Types of insurance policies for trucking businesses
As the name suggests, this policy protects truck business owners from claims arising from third-party damages. In connection with the previous insurance type, this protection plan will safeguard your business in the event that it becomes legally liable for property damage or an injury it has caused.
3. Goods in Transit Insurance
When shipping goods or equipment, your business runs the danger of damaging or losing a third party's cargo. Goods in Transit Insurance, which is suitable for transport operators, distributors, and courier services, can protect your enterprise from this risk. This insurance type will also give you and your clients peace of mind as it serves as an additional layer of security.
4. Marine Cargo Insurance
Covering cargo that is transported via land, rail, air, or sea, this policy type is a bit more comprehensive compared to other insurance options as it can protect refrigerated goods and may be customized to cover rainwater damage and theft. Marine cargo insurance policies designed to protect home contents in transit are also available.
While this policy applies to all businesses, trucking companies may benefit from getting this type of insurance as it covers income losses and ongoing expenses incurred from events that have caused a business to stop operating. A similar option called Downtime Insurance helps pay for truck repair costs and provides financial support until the vehicle can get back on the road.
It’s never too early to safeguard your business from financial losses. Prevention is key to ensuring your company is protected from unforeseen events on the road. Reach out to an insurance broker today to learn more about your options.
