Our aim to be more than just an insurance broker means that we provide hauliers, couriers and fleet managers with comprehensive insurance protection, but also use our years of experience, and eyes and ears, to assess your business impartially and suggest where doing things slightly differently could save you tangible sums of money, not just at next renewal, but in the longer term too.
This means that you receive a double benefit from Gauntlet; insurance cover that will safeguard you, at the right price, and also a reduction in day-to-day costs - which positively contributes to your bottom line profitability.
Our approach in the haulage sector is to work in partnership with hauliers and fleet managers, looking at behaviours within their businesses and how operations, and driver habits, could be improved, to enable your business to be treated far more favourably by insurers. By changing the culture of your organisation here and there, we can deliver the type of saving that other clients have benefited from and been delighted by.
Given this approach, shouldn’t you be on the road with Gauntlet?
Gauntlet Haulage is a specialist when it comes to arranging fleet insurance and answering the needs of those with a multi-vehicle operation. Our team understands the requirements of the fleet operator and the circumstances that can cause insurance claims to arise within a fleet-based business.
Whether you are in warehousing or groupage, freight forwarding or the courier sector, you are operating in a world in which the claims culture is rife. Having a big liability claim hit your business could be a massive financial blow, which is why you need to get the right protection in place, through liability insurance.
Public Liability Insurance
Haulage and courier vehicles, given the nature of the business, the size of vehicles and the type of areas in which they operate, are particularly prone to claims arising from scenarios in which members of the public have been injured or suffered a loss, having come into contact with a vehicle.
Goods in Transit Insurance
Haulage and freight forwarding firms, transporting goods and materials on behalf of other companies need a goods in transit insurance policy that will protect the cargo whilst it is in their custody and control and until it reaches its final destination.
Engineering Inspection Insurance
Hauliers working in a sector in which plant, lifting gear and other mechanical equipment is part and parcel of daily life, should consider Engineering Inspection insurance (EI). This insurance will cover the vital inspections that you require, in order to keep your staff and visitors safe and will be carried out by a fully qualified and competent surveyor. As many of these surveyors work across different sectors, they can often inspect a variety of machinery during a single visit.
Legal Expenses Insurance
This type of insurance cover is a must for hauliers and couriers who do not wish to suffer losses when they are involved in a no-fault accident. The chance of this happening to those travelling thousands of miles a year is much greater than if they were the average motorist, so legal expenses insurance can be a godsend for those wishing to pursue a claim, if they believe they deserve to be compensated for a loss, or an injury sustained.
