Types of cover

Heavy Vehicle Transport Insurance

The Heavy Motor Transport sector of insurance is very competitive when it comes to price. But price is not everything. CPR Insurance suggest you consider a cover that will more suit your business. You need rapid responses and fast turnaround of paperwork. Insurers with the latest technology and systems, and a claims department when it is needed that will provide you with the best possible service.

So don’t just choose on price, though we will always seek to get you the best cover at the best price.

Claims Service – why else do you bother to insure? 

You want a claims service to be available Australia Wide through broad national networks of approved, Independent Loss Assessors, using your own choice of repairer . 
On staff assessors who get their salary from the insurers may possibly have the aim of cost cutting rather than making sure you get the best quality repair work. 
Choose an insurer who doesn’t insist that repairers obtain parts for the repair of your vehicle from a particular source. Repairers should be free to conduct the repair of an insured vehicle in the best & fastest manner possible, in consultation with the Independent Loss Assessors.
Try to get an Insurer who doesn’t try to encourage you to use particular repairers with whom they may have come to certain prior agreements, by labelling them as Recommended Repairers. You should have complete freedom to choose the repairer you want.

 Seek a Non Placarded Dangerous Goods liability Cover including Asbestos

D&O premium pool ‘must treble’ to return to profitability

A new report – called "Show Me The Money!" by insurer XL Catlin and law firm Wotton + Kearney – is the second in a series of three white papers on securities class actions and their impact on the Directors & Officers Liability (D&O) market. The main conclusion is that Directors’ and officers’ (D&O) insurance premiums are under-priced significantly and need to rise strongly to restore profitability. The main risk areas are those exposed to securities class actions, 

It says Directors & Officer's Side A, Side B and Side C cover has been chronically underpriced since at least 2011, while the frequency of class actions is increasing as more plaintiff lawyers and litigation funders enter the space.

The analysis suggests last year’s overall premium pool of about $210 million would need to increase by at least three times to establish a profitable market, if it is assumed all other factors stay unchanged.

“Recent market developments would indicate most D&O insurers are now endeavouring to restore some semblance of profitability to their portfolios after years of market losses,” the report says.
