You can choose to arrange your own cover with own your insurer (some home insurance policies have this cover included) or we can provide cover in the form of a 'waiver'.
Our waiver option is provided by Zurich Insurance and the cost is based on 15% of the total cost of equipment hire.

A typical example might be:

Hire of digger £250
Waiver cost at 15% is £37.50
So you would pay £37.50 and you are covered for the duration of the hire period that has been booked subject to terms and conditions provided.
