Machinery and Plant
Machinery and Plant Insurance covers equipment that is essential in, amongst others, the construction, manufacturing and engineering industries. Covering them against theft, damage and fire, helps to keep your business protected.
At Miles Smith, we understand that loss or damage to your expensive machinery can have a major impact on your business. Machines normally represent both a large investment and a key part in any construction process, so losing them for any period of time can have very meaningful consequences. The period between the order and delivery can take many months and the impact to the financial status of the business should be considered. Our machinery and plant insurance will help you return to business as normal as quickly as possible and minimise your financial and reputational risks. We can also cover any machinery that you have hired-in for a project.
- What’s typically covered?
- Construction plant, tools and machinery
- Off-site storage
- Temporary buildings
- Hired-in plant equipment
- Machinery in transit
