What’s at risk?

The range of primary risks can vary depending on the nature and scale of your business. It depends on your business activities, whether you’re carrying dangerous goods or not, if you’re transporting customer’s goods, and a range of other variables.

Here are some risks you need to be aware of:

Cargo loss or damage

Vehicle Accidents

Transport insurance covers your vehicles in case of accidents, including collisions, overturns, or damage from other road hazards. It ensures that the cost of repairs or replacements is covered, minimising the financial impact on your business.

Cargo loss or damage

Cargo Loss or Damage

Transporting goods comes with the risk of cargo loss or damage due to accidents, theft, or environmental factors. Accidental damage cover provides coverage for the value of the cargo, ensuring that you’re compensated in the event of any loss or damage, protecting both your goods and your bottom line.

Icon for Liability claims

Liability Claims

In the transport industry, accidents can lead to liability claims for bodily injury or property damage to third parties. Transport insurance helps safeguard your business by covering the costs of legal defence and any settlements or judgments, so that your financial assets are protected.

Icon for Business interruption

Business Interruption

Transport insurance can include coverage for business interruption caused by accidents, breakdowns, or other unforeseen events. It provides compensation for lost income during the downtime, allowing you to continue operating smoothly, even in challenging circumstances.

Need to make a claim?

Don’t worry – we’re here to help. Follow these steps to ensure a smooth claims process.

1. Gather information

Collect your essential information, including your policy number, insurer’s name, and agent’s contact. Be ready to describe the incident type, damage or loss, how it occurred, any witness, and any additional documentation or photos if available.

2. File your claim

To file a claim, contact your insurer and provide your policy number. The claims adjuster may request more information or documents, and some insurers offer online claim forms for quick submission.

3. Review and negotiate the claim

Once you file your claim, the insurer will respond within ten business days. If approved, expect a settlement offer that may be lower than anticipated. If denied, they’ll provide a reason, and you can appeal with legal guidance. Keep all related documents for future reference, and if your claim is approved, move forward accordingly.

4. Get the payment

After settling, expect a payment from the insurance company. For inquiries or claim status updates, contact your insurer or broker. In exceptional cases, like catastrophes, the process may extend up to 12 months, but you can still inquire about your claim’s status.
