SafeGuard Protection

Summit Platforms provide you with peace of mind when hiring expensive powered access equipment.


Are you aware the replacement cost of one piece of equipment could be as much as £160,000? Does your Hired in Plant Insurance cover you for this if the machine you have on hire is stolen?


There are two SafeGuard Protection schemes which are tailored to your businesses needs:



 Covers accidental damage to the hired machine

 Removes need for damage assessment and payment

 Covers many charges which fall within insurance excess removing the need to claim

 No excess

 All machine values covered

 Only 10% of hire rate.

Exclusions: Theft, vandalism, malicious damage, paint over spray, tyre damage, punctures.



 All the benefits of SafeGuard Protection

 Only 20% of hire rate

 Covers Theft, Vandalism, Malicious Damage.

Exclusions: Paint over spray damage, punctures, tyre damage: Please note you are responsible for the first £1000.

 SafeGuard is offered to the hirer as a benefit at a set percentage uplift of the machine hire rate.

 Equipment is stored securely out of working hours.

 Any damage is reported to Summit Platforms as soon as possible.

 Theft, vandalism and malicious damage reported to the Police and a crime reference number attained.

 Equipment checks are carried out as per manufacturer’s instructions.

 Trained and authorised personnel utilise the equipment.

 For SafeGuard Plus the first £1000 of any claim is the Hirer’s responsibility.

 Exclusions for SafeGuard include:

– Paint overspray

– Deliberate machine misuse

– Tyre damage and punctures

– Use of contaminated fuel damaging filters and fuel lines

– Chemical corrosion

– Damage to equipment by a third party

– Consequential loss

– Gross negligence.

 Upon receipt of the Hirer’s Hired in Plant Insurance at a later date than that of the credit application form, SafeGuard charges on the Hirer’s

account will not be retrospectively credited.
