How to select the right insurance plan for the right equipment?
The purpose and location in which the machinery is to be used are the two main criteria for choosing.
Purpose would mean the work which the machine is supposed to perform while the location is the geographical area and condition in which the machine is supposed to perform. So, for example, if the machine is into tunnel lining, excavation or track laying, the coverage would accordingly differ. The structure, capacity and operations would differ as well. Locations plays a very important role as machines working underground, on hills, off shore, etc., would need to be covered for related risks.
