Side Tank Cover

Side Tank Cover is a uniquely beneficial add-on product that is exclusively available to Envirosure policy holders. The side tank (self-powered) diesel spill clean-up costs are included in the cover.

In the event of an accident, and on many occasions, the diesel side tank is ruptured, thereby spilling its diesel into the environment. This type of spillage can range from 10 Litres to 1,000 Litres, often covering a large road surface. This can create an environmental disaster for the surrounding locations, which may result in large clean-up and disposal costs.

Our cover options include:

HazCall 24, a 24/7 call centre service

Clean-up costs

Disposal of waste material

Rehabilitation of the environment and road surface

Liability cover

Excess Solutions

Excess Solutions will reduce or eliminate the excess payable on a claim, thereby saving costs.

Key features of cover:

No excess payable for claims that occur within South Africa

Cross border excess is reduced to only R50,000 per claim
