Plant and Equipment Insurance

With valuable heavy equipment comes specialist needs. Cover liability, damage to machines and lost profits under one tailored plant and equipment insurance package.

What is Plant and Equipment Insurance Insurance?

Plant and Equipment Insurance otherwise known as Industrial Special Plant (ISP) is designed to provide protection for industrial equipment. It’s ideal for industries such as civil works, agriculture, manufacturing, construction and mining.

ISP is typically a packaged form of insurance; it often includes cover for liability of business activities, loss or damage to machinery/equipment, and lost revenue if a machine is damaged and unable to work. 

Whatever your business activities, a comprehensive package will ensure your assets and operations are shielded from the unforeseen.

How can we help?

With access to a range of quality insurers, and policies not available to the public, we can offer you a range of competitive quotes. 

We’ll help you compare the price with the coverage offered for each, so you can make the best choice for your equipment and activities’ protection. 

You’ll also receive recommendations for extras for your highest risks, so you’re not paying for a policy that doesn’t cover what you need. For every new business quote and renewal, we break down all important changes and comparisons for you in plain English. 

Plant and Equipment Insurance claim example

Jonathan operates a small earthmoving business with a tipper truck, excavator and skid steer loader.  He takes out an ISP package with his broker to cover these vehicles and his public liability.

A good contract comes up where Jonathan wins the tender.  Part of the job requires a dozer – so Jonathan hires one in and lets his broker know so it’s noted on his policy.

The dozer is vandalised while left on site, and unsafe to use.  Jonathan’s ISP policy will pay to both repair the hired in plant, as well as the additional costs he has to pay the hiring company while it is out of action. Knowing that this is all covered, Jonathan is able to hire another dozer to keep work progressing on his contract.

    We've been using Consolidated Insurance Brokers for quite a few years now. I would certainly recommend them to everyone. Whenever I have a question, nothing is too much trouble. From my original working with Sheryll, … More to more recently with William and now our recent working with Karen with a claim that we needed to make. She was there every step of the way for us, answered all my questions and provided guidance for us. And she coordinated with our insurance company. As I said, we would not hesitate to recommend, very professional all the way. (Montezuma's Ipswich)
