Machinery breakdown

We can’t keep the cogs moving… But we can help you pick up the pieces when they stop

In a nutshell

Machines are an integral part of any manufacturing or production process. Without them, you’ll find it hard to be productive if this is the business you’re in. Luckily, King Price can fix you up with machinery breakdown cover that’ll have you going again in no time at all. Our machinery breakdown insurance provides cover for unforeseen and sudden damage to the insured machinery on your premises.
