Western Star Cover

Western Star Trucks

Yes, at Gerrards, we can arrange insurance coverage for all types of Western Star trucks, from the most basic models, such as the Western Star 4700, to the newest and high-end models like the Western Star 5700XE. No matter the tier of your Western Star truck, we've got you covered.

Types of Cover

Single Vehicle (Comprehensive)

Comprehensive cover is the most inclusive insurance option for your Western Star truck. It covers damages to your truck, theft, and third-party liabilities. It's ideal for individual owners who want peace of mind knowing their investment is protected against a wide range of incidents.

Fleet (Approximately 15 or More Vehicles)

For businesses operating a fleet of 15 or more Western Star trucks, Fleet insurance provides a streamlined and cost-effective way to manage your vehicles' insurance needs. It covers all trucks under one policy, simplifying administration and potentially reducing premiums.

Loss of Use

If your Western Star truck is out of operation due to a covered loss, Loss of Use cover supports the cost of hiring a substitute vehicle. This ensures you can keep your business running smoothly, even when your primary vehicle is being repaired or replaced. This cover kicks in under specific conditions, ensuring you're not left stranded without a vehicle.

Third Party Fire and Theft

This insurance option covers your truck for damages caused to third parties, as well as loss due to fire or theft of your Western Star truck. It's a middle-ground coverage option, providing more protection than Third Party Only but less than Comprehensive cover.

Third Party Only

Third Party Only insurance is the most basic level of cover, protecting you against liabilities for damages your truck might cause to other people or property. It does not cover damages to your own truck, making it the most affordable option for those on a tight budget.
