What are your Backhoe Insurance Requirements?

For example , how does your existing backhoe loader policy compare on the following criteria?

Material damage: market value PLUS basis of settlement, new replacement benefit following total loss for machines purchased new for what period?, accidental overload, dry hire, unspecified attachments up to what value?, substitute machines, transit cover, non – aggregation of excess, no blame excess and more

Additional benefits available?: Damage to lifted goods up to what level?, expediting costs, indemnity to hirer –wet hire, road risk, and more.

Broadform liability: Property in physical and legal control sub limits, hook liability sub limits, vibration and removal of support sub limits, dry hire, damage to underground services and more

The cost of insuring your backhoe depends on a number of factors including the level of coverage you require, the sum insured, sub limits, claims history and backhoe attachments.
