Reliable Protection for Your Equipment: Plant and Machinery Insurance

        Plant and Machinery Insurance offers protection for manufacturing plants, safeguarding them against losses or damages. Additionally, this insurance plan extends coverage to include liability for third-party claims related to bodily injury and property damage that may occur at the insured construction site throughout the policy period.

What are the Features of Plant and Machinery Insurance?

Here are some features of Plant insurance:

  • This policy provides coverage for the loss or damage to the construction equipment owned by the contractor, including bulldozers, cranes, excavators, compressors, and similar machinery, resulting from accidents caused by external risks.
  • The coverage is applicable regardless of whether the machinery is actively in use or not. It also extends to situations when the machinery is being disassembled for maintenance or overhaul, as well as during the reassembly process.
  • Unlike the Risk Insurance Policy, the plant insurance Policy ensures that the policyholder is compensated for the actual cost of each piece of machinery.
  • Various additional expenses, such as labor, freight, customs duty, and costs related to reassembly and disassembly, are covered by this policy.
  • This policy takes into consideration the value of the machinery before it was damaged or lost, ensuring that the contractor is adequately reimbursed.
  • It’s important to note that if you are underinsured, your claim will only be paid in proportion to the level of coverage you have in place.
