Nick Drew, the managing director, is well known within the Marquee industry, not only for the provision of insurance for a large sector of the industry since 1997, but also from his previous experience as an operations manager of a relatively large Marquee Hire Company, and from his published articles in trade magazines. Nick has advised The Performance Textiles Association (formally MUTA), and spoken at their AGM, on various Insurance issues.
CoverMarque is therefore able to state that we, as brokers, uniquely have a full understanding of the running and business needs of Marquee Hire Companies and are able to utilise this experience and knowledge into providing our clients with the most comprehensive policy for this market.
In the last few years we have developed our policies to facilitate the Insurance of other types of Tents, including Yurts, Tipis, Big Tops and a variety of other structures.
In 2011 Covermarque re-launched its “Inflatable Hirers” Insurance scheme; this has been received very well by members of the Leisure industry. The scheme is available for all inflatables from bouncy castles, to inflatable slides, sumo suits and Rodeo bulls / Multirides.
2011 has also seen the launch of a new insurance scheme for Event Organisers, in particular covering Hired in Marquee Equipment. The event Insurance is ideal for anybody hiring in Marquee and Associated Equipment for events such as Weddings, Parties, Fetes, Conferences and exhibitions from small events to larger events. The event Insurance can cover Public Liability and Equipment and / or either Marquee Equipment or Liabilities Only.
We also now specialise in Equine Insurance and Insurance for Exporters, we can provide Products Liability cover in Isolation or part of a Commercial Combined policy wherever you export your product.
