What is marquee hire damage waiver?

Marquee hire damage waiver insurance provides you with indemnity against the cost of any repairs to the marquee structures and hired equipment from Queensberry Event Hire Limited if they are accidentally damaged during the marquee hire period, (except generators and toilets).

Our marquees and equipment have a value which adds up too many tens of thousands of pounds. So, it is vital that the equipment is fully insured during the hire period.

A customer may insure the marquees and equipment themselves, through a standard wedding /event insurance policy.  But, this can be time consuming to arrange and costly.

As a cost effective and convenient alternative to arranging your own insurance, we include a Damage Waiver Fee, amounting to 6% of the total equipment hire charge and in doing so we take full responsibility for the risk of accidental damage to the equipment during the hire period. This is done through our own insurance.

Our insurers impose the following conditions to the damage waiver, where the customer is responsible for:

  1. The first £500 of accidental damage to the equipment.
  2. All damage resulting from wilful neglect, abuse or legal liability.
  3. All damage due to a failure to comply with any security arrangements that have been agreed. 

Indemnity does not extend to theft and loss, and excludes generators, heaters and toilets, all of which you are responsible for the full repair or replacement cost.
