This foresight is also echoed in the Clitheroe-based company’s attitude to its insurance.

Joint Managing Director Stephen Dent explained: “Over the past 50 years Brian Dent Ltd has not only seen its business grow, but also the size and complexity of the machinery it hires out.

“We started as a specialist in local agricultural contracting, but we moved in to plant and tool hire, and our client base now stretches across the North West.

“For equipment as valuable as this, with the potential for accidents it brings, having the correct insurance policies in place is not just legally crucial, it makes sound business sense.

“You can’t use guess work to arrange insurance cover in our sector, which is why the services of a local independent broker are vital.

“Sagar Insurances has a close working relationship with Brian Dent Ltd, to make sure our insurance cover keeps pace with our company’s development.”

As well as plant and tool hire, Brian Dent Ltd undertakes contracting work for the construction and quarrying industries.

Specialist policies with the right limits are crucial to the flexibility of our business operations and to have the peace of mind that we are covered for all eventualities likely to occur.

Stephen added:” Our clients are extremely diverse, from landfill companies and quarries to DIY enthusiasts, and from construction companies to local farmers.

“We also have a team of  staff so require Employers and Public Liability insurance in place.

“Many local authorities and commercial companies demand a certain level of insurance cover. Thankfully, Sagar Insurances have advised us on the best policies, with the right limits, and have used their industry contacts to keep premiums as low as possible.”
