Plant hire insurance

Plant hire insurance can cover your legal liability under the terms of a written plant hire agreement to pay the cost of repairing, restoring or replacing the equipment following damage to hired-in plant for which you are responsible:
– at your contract site
– temporarily away from your contract site if it is
– within a securely locked compound, premises or garage
– out of sight within a securely locked vehicle (other than within the hours of 18.00 and 08.00 when the vehicle must be locked and within a securely locked building or guarded security park)
Minus a deduction for wear and tear, within the UK during the insurance period.
