Tools in Transit Insurance

What does this policy cover?

ALA Tools in Transit Insurance covers the repair or new-for-old replacement of tools or equipment which are lost, stolen or damaged whilst being loaded into, carried by or temporarily stored in your insured vehicle.

There are four levels of cover to choose from when buying your policy: £500, £1000, £2500 or £5000.

It is important to select the correct amount that would be required to repair or replace your tools. If you underestimate the value of the equipment you will be responsible for a proportion of a claim.

From just £37.00 per year you can recover the unexpected cost of replacing expensive tools.
