Does our insurance cover us for damage to hired items?

Q:

The Parent Council has been offered free hire of a storage container but the company has informed me that it will need to be insured for £1,200 while it is left in school grounds. Would you please let us know if this would be covered by our insurance through our Connect membership?

A:

We are happy to confirm that the container will be covered under 3* and 4* Membership. The membership-linked insurance policy covers you for negligent damage to equipment on loan or hire to a limit of £10,000 on any one claim.
