Many of our customers who purchase plant insurance or forklift insurance in the UK also take advantage of the following other complementing optional products to ensure they have full cover for their business needs.

Breakdown Cover

An out of action vehicle means lost business so our a range of breakdown insurance cover is there to get you back up and running as quickly as possible. We offer a range of roadside assistance cover and if the vehicle can’t be fixed at the side of the road you will be recovered to a local garage.

Excess Protection

Excess protection insurance covers you against the cost of your insurance excess should you need to make a claim as a result of a fault accident. A choice of indemnity levels mean you can easily select the right protection for your needs.

Business Legal Expenses

Legal protection will safeguard your business against unexpected and high legal expenses and therefore protect your finances.

Is it compulsory to have liability insurance?

If you employ anybody in any capacity it’s a legal requirement to have an employers' liability insurance policy.

Despite not being compulsory, it can be worth taking public liability and products liability insurance as more often than not any principal you contract to will insist on a minimum level of cover to fulfil your contract conditions.

Even if that's not the case, for as little as £60 a year you can avoid having to pay compensation.

Can I pay monthly for my liability insurance?

All our policies can be paid in monthly instalments, however as the premium is usually low it will make more financial sense to pay for the cover in one single payment.
