Insurance

All hires must have insurance for hired in or dry hire of equipment in place.  However we understand that this is not always possible and for this reason VMI offer two insurance/damage waiver solutions depending on equipment value.  Alternatively our recommended insurance providers are listed below.  VAT at the prevailing rate will be added to damage waiver or insurance cover.

Equipment Value up to £12,000 (UK cover only)

VMI can supply Damage Waiver cover for equipment hired up to £12,000, charged at 15% of the total hire. VMI Damage Waiver Cover

Equipment Value above £12,000 

VMI are unable to offer either damage waiver or Insurance cover above £12,000 and will require you to arrange cover elsewhere and provide proof of cover via email to your order handler.
