Long Haul Trucking with Pets
When long haul trucking with pets, there is no better agency than Seaman’s Insurance Group. For long haul truckers, loneliness is a hazard. Being on the road for days, and regularly encountering stressful situations. Truck drivers work under circumstances that contributes to loneliness, depression, sleep disturbances, anxiety, and emotional problems. Many truckers are looking to work for trucking companies that allow pets. Having man’s best friend on the road, offers companionship and fun.
We here at Seaman’s Insurance Group understand the importance of having man’s best friend with us as much as possible. As the owner of the agency Matt Seaman, sits here and develops this web page, his 60+ pound best friend is
doing his best impression of a lap dog. As a matter of fact, he broke our 1st office lease several weeks after he opened this agency when the owner of the building insisted dogs were not allowed in the building. This is after it was confirmed with the property manager that we would be able to bring our 4 footed family member into the office with us every day before signing the lease.
Trucking companies, truckers, and health professionals are always working to find ways to help with loneliness and stress. Having a companion can help combat isolation, but it’s difficult to find a passenger with the time and willingness to join truckers for road trips. Bringing your pet makes perfect sense to help you navigate your way.
A groundbreaking legal decision from not very long ago set a precedent for the use of support animals on the job. A trucking company was found in violation of the law by disallowing a trucking applicant to continue through the hiring process because the applicant used a service animal.
For trucking companies considering allowing pets, or those that are working with applicants using service animals, liability can be a concern. Insurance is already vital in the trucking industry, protecting against liability and damage. Allowing pets adds one more potential risk.
