Equipment Breakdown Insurance

Protect your business from the unexpected breakdown of essential specialist machinery and electronic equipment with equipment breakdown insurance.

What is Equipment Breakdown Insurance?

If your business relies on specialist machinery, you know how important that equipment is for your ability to operate and generate income. Unplanned machinery outages can cause:

  • Interruption to workflows
  • Damage to company reputation
  • Safety concerns
  • Lost profits
  • Loss of stock
  • Increased need for staff to compensate

Having an equipment breakdown policy tailored to your needs can save you from suffering the full impact of a breakdown.

You can receive compensation for stock spoilage, cover for a temporary replacement, loss of profits and repair or replacement of equipment.

We can help you find an equipment breakdown insurance policy that’s competitive on price and gives you excellent coverage.

Equipment Breakdown claim example

John owns a popular cafe in a busy locale close to the city. During the night, a power surge caused the coffee machine and fridge to malfunction and stop working.

As a result his food and drink stock was spoiled, and the coffee machine unable to be used to make drinks. He discovered this early in the morning an hour before opening and made contact with his insurer straight away.

His equipment breakdown insurance covered the costs of arranging temporary hire of a coffee machine while it was repaired and the loss of his stock which he was able to replace and store in an alternative refrigerator.
