The circulatory system of so many industries, freight and haulage services provide support and deliver parts and products to organisations and individuals across the nation. Specialist haulage firms such as those transporting waste or hazardous will have their own unique set of requirements and risks and need their own tailor-made haulage insurance to keep on truckin’.
What Is Haulage and Transport Insurance?
Commercial vehicle insurance will often cover the cost of transporting goods, materials and people related to your own business. However, if you are in the business of transporting goods and materials on behalf of a third party, transport and haulage insurance is a necessity.
Who Needs Haulage and Transport Insurance?
Any business, from couriers, to large scale HGV fleet operators and international shipping companies will require transport and haulage insurance, each with their own special requirements. It is therefore vital that operators contact an experienced insurance broker to ensure they have the right type and level of cover for their individual needs.
What Does Haulage and Transport Insurance Cover?
Depending on the type of business and the size and capacity of the vehicle, haulage and transport insurance products can vary.
Is the vehicle articulated or flat bed? Curtain-sided or tipper? What is the size and weight of the vehicle? Are the goods domestic or being transported internationally?
These questions can determine the level and cost of the insurance policy but each policy can also cover areas such as:
- Motor insurance, breakdown and recovery
- Goods in transit cover
- Public liability
- Accidental damage
- Malicious or criminal damage
- Loss or damage to personal driver property.
