What You Need to Know About Forklift Truck Insurance
Forklift truck insurance may differ greatly to other commercial vehicle policies in that it is not always used on public roads. If this is the case then certain legal requirements may not be relevant. That is not to say that there are no legal requirements involved, however, and these will depend on a number of circumstances that includes use in any public space so some research is needed in these circumstances.
Whatever the legal requirements are, the fact remains that it is unwise to be under-insured when working in dangerous environments, such as the lifting of heavy weights that is associated with forklift truck use, not to mention the value of the machine and items it handles. There are many unforeseen events that can occur when working with equipment and vehicles of this kind, and damage to property and persons is a constant consideration that should be taken seriously for risk of catastrophic insurance events.
