Trucking exposures fall into either standard dock-to-dock freight movement, or non-standard trucking such as heavy-haulers or aggregate.  Whatever the mode, Thorn Valley can assess for-hire, private, over-the-road, regional, intermediate or local transporters of commercial property.  From large fleets in excess of 1,000 vehicles, to small “mom-and-pop” final mile delivery, most fall under the regulations if they operate vehicles 10,001+ lbs. Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW) unless specifically exempted under intrastate regulation.  It is a lot to keep track of – which is why Thorn Valley offers boots on the ground and/or telephonic consultation to guide your insureds towards full compliance.  With hundreds of years in industry experience, Thorn Valley is your go-to expert in commercial vehicle safety, compliance and loss control.

Areas of Focus

Bus & Coach

Charter buses, metro/city buses, school buses, and shuttle services are evaluated for safety practices and compliance with federal, state, and local regulations.

Crane & Boom Truck

While operators are not yet mandated to be crane or NCCCO certified in all States, our field specialists review all hazards, training and management practices to ensure safety policies are in place.

Concrete Pumpers

Maintenance, operation, situational awareness, and location are all evaluated. In addition our normal safety and compliance analysis is performed.

Limousine & Taxi

Special risks are affiliated with these types of business. Typically non-DOT regulated, the primary concerns are training, hiring, supervision, and driver turnover.

Para-Trans

Typically not federally regulated, but still require proper driver screening, safety training, supervision, and specialty training in the care and transport of disabled persons.

Ready Mix

Concurrent with normal safety and compliance concerns, our field specialists review the extra training and supervisory practices that are necessary for these risks to operate safely.

School Bus

Student transportation is highly regulated at the state and municipal levels, so it is important that loss control looks at state and local compliance as well as federal. The importance of ensuring that proper driver screening, safety training, and supervision cannot be overemphasized.

Towing & Repo

Most towing and recovery vehicles are subject to compliance with the Federal safety regulations. Our field specialists not only check for compliance with these regulations, but also ensure that proper chaining and securement, maintenance procedures, safety training, and at-scene safety policies are in place.

Trucking

Long haul, short haul, and local delivery trucking companies evaluated for proper hiring, training, safety, and compliance with the federal regulations.

Waste Hauler

Whether hazardous materials or normal waste, waste haulers must comply with the federal regulations. Our field personnel cover all aspects of safety, maintenance, and compliance when evaluating these risks. Special consideration is given to the special risks that these companies pose, such as load securement.
