Why do concrete pumping businesses need insurance?

Construction is booming in many parts of the country, putting concrete pumping businesses in high demand. That’s great for your bottom line, but you might also be at risk.

Every small business faces risks and dangers that could bring their operations to a standstill. Concrete pumping is no different. From worksite accidents to a broken concrete pump boom, unexpected expenses could drain money right from your accounts.

That’s why business insurance is a must-have for many concrete pumping businesses.

Did you know?

Concrete pumpers often need Public Liability insurance to work on construction sites. You may need to provide a certificate of currency to your clients.

What types of insurance does a concrete pumping business need?

Every small business is unique, but there are several types of insurance that most concrete pumping businesses consider:

Public Liability

A common type of insurance for concrete pumpers is Public Liability. This covers legal fees and compensation costs if a customer, member of the public, or a supplier claims against you for injury or damage to their property as a result of your alleged negligent business activity.

Picture this: You put your toolbox down at a worksite, and another tradie trips over it, injuring themselves*. Without Public Liability insurance, you could be on the hook for medical bills and more if the tradie decides to take legal action against you.

Business Insurance

A lot can go wrong when you’re running a concrete pumping business. You may want cover for unplanned events like fires or broken equipment.

Business Insurance is an insurance package designed to provide cover for your business contents, stock, tools and commercial premises when an insured event occurs (such as fire, storm, theft or even accidental damage). A Business Insurance package can also cover your portable equipment, glass and for loss of revenue due to business interruption in specified circumstances. In addition, cover is available for public liability, tax audit, employment practices and statutory liability risks.

Concrete pumping businesses may choose covers like Machinery Breakdown for their equipment, Contents for their records and other business property, and Business Interruption to help them manage unexpected work stoppages, just to name a few.

Personal Accident & Illness

Accidents happen, and Personal Accident and Illness insurance can provide cover should you become permanently disabled or pass away as a result of an accident. Cover can also include a weekly benefit for loss of income if you are unable to work as a result of an unexpected injury or illness (even if it occurs outside of your employment).

If a worksite injury or bad turn during a touch footy match puts you out of commission, your Personal Accident & Illness policy has your back. It can help cover up to 85% of your wages** while you recover.

What does concrete pumping insurance cover?

How much does insurance cost for concrete pumping businesses?

  • The number of people covered – A sole trader will likely pay less than a business with many employees.
  • Your business turnover and size – The amount of revenue you make each year can affect your cover.
  • Where your business is located – Your location may impact how much you are charged for insurance.
  • The amount of cover you require – The more cover you choose, the higher your premiums will likely be.
