The hire of any item of plant or equipment is inevitably accompanied by risk – either through accidental damage, theft or misuse.

With the cost of modern mobile cranes ranging from £100,000 to over £2.5 million, the financial implications for customers in the event of a serious incident is significant.

BS7121 – Safe Use of Cranes – notes these risks and highlights the need to protect against their consequences through appropriate comprehensive insurance cover. This factor is now considered by many customers to be as important as the specification of equipment.

We at WB Services (UK) Limited Limited have a comprehensive insurance package.
