If a dump truck is part of your business operation, you understand the importance of insurance for that vehicle. All vehicles need to be insured, of course, but dump truck insurance can make sure you are covered from unique issues related only to a dump truck.
Heyer Spear Insurance, Inc. agents can help you with basic insurance on the vehicle itself that protects from standard risks, but dump trucks are also vulnerable to the following hazards, and require additional insurance:
- Hauling heavy or jagged material could damage the truck
- Dump trucks often operate where no roads exist
- Breakdowns that cost you time and money; you can avoid the financial loss with adequate dump truck insurance
Dump Truck Insurance Features
If you have employees operating your dump truck, you need workers’ compensation insurance. If someone is injured while working, you want them to be covered, as required by law.
Consider, too, liability. Your truck could get into an accident, and most policies cover that. However, you may also be working on another person’s property and may need liability insurance to protect you if your truck has an accident and causes personal or property damage. In those cases, it is not just lost operating time that matters; you could be facing a lawsuit.
Heyer Spear Insurance, Inc. agents are familiar with the differences between state insurance regulations and requirements, and can assist you even if you work in more than one state.
