At last a realistic affordable Income Protection for Australia’sTruck owner drivers

Russell Snibson on the right track solving Income Protection for Australia's Truck Owner Drivers

It is no secret that the Transport Industry in Australia has not been blessed with a wide range of acceptable, cost-effective choices when it comes to insurances.

Most Australian truckies have been made aware of the horrific consequences of a disability from an accident or sickness preventing an owner driver from keeping the wheels turning. Families can be financially exposed and banks can dictate terms over debt while fire-sales ruin existing business and personal equity.

We all know that income protection is a must-have cover for your trucking business, because it generates a personal income stream to maintain family income. It also creates cash flow in the business to employ a sub-contractor to keep the truck wheels turning. The owner driver benefits, and the business stays healthy when the driver isn’t.

Workcover, if available, has let owner drivers down at times, where cover for sickness 24/7, or accidents outside work hours are not covered. Even if the event of a work accident, common accounting practices lowering taxable income for the truck driver can really hurt a Workcover claim.

At last an Insurer has properly understood the Truck and Transport Industry, and has come to the party with a clear market leader product that is thinly distributed and not widely known in the trucking industry.

Consider:

  • Weekly claim payment based on gross turnover, not taxable income. This allows a higher benefit.
  • No premium loadings for DG, interstate, or manual load.
  • No premium loadings for smokers.
  • No waiting period for 25 conditions. (eg broken wrist).
  • Day 3 cover for a hospital stay.
  • Level Premiums that do not increase every year with age.
  • Affordable realistic premiums.
  • Packaged tax deductible Life Insurance options.

Hino... helping Australia's truck transport grow

The Australian Truck Transport Industry is growing at a healthy rate, according to a recent published survey by the Australian Trucking Association, Truck Week 21/27 Feb 2010 showing Australian people are heavily reliant upon road transport freight.


The trucking industry carries ¾ of Australia’s domestic freight and the future looks bright with a predicted doubling of road freight up to 2030 with a 3.8% annual growth rate from 2011-2016.

The majority of road transport freight is moved intrastate with an expected high growth rate on the shorter interstate corridors like Sydney-Melbourne and Sydney-Brisbane.
Truck Transport segments:
1)      Short distance road freight… 55.8%
2)      Long distance intrastate… 22.8%
3)      Long distance interstate…21.4%
It all looks good for the truck transport road freight in Australia.

While visiting the recent 2011 Brisbane Truck Show and speaking with truck dealers and truck owner drivers, one common point of discussion that was regularly raised was truck insurance.


Truck Insurance can be a minefield at times, but with the right truck insurance agent or broker, truck insurance can be made easier for you.

Lead in time to start your truck and transport insurance is paramount. Giving your truck insurance agent or truck insurance broker enough time to search the truck insurance marketplace ensures that you are getting the right truck insurance.

The cheapest truck insurance premium does not always mean the best policy for your business. Look for all those protective add-ons that will give you confidence with the truck insurer you are dealing with.

Loss of work time and understanding that trucks are workplaces and people need to keep earning money is critical to understand from a truck insurer. So look for a company that strives to get you back on the road as quickly as possible.

High repair standards, counselling and support to drivers who have been involved in a road accident are just a few expectations you should automatically expect from your truck insurer.

Remember….. a truck insurance policy is a piece of paper… it’s a promise, so make sure the truck insurance company you are dealing with, delivers on their promise to you.
