Concrete pumping is a process wherein liquid is transferred through pipes and hoses using a pumping mechanism. Concrete pumps are of 3 types – boom pumps, line pumps and stationery trailer line pumps.
A line pump is loaded onto a truck and may also be towed as trailer. Rubber or steel concrete placing hoses are connected to a line pump and machine outlet. These hoses lead to where concrete is pumped. A concrete mixer empties concrete into the line pump hopper. Some applications for line pumps include swimming pools and driveways.
As an owner of a concrete pumping trailer, you need truck insurance as protection from the unique risks you face in your sector. Changes in technology, workplace safety regulations, highway and transportation acts, environmental protection acts, and labor practice codes affect the way you do business. As such, you need the right insurance policy to ensure that as you stay abreast of these changes, you also effectively manage your risks and possible negative effects on your bottom line.
As an important player of your industry, remaining competitive and profitable means having adequate insurance cover at all times. A single accident claim can cost your business huge financial losses without insurance protection.
