Cherry pickers are special vehicles used in various undertakings, such as construction and work at heights. Providers of cherry pickers and operation services are taking the initiative to provide insurance for their equipment and operators.

Following news of fatal accidents associated to cherry pickers in the last five years, safety concerns for providers, operators and their clients alike are reflected by the growing demand for cherry picker insurance.

What Does a Cherry Picker Insurance Cover?

Cherry picker services look for insurers who cover a wide range of concerns, such as road safety and damage to the equipment. This gives them a sense of security and makes them more confident in offering their services, knowing that their needs are taken care of.

In NZ, where there are thousands of certified cherry picker operators, operating an insured equipment means being able to accomplish more demanding jobs such as roof construction and painting, as well as setting up décor and electrical systems, or cleaning, from heights.

For customers, on the other hand, working with an insured service provider means peace of mind that the job will be completed as safely as possible. Providers who insure their equipment are deemed to be more concerned about keeping their business operations safe, and their customers free from the stress of dealing with unforeseen events, such as accidents and damage to the equipment, while on the job.

Cherry picker insurance benefits the service provider, duty holder and client by providing assurance and a sense of security  during any job. As such, it is no wonder that many service providers aim to insure their equipment and make it a point to let their clients know.
