Insurance paperwork

It is very rare for us at Independent Freight but admittedly it can happen.

The movement of freight and bad weather can occasionally mean that cargo ends up damaged.

To this end our customers often ask for complete peace of mind.

Through our FSA regulated partners we provide a high quality insurance product that gives customers the assurance that their cargo is safely insured against partial or complete loss.

If you need additional insurance or advice on what you are protected against please do not hesitate to contact one of our experts in the Operations team.

Call us today on 024 7634 3037 – we will be happy to help.
