Commercial HGV Insurance Becoming More Popular
Published: 08/02/10

Most recent trends suggest that the importance of HGV insurance has undergone a sharp change in recent times, with more and more HGVs or Heavy Goods Vehicles being chosen to be nominees of these insurances. A Heavy Goods Vehicle can be categorised to be a vehicle that is used to carry a load that weighs more than four tons. Largely associated with the different HGVs in the United Kingdom, as well as those of different countries of the European Union, HGV insurance (or truck insurance) is generally chosen to protect trucks as well as trailers.

This trend owes its origin, as most experts feel, to the alarming rise in the number of accidents that concern these Heavy Goods Vehicles, which in turn can be extremely harmful to the overall profit of the business, as well as the welfare of the employees. The costs of these HGV insurances too, will vary in accordance with the nature of the business as well as the make and the age of the vehicle in question.

Though useful and popular, recent users in the United Kingdom have also pointed out certain negative aspects of this form of insurance. Most companies dealing in this form of insurance insist on being paid the complete amount of the bond or surety that will be required for the policy before the policy is approved.

There is also a growing concern regarding the policies being extremely expensive, a concern that is gradually reducing the number of people applying for HGVs. However, according to some insurance companies, the cost of an HGV policy can be considerably reduced if there are certain safety measures that are adopted by the owners of the vehicles. These can include clauses such as fire alarms as well as theft alarms. Many organisations also give credit points in cases where the vehicle in question has a fire extinguisher.
