Frequently Asked Questions About Courier Insurance

    • What counts as a ‘Courier’?
      Most people who own a commercial vehicle will be carrying some form of goods at all times. However, courier insurance is different as these goods usually do not belong to them, which means if something happens to the items in their possession, they have to cover the cost. Depending on your vehicle and the nature of your business, you could be carrying pizzas, clothes, or expensive electronics. No matter what it is, it needs protection, not only for the safety of your company but also for your driver.
    • How can Courier Insurance help me?
      Courier insurance can protect your business in a number of ways: firstly, it covers your vehicles so that if they are involved in an accident they can be fixed quickly and be back on the road as soon as possible. Secondly, courier insurance providers understand that both your vehicles and your drivers are more likely to be targeted by thieves than most other vehicle owners. With this in mind, your policy can help cover the costs of your goods, while also protecting your drivers should the worst happen.
    • Can I transport goods to Europe?
      Delivering goods to Europe can be lucrative for a courier, and that is why there are a number of policies out there that will cover you for a certain amount of time in EU countries. Some policies can cover you for up to 90 days in any one period of your courier insurance. If you may need to transport goods to Europe, then make sure you have this included in your courier insurance quote before you purchase it.
    • Will goods be covered whilst in my vehicle overnight?
      If your vehicle is locked in a garage or kept in a secure compound, which has secure walls, and/or fences and locked gates overnight, then the goods in your vehicle will remain covered by your courier insurance policy. If you leave your vehicle on the street however, then you may risk your insurance company refusing to pay out in the event of a claim.
    • Will it be possible to cover more than one vehicle on the same policy?
      When applying for a courier insurance quote, it is possible to insure more than one vehicle on the same policy. This could save you time and money. However, you will then be able to add vehicles to your policy at a later date, just in case you need to.
    • Is it possible to have young or inexperienced drivers driving?
      Yes, it is certainly possible to allow young or inexperienced drivers to transport goods for you under your courier insurance policy. However, it is likely that young and inexperienced drivers will result in higher insurance premiums.
    • I am doing 25 to 40 drops per day, will I therefore be classed as a courier and do I need specialist insurance?
      Yes, you will be classed as a courier because of the number of drops you do each day. You must now take out a courier insurance policy. In the UK it is a legal requirement to have a basic insurance policy if you use a vehicle to travel on the public roads with, if you are a courier, you will need an additional courier insurance policy.
