Hi , bit of a general enquiry

- not sure where it fits really.

 

Our tree company has been broken into and the chainsaws stolen for the THIRD time !

( In 6 months )

 

On the second instance

- I brought in my own saw to help out as replacements are not easily found on Day1 of a theft .

All the tools were locked in a steel bin and lo and behold after coming back from holiday I discovered we had been burgled again ! -

My saw had also gone from the locked bin.

 

Now asking the manager would he be replacing my saw ,

he said no - as he said they are not covered for personal kit .

 

Have I been too kind or is he mugging me off ?

 

Cheers, in anticipation Q

Hi Qhriss

 

If the chainsaw was your own personal kit...how come you locked it in your employers steel bin rather than keep it safe at your home ? Is it the terms of your employment that you provide your own chainsaw?

 

Regards

Neither the business or you would have cover for a chainsaw you owned, that you kept on work premises.

 

You should have checked the situation, before the chainsaw was kept at work, given the previous theft incidents. If you had done so, your employers could have confirmed that no Insurance would apply and they would not cover it, so you had to take it home.

 

As a theft has now happened three times in a short space, i suspect the business Insurers will impose tough security terms on the policy from renewal or no theft cover will be offered.

Hi Andy,

I did this as it was to assist until the company saws were replaced , and as you would imagine - there is just as much chance of the saw been stolen from home as would be at work - no ?? The company must provide our tools but it aint happening anytime that day of the theft ! Cheers Q
