With affordable, effective engineering and plant insurance protecting key assets, you're provided with the reassurance you need to build your business.

RBIG Engineering & Plant Insurance Solutions

Whether you own or hire in engineering equipment, plant insurance can help you get the job done should the unexpected happen.

What would the cost be to you  if a thief cherry-picked a cherry picker? If the hydraulics on a scissor lift cut out? If a worker dug a digger into a hole?

Plant insurance, also known as plant machinery insurance, will protect you against theft, unexpected breakdown and accidental damage. This can be whilst you're already on site, your own premises or transporting equipment to a job.

We  can arrange cover for a wide range of plant and construction equipment, including:

  • Backhoes
  • Bulldozers
  • Cherry-pickers
  • Compacters
  • Concrete mixers
  • Cranes
  • Diesel generators
  • Diggers/ mini-diggers
  • Excavators
  • Fork-lift trucks
  • Road-rollers
    Road sweepers
  • Scissor lifts
  • Trenchers
  • Wheel loaders

Contract works insurance

Contract works insurance is also available for building contractors and property developers, as well as  builders, plumbers, electricians, carpenters and other construction workers who are responsible for completion of works.

Subject to your cover limit, this will meet the cost of reinstating your work should it be damaged or destroyed through things like vandalism, fire, extreme weather events or theft. We can also arrange to extend cover for delayed start-up following damage after theft 

Over many years, RBIG's commercial insurance team has gained extensive experience within the construction and allied sectors. We understand the variety of risks you may face and, through long forged partnerships with key insurers, how to secure effective, best-value cover for your business.
