client wants me to use his mower
#1

Hi all have a great client who is elderly and cant mow the lawn himself any more and has all his own gardening equipment and has asked me if I can use his little 16inch cylinder mower on his lawn every now and then so it doesn't sit idle for to long a reasonable request from a very nice man but can anyone shed light on how insurance companies would see this if the mower had a major issue while I was using it or if I broke a window using it. I am sure the client wouldn't be much of a problem if there was an incident he is a very nice person but you can never be to careful any thoughts on this would be great :? )

yep cheers dregs broke a window once with my own mower and the insurance company didn't ask who's mower I was using.Didn't make a claim anyway as the excess was more than the repair bill :twisted: . recon I might use his mower next time I am sure he would love to see his trusty old steed running around the paddock instead of getting put to pasture.
