With mechanical workshops, recent OH&S legislation requires that new plant fixtures and equipment need to be taken into account.

Smart Broker PRO Tip: It is important to note when providing information on insured values that premium savings for a partially insured workshop or service van won't make a great contribution to covering any shortfalls if you are underinsured.
