Arborisk Renewal

Recommended Posts

Sounds like Arborisk need to up their game.

Renewal time approaching for me.


I might ask about my 200T.


’Market value’ is probably more than I paid for it new!

I've been with Arborisk, historically. Never made a claim, thankfully. But had my renewal documents through last week, for renewal in May & quite a lot has changed in the T's & C's. A big concern for us was offering market value & no longer offering 'New for Old' Cover. However, we called them, had the discussion and having never made a claim, the underwriters were happy to keep us with New for Old. My understanding is that won't be the case if you've made a claim or for new business though? Check with Arborisk.

Just looking at my renewal thats come through and as you say no new for old on items with arborisk.... Been with them 6 years or so.....  No claims in my entire time as a tree surgeon either.

Never offered to keep new for old either. I said so I have to pay out 500.00 excess for you to say my 5 year old saw is worth 100.00? they said well its for if all your saws go etc.... bit false economy to me.


Quote wasnt cheaper with it not being ner for old either which you thought it may well be as its lesser cover!


Also interesting bit is that even on site and trailer or chipper is locked onto truck. you MUST fit a wheel clamp at all times. what a ball ache... so not just putting a chain on it to the truck... other wise void claim.


I already consider my insurance to be dear enough!


Trust seems a lot better policy but dearer still! over the 2k mark for me with plant etc 


All this to earn a living ey? lol
