Goods-in-transit insurance

Do you transport goods or livestock? Strengthen your client relationships with a goods-in-transit policy. This cover can help protect your client’s cargo against loss, damage or delay.

Trailer-in-control insurance

Help cover trailers you transport. If you need to cart a trailer that’s owned by another company, then trailer-in-control insurance can help keep you protected.

Downtime cover

Help protect your cash flow when your insured trucks are out of action. Should a crash take an insured truck off the road, downtime cover can still help provide that lost monthly income.

Insurance premium funding

Insurance can keep your transport business on the road when you need it most. But lump sum premiums can be a roadblock. We can arrange monthly instalments for premium funding to keep you moving.
