HAE EHA's member service, HireSecure, a new and improved Short-Term Hired Insurance product replacing HireGuard went live on 1st October 2021.
HireSecure is available to all members to cover accidental loss or damage, fraudulent hire, theft, vandalism and malicious damage on owned or cross-hired equipment. This follows the announcement that Towergate Insurance Brokers will take over responsibility for the trade association's insurance services as its new, sole broker.
Paul Gaze, HAE EHA Chief Executive Officer, said: "Following a competitive tender, we are delighted to welcome Towergate as our new insurance partner. Considering the challenges faced by members since the beginning of 2020, we felt it was necessary to examine the insurance marketplace and review insurance service products in order to provide the most comprehensive support possible to our very varied membership base. We are confident that, in Towergate, we have found the best solution all round from a partner that really understands our members' markets."
Towergate was chosen as it is the UK's leading independent broker and risk management advisor, specialising in bespoke policies for SMEs and commercial entities of all sizes, with extensive experience in the hire and events marketplace. And, from 1st October, HAE EHA will endorse Towergate and licence the trading names of HAE Insurance Services and EHA Insurance Services to Towergate Insurance Brokers Limited
