Your courier insurance policy explained

We understand that when it comes to courier insurance some policy wording or terms may not be clear or well understood. This guide will help to provide you a clear understanding of your courier insurance policy.

Everything you need to know about courier insurance and becoming a self-employed courier driver

Are you considering becoming a courier driver for the first time or starting up your own courier business? By getting the right courier insurance you can start your new venture in the best possible way.

What does courier insurance cover?

If your business requires you to move goods for customers, it is essential that you’re legally covered on the road to keep your business moving. Obtaining the right courier insurance cover is dependent on the type of operation that you’re working in.

Is my business also covered through courier insurance if my vehicle is stolen or damaged?

As a courier driver, you spend hours on the road delivering your client’s goods.  The amount of time spent travelling between drop-off point’s means you’re exposed to accidents on the road on a daily basis, and the goods that you’re transporting can also be targeted by thieves. 

How to get an accurate courier van insurance quote

It’s important to get an accurate courier van insurance quote to make sure you get sufficient cover for your vehicle. To make this process a bit easier, here’s what information we’ll require to provide you with an accurate quote first time.

Can I get coverage for a courier van fleet under one policy?

We know that looking after a fleet of courier vans can be a bit of a juggling act. It’s up to you to manage the maintenance of the vehicles, deal with all the paperwork and look after your drivers.

Everything you need to know about courier van insurance for your business

Running your own courier business can be extremely rewarding, but not without its own challenges. That’s why having the correct courier insurance in place can give you peace of mind, knowing that your business is covered should there be a mishap.

 

Your courier insurance questions answered

Why do I need Courier Van Insurance?
As a courier you are transporting sometimes valuable goods for delivery – your average van insurance policy would not cover you for this. With Courier Van Insurance you are covered for hire and reward giving you peace of mind.
What’s the difference between courier van insurance and haulage insurance?
The main difference between a haulier and courier is that a courier will deliver goods to several drop-off points and a haulier will make one long journey to deliver goods to only one or a couple of places.
Can I transfer my car NCD onto my courier policy?
No, only courier NCD can be transferred but a second vehicle NCD can be applied to offer an introductory discount.
Is my vehicle covered abroad?
Yes, most policies will provide you with the minimum level of cover needed to follow the laws on the compulsory insurance of motor vehicles within any EU/EEA country.

However please remember the inclusive goods in transit cover does not operate outside of the territorial limits of the policy so this cover will only be operative within GB, NI, Channel Islands and Isle of Man.
I have comprehensive cover can I drive other vans?
You cannot drive other vehicles with courier insurance.
Can I add a driver to my policy?
Yes, as long as they meet restrictions;
  • They have no unspent criminal convictions
  • Age limitations will apply, please speak to one of our agents for further information
  • Licence limitations will apply, please speak to one of our agents for further information


For more information call us 0800 970 9980

Does my policy come with goods in transit cover?
Yes £10,000 goods in transit cover is included in all courier policies. Further cover can be provided with our optional goods in transit policy.

However please remember the inclusive goods in transit cover does not operate outside of the territorial limits of the policy so this cover will only be operative within GB, NI, Channel Islands and Isle of Man.
Does my policy come with public liability insurance?
No, public liability cover is not included. This can be purchased separately as an optional extra.
My partner is not a courier; can they use my van for leisure purposes?
Yes, if your spouse is named in the certificate they would be covered for SDP. For further information please call us 0800 970 9980
Can I use the van for leisure as well as work?
Yes, your van can be used for social domestic and pleasure purposes as well as hire and reward. Please be aware that using the vehicle for any other purpose will not be covered.
Why do I need to tell you about claims that occurred on another policy?
We require your complete driving history of up to 5 years to provide you with an accurate quote.
Do you do short term insurance? 
No, we offer courier van insurance for a minimum of 12 months.
Do you offer special discounts for network drivers?
Yes, we work with many networks so don’t forget to tell us when getting your quote.
