Why Haulage Firms need a Personal Broker

Haulage insurance is a crucial aspect of any transportation business. It protects business owners from financial losses arising from theft, damage to goods in transit, accidents and other unforeseen events. However, finding the right haulage insurance policy can be a daunting task, especially for those who are new to the industry. This is where a personal broker can be an asset.

A personal broker is an experienced professional who can help you navigate the complexities of the insurance market and find the best insurance policies for your business. Here are some reasons why you need a personal broker for your haulage insurance:

Experience and expertise

Personal brokers have years of experience in the insurance industry and a wealth of knowledge about different insurance policies. They have dealt with various scenarios, claims, and issues, so they know what works best for different businesses. They can leverage their experience and expertise to help you choose the right insurance policy that meets your specific needs.


As a business owner, you already have a lot on your plate, and finding the right insurance policy can take up a considerable amount of your time. A personal broker can save you time by doing the legwork for you. They can research different policies, compare quotes and negotiate with insurers on your behalf, freeing up your time to focus on running your business.

Tailored policies

A personal broker can help you find a policy that is tailored to your specific needs. They can assess your business's risks and recommend insurance policies that cover the risks unique to your business. This can ensure that you are adequately covered and don't end up paying for coverage you don't need.

Claims handling

In the event of an accident or loss, a personal broker can assist you with the claims process. They can help you understand your policy, file your claim and negotiate with insurers on your behalf. This can help ensure that your claim goes through without a hitch. Here at Ascend, we have haulage experts standing by to help you on any issue within the industry.
