Hoist Warranty from Fish Insurance
Our Hoist Warranty policy provides cover should your hoist suffer an electrical or mechanical breakdown.
Cover can be used to extend your manufacturer’s warranty, or protect your hoist if manufacturer’s warranty has already expired.
It’s important to note that if you take out the policy after your manufacturer’s warranty has already expired, there is no cover for the first 90 days from the start date of the policy.
Many people choose to set up their Hoist Warranty policy before their manufacturer’s warranty has expired, so that the start date will follow straight on and there will be no gap in cover.

We’ve answered some of the queries you might have about our Hoist Warranty
QWhen should my hoist warranty cover start?
AIf your hoist is still within its manufacturer’s warranty, the start date you choose for your Extended Warranty policy should be the day after the manufacturer’s warranty expires.
QWill warranty cover mean my hoist’s fuse can be replaced if it has blown?
ANo. Our warranty cover doesn’t include consumable items like fuses. However, we do offer cover for other unexpected electrical or mechanical faults.
QCan I buy warranty cover if my hoist’s manufacturer’s warranty has expired?
AYes. If your manufacturer’s warranty has expired, you can still take out Extended Warranty cover from Fish Insurance. However, multi-year policies will not be available to you, meaning you will only be able to take out a policy for one year at a time.
