This applies to those who do not have hazmat for truckers insurance in place. If you do not have an active hazmat policy. Then you would be considered a new venture to our hazmat insurance companies.
Here are some of their requirements:
- Owner must be a driver.
- All drivers must have had their hazmat endorsement for 2 years.
- The insurance companies will require a work history for the owners and drivers.
- They are looking to see what hazmat you have been hauling and actually prefer you will be hauling what you have experience hauling.
- They will not allow Class 1 for hazmat startups.
