What is Hire Protect?

Conditions of cover

How much does it cost?

Policy Cost

Hire Protect is calculated as a percentage of your total hire charge – 15% on all equipment.  For example, if the cost of hiring a 1 Tonne Excavator and a tracked power barrow for a day came to £100 the waiver would cost £15.

Excess Charges

In the event of a claim being made, you will be subject to the following excess charges:

Claim Value


£1 – £500 £25.00
£501 – £1,000 £50.00
£1,001 – £2,000 £75.00
£2,001 – £2,500 £100.00
£2,501 – £5,000 £250.00
