Keeping your haulage clients on the road

Yutree are specialists in the provision of liability insurance. We have rates for over 600 trades and can, therefore, quote for most liability risks.

One of the trades, which we have a particular specialism in, is road haulage. Our underwriters have a long history of underwriting liability insurance for the haulage sector. We can advise you on your clients’ requirements whether they are an owner operator, a large fleet operator, a freight forwarder, operating car transporters, driving into Europe, employing mechanics, requiring cover for warehousing, carrying hazardous goods or based in Northern Ireland.


An example of where we are frequently asked for advice is the area of operator’s licences. Haulage contractors require an operator’s licence where their vehicles have a gross plated weight of over 3.5 tonnes or an unladen weight of 1.525 tonnes, where there is no plated weight. There are some exemptions to this rule which we can talk you through although, more commonly arising, there is a misconception in the sector that hauliers can operate under each other’s licences or can circumnavigate this rule in other ways. It is, therefore, important that you are clear as to what your client requires so that, as their broker, you can make certain that they are not invalidating their insurance by operating outside of the law. Please call us if you are unsure and we will be happy to advise you.
