Safeguard Your Business With An Insurance Policy Review

Insurance is a great way to mitigate the risks to your business, but it’s important to have the right policies in place at the right time. As your business grows and changes, your insurance policies need to change accordingly, and the best way to find out how to get the right coverage is to have an insurance policy review.

Your business is always evolving. Whether it’s new developments in technology, shifting economic pressures or unexpected growth opportunities, things can change pretty quickly in the earthmoving industry. That means the risks you face today are likely to be much different to the risks you faced just a year ago. Having the right insurance policies in place to mitigate these new and emerging risks is vital for the success of your business, and the best way to make sure your business has the proper amount of coverage is to undergo a policy review with an insurance broker.


Did you know that 62 per cent of Australian SMEs are unlikely to have the right insurance in place to protect their business¹, and that 1 in 10 businesses with insurance don’t have enough cover to protect themselves against business interruption, legal liabilities or loss or damage to their assets?² This is known as “underinsurance” and can greatly increase the threat of a business failing if, or more likely, when, something goes wrong.

In the earthmoving industry, the risks businesses face can change quickly. Due to the time pressures owners face in the day to-day running of their businesses, safeguarding against these new and emerging risks can often be deprioritised, increasing the business’ chances of becoming underinsured. A policy review ensures you have the right level of insurance to protect your business so that it can continue to operate even when the unexpected occurs.


It’s good business practice to not only review your policy each year, but also when there are changes to your usual business operations. There are a number of factors that should trigger a policy review, including:

• New lines of work: remember, what may seem like a small change for you can be viewed as a large change by your insurer;
• Purchasing of new equipment and other business assets;
• New risks to the business due to changes in business operations, including cyber risks;
• Staffing: either increasing or reducing the size of your team;
• Changes in clients or contractors;
• Changes in ownership or directorship.
