We are proud to be a specialist partner with Aviva, a leading UK insurer, to provide their clients with specialist plant and machinery valuation services. We support Aviva commercial customers nationally and internationally.  Charterfields provides insurance assessments for all asset categories, with reports designed around a client’s specific cover programme.

Plant, Machinery and Contents Costs

Accurate reinstatement cost assessments for plant, equipment and contents are a vital element in the risk management of a business’s assets. With under insurance potentially leading to shortfalls in claim settlements, and over insurance resulting in excess premiums for no benefit to the policyholder, independent expert advice on your declared values is vital as part of a comprehensive risk management programme.

Did you Know?

  • Only 20% (1 in 5) of companies were found to be insured within +/- 10% of the actual asset reinstatement cost (the margin acceptable to insurers)*
  • 68% were under-insured by between 11% and 100%
  • 12% were over-insured by between 11% and 50%
