Why should you choose specialist vehicle insurance?

Here at Truck Assist, we’re not just any insurer; we’re truck specialists. But what difference does that actually make and why would you pick a specialist truck insurer over a general insurer?  Well, to put it simply, your business is our business. 

We’re backed by Australia’s no.1 truck insurer, NTI, and with over 45 years of expertise in the transport industry, we’re equipped to deal with whatever comes your way.

Unlike other insurers, we don’t just offer stock standard products, we go above and beyond to take care of truck owners regardless of what industry you’re in. We’ve created Truck Assist Roadside Assistance and Drive Pack, offering comprehensive commercial truck insurance to cover small, light and heavy trucks.  

You can buy everything from used bobcats to cold beer online, but why not truck insurance? So we created Australia’s first ever online truck insurance so you can get a quote and purchase cover 24/7.

Unlike general insurers, we’ve tailored our policies to meet your unique needs of any truck owner, with a truckload of benefits, automatic and optional inclusions to keep you fit for duty and on the road.

Only a specialist can understand the unique challenges of running a truck in your business, so we’ve designed our Drive Pack and Roadside Assistance packages with the driver and business, not just the vehicle, in mind.

Drive Pack

Our Drive Pack cover includes comprehensive motor cover and covers loss or damage, and includes third party liability and variable excesses. There are also cover options that can be tailored to your specific needs and budget. We offer an agreed value on trucks with 3.5 to 4.5t GVM and if that’s not enough, we also offer a 3 year replacement on new trucks.

We understand that when your truck stops, your business stops, so we won’t let an accident get you down. Downtime Cover is an automatic inclusion in Drive Pack, so you can receive weekly cash payments that take care of your business expenses when your eligible vehicle is out of action… and it won’t be subject to submission of records or receipts!

Better still, you won’t have to worry about chasing us up after you’ve lodged a claim, because our award winning claims team will do all the heavy lifting and keep you regularly informed on the process.

If the worst happens and you need a little support, Truck Assist’s trauma counselling is not just a benefit, it as an automatic inclusion available to those who want a hand getting back on their feet following an incident.

Most insurers are only there if you have an accident but with Truck Assist Drive Pack, we’re there if you truck stops for any other reason too, with our inclusive truck breakdown service. One of the ongoing benefits offered under our Drive Pack insurance package is basic breakdown cover, offering you access to over 4,000 service providers including suppliers, technicians, and heavy truck operators across the country 24/7 for some of the most common breakdown events..

Roadside Assistance

In addition to the cracker benefits offered under our Drive Pack cover, we also offer standalone Roadside Assistance. These are separate, full service Roadside Assistance packages to ensure you are covered no matter where or when you travel.

Had a breakdown or got a flat battery? Or maybe you just need a tyre change? We’ve got a national network of experienced diesel mechanics & technicians trained in current technologies so you’ll be back on the road before you can say “Bob’s your uncle.” And if for any reason it’s not a quick fix, we’ll cover the cost of getting you home and towing the vehicle to be repaired by our nearest service provider.

So, whether you’re a florist, baker, truckie, or tradie relying on your truck to keep your business up and running, a specialist is the best choice for truck insurance and roadside assistance.
