Finding the right solution
Due to numerous recent high profile losses, piers are traditionally very hard to insure. This leads to many piers being unable to afford the premiums, or even worse buying pier insurance which is totally unsuitable for the risks they face. We are members of BALPPA and work closely with the organisation to ensure our knowledge of the leisure industry is up to date.
However, over recent years both through our high level of special risk insurance experience, and engagement with pier owners, The National Piers Society and BALPPA, we have become the UK’s leading pier insurance broker.
Using our knowledge of the pier industry we have created an insurance product that addresses the risks piers face properly, and helps pier owners manage the risks they face. Thus, making their piers a more attractive proposition to insurers.
What our clients have to say about us
“It can be hard finding the right insurance for piers. Lockyers have put their specialist knowledge of piers to good use, insuring our business and the pier structure on the correct basis”.
Keeping you protected
One of the main mistakes we come across when reviewing a pier’s insurance for the first time, is that they are insured as though they are a business or property based on land, which they are obviously not. Our pier insurance programme takes into account that they are marine structures which require specific cover for exposure to the seas and elements.
Our system of insuring piers has met the needs of the pier owners, their banks/mortgagors and charity funding such as the Heritage Lottery Fund.
We can offer insurance cover for:
- The Reconstruction and Renovation of Piers
- Operational Leisure Piers
- Working Piers, Wharfs, Quays & Docks
Insurance cover for your pier can be tailored from the following:
