OBTAINING insurance for a mine site can be a complex process, but Affinity Insurance makes it easy for contractors to understand what types of cover they may need, how to get it, and how much it will cost – giving them options to make the right decision on how to best insure their business.
According to the family-owned firm, owners of mobile plant and equipment were often unaware that they could insure the resultant loss of profits, or extra costs incurred, when hiring temporary equipment if their own was damaged.
“Companies that contract to mine sites can protect their assets and the income linked to their machines if they use the right insurer,” a company spokesperson said.
Affinity Insurance can help mine contractors or suppliers with a full suite of insurance services, including public liability, directors’ liability, professional indemnity and workers compensation. It can also provide mobile plant insurance and the insurance of any income generated by it. The company caters to insurance matters relating to both above or below ground mine sites.
“No two businesses are the same, so why should their insurance be the same. As a general insurance broker, we have access to more than 100 different insurance markets in order to find the right combination of covers to fit our clients’ businesses,” the
Affinity Insurance spokesperson said.
Companies in need of improved insurance plans don’t need to wait for their insurance to be due for renewal before contacting Affinity Insurance.
“A mine contractor or supplier just needs to fill in a simple form, and we will take care of the rest,” the spokesperson said. Affinity Insurance has a team of experienced advisors who specialise in providing business insurance to the mining industry.
