Can I Include Liability Coverage In My Mobile Plant & Equipment Insurance Policy?

Yes, liability coverage can be included in a Mobile Plant & Equipment Insurance policy for most businesses. This protects your business from claims of third-party injuries or property damage caused by the operation of your equipment. Businesses need to safeguard against such risks, especially when operating heavy machinery in public or on various work sites.

How Does Business Interruption Coverage Work With Mobile Plant & Equipment Insurance?

Business interruption coverage in a Mobile Plant & Equipment Insurance policy compensates for the loss of income and additional expenses your business incurs following loss or damage to insured equipment. This coverage helps maintain financial stability when your operations are disrupted and is especially beneficial for businesses that heavily depend on specific machinery.

What usually isn’t covered?

Exclusions, the excess you need to pay and limits of liability can vary greatly depending on your insurer.

Public & Products Liability Policies generally won’t include cover for:


Cost of rectifying faulty workmanship


Damage to your own product


Claims by employees


Claims arising out of the use of a registered motor vehicle


Claims related to asbestos

Case Study

During a large excavation project at a construction site, one of Mark’s employees accidentally struck an underground utility line, causing significant damage and disrupting utility services in the area.

A claim was filed against Mark’s business to cover the costs of repairing the damaged utility line and compensating affected customers for the service disruption. Without insurance, Mark faced overwhelming financial liability.
