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.

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.

No, only courier NCD can be transferred but a second vehicle NCD can be applied to offer an introductory discount.
