Commercial vehicle insurance

What is Commercial Vehicle Insurance?

Commercial Vehicle Insurance as the name suggests provides the insurance cover for your vehicles that you use commercially in the course of running your business.

Depending on the cover type It protects you against:
  • Accident
  • Theft
  • Third party damages, Australia wide.

These vehicles could be a van, a ute, a truck or a trailer. Vehicles upto a maximum of 5 Tonnes are generally covered under Commercial Vehicle Insurance but this limit varies with different insurers and occupations. We can help find the right cover for your vehicles. Talk to us for an obligation free quote.

Vehicles greater than 5 Tonnes can be insured under Heavy Vehicle Insurance or specialist Plant & Equipment Insurance.

Who needs Commercial Vehicle Insurance?

If you use your vehicle for business purposes, then that should be insured under Commercial Vehicle Insurance. Not that we need to convince you that a Trailer mounted generator or a wood chipper would pass the test of personal usage, we often hear stories where people think their personal car insurance will cover their commercial vehicles too.

If you are a chippy who carries all their tools in a solid trailer behind your ute, you should insure both the ute and trailer under Commercial Vehicle Insurance.

How much does Commercial Vehicle Insurance cost?

Commercial vehicle insurance pricing can vary a lot, depending on the type of vehicle, the age of the drivers, whether it is in a locked up garage or on the street, the suburb or postcode of your garaged location. Insurers look at a range of risk factors to decide what is the right price.

Fortunately, there is strong competition amongst insurers to get your business so they keep the pricing pretty sharp and we work hard to find the right deal for you.
