Specialists for heavy-duty situations: the Heavy Transport/Crane team

Companies in the heavy transport and crane industry face an extremely complex liability situation. Furthermore, the hazardous use of high investment volumes (mobile cranes, heavy duty equipment, construction cranes, hoist equipment, work platforms, etc.) calls for professional transfer of risk.

As a founding member of the federal German technical group for heavy-duty transport and crane work (BSK), Funk has been an institution in this demanding industry for over 50 years. We have been applying our combined insurance expertise in the Heavy Transport/Crane team since 1994.
