Cargo Insurance & Freight Insurance in South Gate, Bellflower, and Van Nuys, CA

The ability to move products from one place to another is the backbone of our entire economy. Whether you're moving products from a port to a store for sale, helping people move between homes, or transporting raw materials for manufacturing, you know how important it is to get the job done safely and on time. However, without cargo insurance and freight insurance, your business could be at risk if any of your trucks is involved in a serious collision.

You already know how important it is to complete a job correctly. From ensuring loads are packed securely to recruiting safe drivers, you're constantly invested in making your business the best it can be. ANA Insurance Brokerage, Inc. can help make sure your efforts are protected, and that if something does go wrong, you'll be able to continue operating.

Cargo Insurance Coverage—What's Covered and What's Excluded

Most cargo that is shipped under a proper bill of lading will be covered by your cargo insurance. Major exclusions include, but are not limited to:

  • Alcohol, Tobacco, some medicines, and any illegal drugs
  • Currency and Valuables (especially art, jewelry, coins, and cash)
  • Items considered dangerous (acids, explosives, or radioactive items, including some fireworks and other celebratory products)
  • Living creatures
  • Anything owned by your company

If you plan to ship anything excluded from cargo insurance, it may be covered by another policy (especially if you own the items in question). Otherwise, you can talk to one of our agents about alternatives for cargo insurance and freight insurance that can actually cover the transportation of high-risk items.

Freight Insurance Coverage—Large and Small Freight Shipping Coverage

Your shipping volume is a major factor in finding just how much insurance you need. In 2014, there were over 400,000 collisions involving large trucks, which comes out to over 1100 collisions every single day. The majority of these incidents are not the fault of the commercial truck driver, but the simple truth of the matter is that they do occur on a regular basis.

It's also important to note that collisions are not the only forms of loss—theft is a major problem in some areas, and average losses approach a quarter‑million dollars per incident.

Larger trucking companies require more insurance in case there are problems with multiple vehicles, such as thefts from multiple trucks parked in one place. Even smaller companies are at risk, though, making cargo insurance and freight insurance one of the most important defenses of any hauling company.

Testimonials

My mother was the first to use Ana Insurance and she always had a great experience and saved a LOT of money. So when I bought my car she suggested that I go to Ana's, too, and I have saved a lot of money, myself, as well as enjoying the personal touches that Freddy and Corin have always provided. I will never go anywhere else for insurance.

Switched from other broker of Mercury Insurance to come to ANA. They have a very friendly yet extremely professional environment and I see them like family. Truly the best decision I ever made!

B. Abrams
Marlyn is awesome at what she does. Her customer service and personality makes you feel welcomed. I highly recommend Marlyn for all your insurance needs.

R. Reyes
Great insurance, love this place. I had insurance with this company before but had to change it because it got too expensive. I ended up with Freeway Insurance and regretted it later because of several problems. The biggest one was that they lied to me by saying that my payment came back with insufficient funds and had to get a bank statement to prove otherwise. Never had this problem before with ANA and I doubt I ever will. Alex was my agent and he did a great job in finding a good deal.
