Ride on lawnmowers

Ride on lawnmowersIf you are lucky enough to have a big garden to warrant ride on lawnmowers, then insurance for your expensive machinery is a consideration. Cover can be given under the contents section of the policy, up to the current new replacement cost, so its important to make sure your sums insured are sufficient. The lawnmower would then be specified under the contents section in the schedule.

We only offer cover for a lawnmower if contents insurance is purchased from us.
