If your business requires equipment and tools be left on site or in a van overnight then you’ll no doubt want to consider business equipment and tools insurance cover. With this policy add on you can ensure that the tools and equipment you need to run your business operation are covered in case of accidental damaged, loss or theft.

How business equipment & tools insurance works
Examples of business equipment & tools cover in action
A £3,000 theft
A trade’s person attending a work site leaves their tools and equipment inside their work van while they take an hour long lunch break. While away from the vehicle and site, two thieves approach the vehicle and after some time are able to successfully break into the vehicle. The thieves are able to make off with £3,000 worth of tools and equipment, all of which are vital to the tradesman’s work on the site. With the business equipment and tools policy add on cover in place the trade’s person in question should be covered for the £3,000 worth of tools, less the policy excess, and equipment that was stolen while away from their vehicle.
