The earthmoving business has grown a lot in recent years. The number and versatility of working machines and more extensive contracts require greater accuracy in insurance matters. When you take out a policy, list carefully all the things the machines will be used for, what kind of contracts they are engaged in and who makes the agreements for the contracts. Different work sites and contracts require different general liability insurance policies.
Insuring earth-moving businesses requires skill, and we will be happy to help you in finding the most suitable insurance solution.

Project your company from liability losses
General liability insurance is very important in the earth-moving business, because it enables you to prepare for unforeseeable commercial liability losses, and consequent financial losses. If your company engages in quarrying, for example, a policy of strict liability is applied, meaning that your company is always responsible if any losses occur. This is why you should include a quarrying liability insurance policy to complement your general liability insurance. Additional cover may also be useful for other earth-moving businesses.
Ensure sufficient insurance cover for the target
Any work performed always applies to a certain target and therefore it is important that the earth-moving target has its own policy covering any losses to it. The policy must always to chosen on the basis of the target, either as a continuous annual policy or per target. For example, if you are making plumbing and sewage work into a channel, you should take out CAR/EAR insurance for the target. You can also take additional cover to insure the property about the target.
Cover for working machines in case of losses
We have a range of working machine policies and will have one that suits your working machine, whether it is large or small. Choose the coverage and deductible for your working machines that suits them best. The Working machine extra policy we have designed for the needs of earth-moving and machinery contractors gives coverage to your working machines' accessories and other moveable property.
Ensure entrepreneur's and employees' working capacity
Slippery and uneven terrain, varying places or work and weather conditions create constant challenges to earth-moving professionals. You can prevent occupational accidents and diseases with proper working methods, use of safety equipment, and by being careful. Being in a hurry is at the background of most accidental injuries.
If accidents occur, the statutory workers' compensation insurance provides security to your employees, and our quick treatment chain makes it easier to return back to normal. As an entrepreneur you are not covered by statutory insurance obligation, but we recommend that you cover yourself with self-employed persons’ accident insurance. You can take out a voluntary medical treatment expenses insurance policy, Health Insurance, alongside statutory accident insurance. In case of illness or accident, it is important to get treatment quickly, as it will speed up your recovery and benefit both you as an entrepreneur and your employees.
