At Isis Insurance, we want to do more than just provide you with comprehensive lorry insurance – we want to be able to make the running of your business easier and make a genuine difference to your bottom line.
For example, many business owners underestimate how complicated it can be to get a new vehicle on the road, beyond just arranging lorry insurance. It’s not simply a question of purchasing a new truck and putting it straight on the road, as you will need to obtain the relevant operator’s licence before you can include any vehicle weighing more than 3.5 tonnes as part of your business. However, to make matters more complicated, there are certain exceptions to this rule, such as vehicles used before 1977 or that are only on the road for less than six miles each week. Around 99% of vehicles will require one, but it can be difficult to ascertain whether your vehicle will be one of the 1% due to the number of different rules involved.
Fortunately, we can make this process more straightforward for you. In fact, we have an information booklet on the subject that we send to our clients upon request which sets out what you do and don’t need to do and can also refer you to experts on the subject if necessary. This way, you can make sure that you are entitled to have your new vehicles on the road, while we can make sure that they are properly covered as part of your existing lorry insurance policy.
