With Machinery Options, you can combine an Inspection service with Insurance cover or simply choose an Inspection only cover. The Insurance aspect includes the cost of repair or replacement of the inspected machinery following sudden and unforeseen damage and/or damage to surrounding property. What’s more, clients can purchase as a standalone policy or simply add to their existing policies.

6 reasons why clients need Machinery Options Insurance
A typical property policy would offer protection against risks such as theft, flood, and fire
Standalone machinery products commonly insure against events such as electrical short circuits, mechanical failure, and motor burnouts, as well as damages resulting from accidental events, explosions, or collapses.
Coverage provided is suitable for businesses of various sizes and sectors
Machinery policies can be customised to address a broad range of risks, ranging from small manufacturing risks to large property owner portfolios.
People make Mistakes
Unlike a property policy, a machinery policy will cover operator errors. For example, when a machine has been set up incorrectly and damage is then caused when in use.
Machinery Insurance can help businesses meet leasing companies’ requirements
Lease agreements often state that it is the lessor’s responsibility to repair or replace machinery if it is damaged or destroyed while in their care.
Financial stability can be safeguarded
Any downtime for any business can result in a loss of income and/or additional expenditure, and many firms may start to have serious liquidity problems within a few weeks of essential machinery being unavailable.
Maintenance is no guarentee
Your client may be meticulous with their inspection and maintenance programmes, but damage does happen and the consequences can be catastrophic.
