Legal and Insurance Issues for TruckIt.net Providers

Before you register as a TruckIt.net provider, it is important to consider all the legal and regulatory issues including - insurance, safety, OH&S, vehicle standards and licensing and accreditations.

 

´╗┐All TruckIt.net providers are legally responsible for the safety and roadworthiness of all vehicles used for TruckIt.net jobs.

 

If you intend using your truck or vehicle to undertake jobs on TruckIt.net, we encourage you to review your insurance policies to check what you are covered for. For instance, the loads you carry may not be covered under regular fleet or transport carrier insurance.

 

To help our providers, TruckIt.net has partnered with Australian Reliance Insurance Brokers to deliver a  comprehansive motor insurance policy with the best rates in the Transport and Logistics industry. This policy has been specifically tailored for TruckIt.net providers.

Heavy Vehicle Regulation

 

If you operate vehicles over 4.5 tonnes, it is also your responsibility to ensure that you, your company, drivers and other operators are familiar with and comply with the new National Heavy Vehicle Laws that came into effect on the 10th of February 2014.  

 

A full copy of the new laws can be found here.

 

But don’t forget that heavy vehicle registration, inspections, driver licensing and all matters related to the carriage of dangerous goods are still the responsibility of the relevant state and territory authorities.
