During a construction project, plant and machinery can be more susceptible to losses during transit and movement. Theft, fire and damage caused during transit and movement are all common risks and can cause significant interruption to a project if they occur.
Our Machinery Movement cover is designed to cater for the loss and damage caused to plant and machinery during the transit and installation process. Principally targeted at haulage contractors and manufacturers, the cover is also relevant to businesses that move and re-site machinery on a regular basis.
Our Machinery Movement coverage provides:
- cover for one-off moves or an annual basis
- cover for machinery dismantling, loading, transit, unloading, erection, positioning, re-siting and taking out operations
