Heavy-Haul Trucking Insurance


Heavy-Duty Protection for Heavy-Haul Trucking

Heavy-haul trucking—also known as oversize-load or wide-load trucking—refers to loads that typically exceed standard limits in terms of weight or size as they relate to state and federal guidelines, though it can also include loads that are otherwise conventional in terms of size but exceed 80,000 pounds of gross weight. It frequently requires not only a specialized trailer designed to safely carry the excess weight, length, or width, but also special routing, escorts, and permitting.

The Insurance Store understands that heavy-haul trucking requires a number of additional steps, and can build a custom insurance policy to ensure you’re protected out on the road.

  • Truck Liability

    Liability coverage is required by law. This covers expenses should you be at fault for an accident that causes injury or damage to another party.

  • Physical Damage

    Also known as comp and collision coverage. This pays to get your truck repaired and back on the road after an accident or other covered loss.

  • Motor Truck Cargo

    This is insurance coverage for the oversized cargo you are transporting.
