Insuring a truck or lorry over 7.5 tonne gross vehicle weight (GVW)

If you are an owner-driver operating a truck or lorry with a gross vehicle weight over 7.5 tonnes, you will be looking for competitively-priced truck insurance - cover is available for truck or HGV truck insurance for a range of commercial vehicles with a gross vehicle weight of more than 7.5 tons.

Why you need specialist truck insurance

As a truck owner or HGV operator, you rely on your vehicles for your business operations and revenue. Any downtime due to a truck being off the road owing to accidental damage or major repairs can result in significant financial losses while the lorry is unavailable. Truck insurance offers coverage for repairs, replacements, and even roadside assistance, ensuring that your haulage business can continue uninterrupted and minimising any potential financial setback.

Depending on your insurance policy, it may include cover for medical expenses, personal injury protection, or even legal defence fees if you are involved in a lawsuit arising from a road traffic collision. So it pays to shop around - these additional protections can be invaluable in unforeseen circumstances and help you to keep your trucks on the road.
