Got a question?

Why do I need courier van insurance?
As a courier you are often carrying valuable items. Your normal van insurance doesn’t cover these and it is not applicable to this type of business. You need Hire and Reward cover, and courier van insurance provides this.

Will my policy include Goods In Transit insurance?
Yes, up to £10,000. If you often carry cargo worth more you’ll require additional Goods In Transit cover. You’ll also need a specialist Goods In Transit policy if you are going outside GB, NI, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man.

Will my policy include Public Liability insurance?
No. Check here for full details.

Courier Van v Haulage Insurance, what’s the difference?
They are different types of business, and so require different policies. A courier delivers to several places per journey, whereas a haulier generally delivers to one or two.

Will my car NCD transfer to my Courier Van insurance?
No, only a courier no claims discount can be transferred.

If I have comprehensive insurance, can I drive other vans?
No, you are not able to drive other vans with courier insurance.

Will my spouse be able to drive for leisure purposes?
Yes, provided they are named in the certificate they will be covered for SDP. If you need more information, contact us on 01625 854 922.

What information will you require from me?
We’d need a full 5 years driving history to provide you with an accurate quote, including claims made on another policy.

Will my cover be effective abroad?
Most policies provide the minimum level of cover needed to follow the compulsory insurance of motor vehicles laws in any EU/EEA country. However please remember the inclusive goods in transit cover does not apply beyond the territorial limits of the policy and will only be operative within GB, NI, Channel Islands and Isle of Man.
