Frequently Asked Questions for Transport Insurance

Do I need Load Insurance?

Load insurance protects the Chain of Responsibility. The Competition and Consumer Act, including any contracts between you and the Freight Forwarding Agent will dictate, however our advice is to get Load Insurance, as it can protect you in the event of damage or loss.

Can I pay my premiums by the month?

Yes. All insurance offered by Austbrokers Comsure can be paid by the month through premium funders. If you chose to use the premium funder’s service, your monthly installments will be tax deductible.

When do I ring about a Radius Extension?

Be warned some companies believe if your journey states “base to a destination beyond your normal radius” you are outside of the radius when you leave the base. Others say you are “out of radius” when you reach the radius limit. Seek professional advice from your Austbrokers Comsure Adviser.

What Liability Covers are available and do I need them all?

Yes – we suggest reviewing the following liability covers to ensure you are protected in the event of a claim:

1.) CTP Third Party Bodily Injury;

2.) Motor Section Liability covers damage by your truck;

3.) Public Liability covers you outside of your truck.

I don’t have much driving experience, can I still get cover?

Yes. Austbrokers Comsure has the ability to sort this for you. All we need is your driving history. The more experience you have, discounts may apply after years of driving and a good driving record.
