Hireshield is an online ‘short-term hire’ insurance facility, which has been created by Tysers and Zurich Insurance plc, for the benefit of our existing Plant and Tool Hire Clients.

Unlike many other facilities available on the market, Hireshield avoids the need for lengthy form-filling and admin, allowing cover to be arranged almost immediately.

If you are a Hirer and wish to arrange short term cover for equipment that you are hiring, then please obtain the user name and password from the Hire Company that you are hiring from.

If the Hire Company that you are hiring from does not have a Hireshield account, then please refer to our map of existing Hire Companies to find a local company in your area. The Hire Company will not only provide you with the equipment required, but can also provide you access to insurance cover to meet the terms of your hire contract.
