What is public liability insurance for haulage firms?
Public liability cover is designed to protect haulage companies against claims for third party injuries and property damage. We can also include additional cover for equipment and tools, to pay the cost of legal expenses, all depending on your individual business needs.

Employers’ liability insurance is a legal requirement for employers.
How do I choose insurance?
Ensuring you have the right type and level of business insurance can make the difference between getting a payment for your claim, or having to cover the cost of an expensive accident out of your own bank account.
