Why Miles Smith?
Industry solution summary
At Miles Smith our approach is to arrange bespoke cover to best suit our clients’ business requirements. We are able to arrange policies to cover motor, liability, transit and property covers. As well as this, as a haulage contractor or courier, you’ll often be in possession of valuable goods. If these were to be lost, stolen or damaged you may be held liable by your client, and the costs need to be accounted for by arranging appropriate insurance.
We have long-standing relationships with leading insurers in this sector, as well as access to the wider market, which allows us to source the right cover for you and your business. In addition to this, risk management plays a fundamentally important role when it comes to haulage insurance. We’ll work with you, wherever possible, to put in place good practice across your risks, demonstrating to insurance companies that you present an acceptable risk for them to provide your business with the cover it needs.
Our approach to arranging insurance for your haulage business is tailored to your organisation, ensuring you have the cover that you need. The types of products we look at for haulage businesses includes:
