Truck Insurance HQ can assist you with all your dangerous goods truck insurance needs with access to the largest range of general and specialist dangerous goods truck insurance companies in Australia.
Dangerous goods transporting trucks are one of the hardest to insure, with most insurers in the market having strict guidelines on what types, what volumes and what radius of operation a dangerous goods truck can carry.
Truck Insurance HQ can assist you in ensuring that you have the right cover to protect yourself as well as to ensure that you meet the various state Road Transport Authority guidelines.
Many dangerous good transporters and even brokers are unaware of the minimum dangerous goods sums insured that are required. Many non-specialist insurance brokers will incorrectly insure clients and allow for a lower dangerous goods liability sum limit to be offered by the insurer, often in the vicinity of $1,000,000 coverage. Unfortunately for many states and dangerous goods classes, it is a requirement that each vehicle and trailer has a minimum of $5,000,000 dangerous goods liability insurance per item including dollies.
Another consideration for long haul operators or those managing fleets of vehicles involved in dangerous goods transport, it is imperative to be insured by an insurer who has both comprehensive dangerous goods claims management and a nationwide responsability to ensure accidents are handled quickly and minimise claim exposures.
