant, machinery and MEWPs can minimise the financial impact of these risks and give you a helping hand if you need to repair or replace equipment so work can resume as soon as possible.
