The Worst Case, Yet Frequent, Scenario
It’s your job as a horse transporter to provide safe, secure, comfortable and stress free transportation for your customers’ animals. At Shearwater, we aim to make these journeys a whole lot easier for you with specialist Horse Transporter Liability Insurance to ensure your finances are protected should a claim arise.
Whilst the horses in your care are being moved from A-B, your responsibilities towards them can be covered with care, custody, and control insurance. Whether or not you have grooms or vets to hand throughout the journey, if you or as a company are deemed responsible in the event of the animal’s injury, or losing control of a horse by the side of the road, care, custody and control (known as CCC) will cover you for this if you or your company are deemed responsible.
Policy options include:
- Public liability
- Employers liability
- Care, custody and control
The Vehicle Insurance
Your horsebox will need to be covered for hire and reward use. This will give you the legal cover you need to be on the road so you don’t incur the costs racked up after causing an accident while on the road. This policy can also include optional extras such as breakdown, windscreen and legal expenses cover.
By law, if you are moving goods, in this case, horses, ponies and donkeys in exchange for money, you must have the relevant certificate and qualification to cover equine transit for journeys. Without this, you will not be able to put this insurance in place.
If your business revolves entirely around the safe transportation of other people’s horses, there is nothing to gain by opting for substandard insurance, as the risks could just be too great. At Shearwater we know precisely what cover you need in place to be well protected in your business operations, while giving your customers the confidence in your services. We also include Public Liability as standard.
