32 Tonne Truck Insurance

Generally speaking, 32 tonners are rigid vehicles, and the bulk of these are Tippers. A standard unit to be transported is 20 tonne, and this can be transported by a 32 tonne truck. 32 tonne trucks are classified in this way, as they are 32 tonne in gross vehicle weight (GVW). The GVW is the maximum legal weight that the vehicle and its load can be. If an operator was uncertain if their vehicle was overweight, there are weigh bridges that can measure the total weight of a vehicle. These weigh bridges are a drive on and off facility that can give an instant reading of what the vehicle weighs and if it is overweight. If you are transporting sand, gravel or tarmac, then generally you will be asked to take 20 tonne loads. For younger drivers then there are other options for motor trade insurance to cover all the vehicles if you are working on them.

Ways To Reduce Your 32 Tonne Truck Insurance Costs

By naming the individual drivers that are working on a vehicle, the insurance premiums can be reduced. Also, a larger excess can be applied so that the insurer has the peace of mind that they will not be paying out on small claims. Some 32 tonne trucks have lifting equipment, with cranes or grabs. This allows the product to be delivered accurately on site. Much of the time, the lifting equipment just applies a small loading to the overall policy. If you have a fleet of vehicles, then cameras can be fitted. These give an accurate record in the event of a claim, and can help reduce costs preventing a third party claiming against you.

Deals in HGV Motor trade insurance under 25

Some brokers have access to specialist schemes, and owner drivers can receive a discount. This arises as the insurer perceives the risk to be well run, as only one or two people will be driving the vehicle. Often enough, Tippers will not be travelling huge distances, and will work quite close to their base. This can be viewed favourably by the insurer and so premiums can be kept low. If you repair and maintain you might ask can I have a motor traders policy or if you are a young driver can I have young persons policy under 25 so that the vehicles that I am working on are covered whilst in our possession. How much this will cost would depend on the number of years NCB on your current truck.
