Can my paving materials be covered whilst on-site?

They can, paving materials whilst on site can either be covered on a Contract Works Insurance which covers the world themselves or they can be covered under a contractor’s combined insurance.

It makes sense particularly on a larger contract that all your materials are delivered to the site in larger quantities, allowing the contract to flow much better and giving your employees access to everything they need all in one place. Sometimes when materials of any type are left in the open or without protection from such issues as theft problems can occur, theft, malicious damage, damage to existing work can all pose a problem. Speak to us about protecting your materials whilst on site.
