What is HGV insurance?
HGV insurance covers long-distance hauliers to transport freight, whether that’s their own goods or goods carried for hire and reward. Individual HGVs can be insured, though it is more common to combine 3 or more HGV vehicles into a single fleet policy. Cover can be arranged for vehicles and the freight carried. Speak to us about the type of goods you carry so we can advise on suitable, specialist cover for your business.

How much HGV insurance costs depends on the type of cover you choose, the number and type of vehicles, the goods you carry, who will be driving the vehicles, your history of claims, and more. You may be able to get cheaper insurance quotes by choosing a Named Driver policy for fleets, adjusting your level of cover and talking to our expert insurance team for further guidance.
What cover do I need in my HGV insurance policy?
When it comes to HGV insurance, the details of precisely what you or your business does can have a significant impact on your insurance policy. That’s why you need a specialist insurance broker on your side.
For example, you may carry frozen or refrigerated food.
If the vehicle broke down or the refrigeration failed, you may be held liable for the goods being rendered unusable. It might be that you carry very high value goods and so again your policy needs to reflect the exact nature of the risk.
Cover can also be arranged for:
Office or base cover
Goods in transit cover
