Let our specialist property team find the right cover and price for you.

As a commercial property owner, you may be looking to arrange business insurance that covers you when it comes to undertaking inspections of shared facilities at your site. This could include items like a boiler, lift or pressure plant. These vital inspections are important in order to maintain the safety of machinery and equipment and are a legal requirement in many cases. As the responsible party for the repair and maintenance of machinery, engineering inspection insurance is a wise investment.

This type of policy is also ideal if you are the operator of a factory, warehouse or storage facility and have forklift trucks that legally require an inspection (as per the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 LOLER.) Even a lift within your office facilities or a restaurant carrying only goods or stock would still require a statutory inspection.

You don’t have to arrange a standalone engineering inspection policy, you could also add an Inspection Section within your Commercial Combined Policy if you already have one.

With this is mind, Hamilton Robertson have many years’ experience in this area and have assisted many clients across Scotland and the UK with arranging bespoke levels of engineering inspection cover. So no matter what industry you work in or however small or large your requirement for this kind of insurance is, we know we can provide you with a policy that gives you both financial and liability protection. We also get you the most competitive rates on the market due to our strong relationships to leading insurance names.

Inspection cover is available for the following:

  • Boilers, Lifting Equipment, Electrical, Pressure Systems, Exhaust Ventilation
  • Accidental damage, breakdown, explosion or collapse
  • Damage to the property insured caused directly by the lift or boiler
  • Temporary removal costs
  • Debris removal costs Additional costs for temporary repair
