Type of Insurance for Trucks in Singapore
Commercial vehicle insurance for trucks is commonly available in 3 types of coverage. Not specific to motor insurance plans from any insurer, the scope of coverage is generally as follows:
Third Party liability coverage + Fire and Theft coverage + Own Damage coverage
Third Party liability coverage + Fire and Theft coverage
Third Party liability coverage only
Exact coverage definitions and details will differ from insurer to insurer and is subject to its policy terms, conditions and exclusions.
There are usually 2 variants of the Comprehensive Cover available – one plan that lets policyholder choose any preferred workshop for accident repairs and another plan that lets policyholder select from a list of authorised workshops for accident repairs.
Out of the 3 types of coverage, premium rates for Third Party Cover is the lowest because the scope of insurance protection and benefits is also the least.
Commercial Truck Insurance Premiums
Under commercial vehicle insurance, No Claim Discount (NCD) is capped at a maximum of 20%.
Premiums quoted for your commercial truck insurance can vary based on factors such as the nature of business and vehicle usage.
How insured vehicle usage affects premiums
The insurance premiums for the same model of truck can be different for a business in the transportation industry compared to that of a business that supplies gas.
As gas cylinders are flammable and explosive in nature, the business that supplies gas is very likely to incur a higher risk to the insurer and insurance premiums will definitely be higher for the truck used to transport gas cylinders than the truck used to transport non flammable, non corrosive and non explosive goods.
It is important to note that vehicle usage should be kept to the Limitations as to Use of the Certificate of Insurance.
If a truck is used in a way that is not covered under the insured vehicle usage, the motor insurer is generally not liable for any accident, loss, damage or liability caused, sustained or incurred.
