No. Truck insurance is not automatically more expensive if you have a heavy truck. Your heavy truck insurance quote will be based on the assets and the work you undertake. This includes:
- Number of vehicles
- Vehicle type, age, and value
- The excess and downtime cover you've chosen
No problem. Updating your heavy truck insurance policy with Truck Assist is easy. Simply call us on 1800 T Assist (1800 827 747) and we update your cover over the phone.
Make sure you and your drivers have the correct licence class for your vehicle. If you’re unsure, contact your local state authority.
We can insure most trailers that are owned by you, as well as your truck but thses need to be insured separately and shown on the schedule of insurance.
We also recognise that you may tow trailers that you don't own. As part of Drive Pack we include non-owned trailer (Trailer in Control) cover. This covers your liability for damage to one non-owned trailer. You can get up to $75,000 as an automatic benefit.
If the trailer you have to tow for someone else is worth more than $75,000 or you need to add cover for other trailers, you can easily add it to your policy schedule as an extra. Call 1800 T Assist (1800 827 747) and we can help you do this over the phone.
