At Auto & General, we understand the important services that freight and logistics businesses provide for the country. From delivering food and household goods to consumers, to supplying other businesses with essential tools and equipment, our economy relies on these businesses and their trucks. That’s why we offer specialised heavy commercial vehicle insurance to our Business Insurance clients, so they can keep their businesses – and the country – running smoothly.
We offer three types of cover to suit any business with trucks from 3.5 to 10 tonnes, depending on what goods they carry.
Motor Only Vehicle Insurance
Our Comprehensive Truck Insurance protects your vehicles against theft and hijacking, accident damage, third-party liability, windscreen damage, fires and explosions, and numerous acts of nature like floods, storms, hail, lightning, heavy winds, and earthquakes.
Motor and All-Risk Vehicle Insurance
With this cover, you get our Comprehensive Truck Insurance combined with cover for the valuable tools and equipment you keep in your vehicle that help you and your drivers get the job done.
Motor and Goods-in-Transit Vehicle Insurance
Experience has taught us it’s better to be safe than sorry because anything can go wrong on our roads. That’s why we offer you the option to combine our comprehensive cover with Goods-in-Transit Insurance, so your business isn’t at risk of severe financial loss if your goods are lost damaged, or stolen while you’re transporting it.
Heavy Commercial Vehicle Insurance quotes
Because a standard Car Insurance policy simply can’t provide all the right cover you need for your trucks, we offer only bespoke Heavy Commercial Vehicle Insurance quotes.
