Volumetric & Plant

Ready to make a difference

Volumetric Vehicles

Concrete volumetric batching unit insurance is very much a specialist insurance market and one which the team here at Howden have specialised in for over 25 years.

We overcome the usual problematic exclusions of motor insurance, such as excluding all theft cover whist your key is in the ignition, to offer insurance that’s specific to concrete trucks and the way they’re used, with a premium that can still be fiercely competitive.

Contact us to see if we can save you money on a combined Volumetric Vehicles insurance policy while enhancing your cover.


Key policy features

  • Unique and specialist covers only available here
  • No complicated forms to complete
  • Full theft cover whilst keys in vehicle
  • Any driver cover

Concrete Plant

With such specialised equipment and plant used, our team at Howden will look at the essential covers that your business needs and ensure that your plant and equipment is properly covered.

Concrete pumps, loading shovels, silos and fork lift trucks can all be covered under the same policy, which is arranged to provide the widest cover available. Any hired in plant could also be included under this policy. See if we can save you money and improve your insurance cover. 


Key policy features

  • Full theft cover whilst keys in vehicle
  • Any driver cover
  • Hired or owned plant
