As a Crane Operator, your decision to seek out comprehensive insurance is a wise financial decision. Insurance will protect you and your business –  and your hard-earned livelihood.  Whether you operate a fixed or tower crane or have a mobile crane or fleet of cranes, your business has a unique set of risks to consider. Crane operator insurance is about being protected in case of possible losses or disaster. Flexible and affordable insurance policies are available through Bluewell Insurance that you can customise for your specific set of business circumstances.

Elements of a good insurance policy for a Crane Operator

Whether working as an individual in your business or with a number of employees and contractors, you will be aware of the need for a suitable crane operator insurance policy that is tailored to your circumstances. Here are the elements to be searching for when choosing your insurance cover and policy:

Comprehensive cover

Comprehensive cover is an insurance policy that protects your Crane Operation from all possible risk and may include property loss or damage cover including cover for accidental or deliberate damage. Areas of cover to consider include:

  • fire,
  • theft
  • water damage
  • on road accident
  • on-hook liability
  • Accidental overload
  • Multi lifting
  • Public liability
  • General liability

When searching for cover, you can either identify a single existing policy that covers key risks or you can negotiate for a customised policy that suits your crane operating business needs. Consulting an insurance provider helps in identifying potential risks and can assist with designing an insurance policy that keeps your business safe.

Bluewell Insurance Brokers can assist with customising a cover for you and your crane operating business or finding an existing cover to suit you.

Insurance options

Insurance will not prevent the risks from happening but is about shielding your boat building business from financial impact brought about by the risks. Your research should look into some of the following;

Affordable and Flexible premiums

It is important that your costs in business are not prohibitive. It is often thought that insurance policy covers are expensive and financially unachievable. This can keep many boat dealer business owners from insuring their businesses. However, access to comprehensive yet affordable insurance policies has been made easier by the internet market. You can search online for a provider offering the best covers that suit your business needs at the lowest rates in the market or contact us at Bluewell Insurance to do the leg work for you. Bluewell Insurance has the team to seek out affordable cover to suit your needs.

In order to keep your business safe and financially viable, you need to keep track of your ongoing costs. When applying for an insurance policy for your business and yourself, it would be helpful to seek out providers with flexible premiums suitable to the flow of your income that can be easy to get started.

Sickness and accident policies

When operating as an individual in business, suffering a sickness or debilitating accident could simply mean you may have no income because you can’t work. This can have a devastating impact on you and can be even more so if you have dependents. A sickness and accident policy protects your income in case of sickness and/or accident and can provide you with peace-of-mind that you can continue to provide for you and your dependents.

Workers compensation

Do you have employees in your crane operating business? If yes, this insurance policy is a MUST. Employees are prone to injury in the workplace, especially in your industry. This policy covers legal and medical fees as well as providing compensation if necessary.
