The costs involved for recovering vehicles of this size can be astronomical. What’s more, because of their size it may be an emergency situation, with main roads blocked due to what can be even minor accidents or small faults. Breakdown insurance allows businesses to get back on track as quickly as possible with the minimum of fuss, reducing down time and allowing them to meet deadlines that would otherwise be impossible.
Any business that has employees on its books, even if just for work experience or apprentices, is legally required to take out employers’ liability insurance. Covering insurance events that cause injury or damage property, the policy makes sense on a practical level too, especially when the risks of working with such large vehicles and heavy weights are involved.
