  • Equipment Damage & Breakdown
  • Deterioration of Stock – to follow very shortly
  • Loss of Income – to follow very shortly
  • Inspection Services

HSB have a national network of engineer surveyors who ensure delivery of a comprehensive and timely service. Their engineers are multi-disciplined, reducing the number of engineers that would need to visit locations with complex plant. This minimises client disruption. To assist with the transfer process, any existing HSB relationships will be maintained wherever possible.

  • Mutually agreed appointments are made before each visit usually giving at least 7 days’ notice.
  • A Report of Non Inspection will be issued if access is not possible or equipment is not available, which provides relevant information as to situation and route for arranging re-visit.
  • 95% of inspections are completed within 90 days of first notification of instruction.
  • Reports are provided to the Insured within a maximum of 10 working days of the inspection and can also be made available via the HSB online portal.
