aba can arrange specialist insurance cover for engineering plants. Engineering insurance covers your plant equipment against damage or breakdown and will also provide Inspection Services to fulfil your requirements under Health & Safety legislation.
This type of policy also covers your business for loss of income sustained when your plant cannot operate as a result of accidental breakdown or damage to your equipment.
Our insurance policies can also provide cover for ‘hired in’ or ‘hired out’ plant. This insurance cover applies whether you are hiring a very large item with a value of millions of pounds or a small item such as a mobile generator. The policy will also normally include cover for any continuing hire charges associated with equipment hire which will be invoiced by the plant hire company under their terms and conditions.
If you are moving your workshop or any of its component plant items, aba can insure you for the move, no matter what the size or value of the items you are moving. We can offer an engineering insurance policy for a complete plant move if your workshop is relocating to a new building or site.
Engineering insurance from aba typically includes the inspection of your plant for safety. Your insurer’s inspectors will check large cranes and other lifting equipment, forklift trucks, items powered by air or steam pressure, air conditioning systems, power presses and electrical systems. Typically the inspectors will then issue any necessary safety certificates required by health and safety legislation.
