Other types of engineering and machinery insurance we offer…

Forklifts

Forklifts and teleporters require specific cover to ensure you are protected in the event of an accident or damage. Talk to your Sheridan Insurances broker to find out what cover is available and how it can be customised to suit your business.

In general, forklifts need one of three types of cover:

  • Third Party Only which protects you if someone makes a claim resulting from damage or injury caused by your forklift
  • Third Party, Fire and Theft provides fire and theft cover for your own forklift
  • Comprehensive insurance includes Third Party, Fire and Theft, plus the added peace of mind that your forklift is covered if it is accidentally damaged.

The 1951 factory act introduced the requirement that all plant and pressure vessels be inspected at various intervals. For example, a passenger life in a hotel needs to be inspected every six months, whereas a compressor needs to be inspected every twelve months. Engineering insurance can look after your statutory obligations if required.

If you run a business hiring out, selling, importing or exporting forklifts, or training people how to operate them, we can also provide impartial advice and package together liability policies including employer’s liability, product and public liability to protect you and your business. Talk to your Sheridan Insurances broker for more information about a package that suits you.

  • Comprehensive insurance includes Third Party, Fire and Theft, plus the added peace-of-mind that your dumper is covered if it is accidentally damaged.

Not only will you find our quotes highly competitive, but they will be  customised to suit your unique needs, such as whether you plan to use your dumper on public roads or only private land, and whether you need dumper insurance to cover one vehicle or a fleet.

We can also provide impartial advice, and package together liability policies, including employer’s liability, product and public liability to protect you and your business. Talk to your Sheridan Insurances broker for more information about a package that suits you.
