The Beginner’s Guide to Courier Insurance

If you’re new to the courier business, you may well be wondering what specialist courier insurance is all about – how is it different from standard car insurance, for instance, and how can it help you fulfil your job? We offer fantastic cheap courier insurance, but before you decide how useful it will be for your own company, let us tell you how it works and who it can help!

So What Will Courier Insurance Cover?

At the most basic level, courier insurance will allow you to insure your van – or fleet of vans – with third party, fire and theft, or comprehensive cover, allowing for increased peace of mind as you or your team cart your goods around the country.  It’s also important to be aware of the correct use for this type of insurance: ‘carriage of goods for hire and reward’.

On top of that, however, there are also a bunch of other options available which could be very helpful for those in the courier industry. Goods in transit insurance, for instance, will help you to protect the items that you’re transporting, while courier breakdown cover means that you never need to be stuck at the side of the road with somebody’s parcels! You can also consider options such as fleet insurance if you have a larger operation and want to ensure that every vehicle is covered.

Will I Qualify?

If you’re a courier… then yes! It may seem like an overly simple answer, but sometimes people think that their operation is too small to qualify, or else they think that the relatively small quantity (or value) of the goods that they transport means that they don’t need to worry about it. This is wrong in both cases; even one courier alone with a small van or car will be able to get some sort of specialist insurance, and if something goes wrong you’ll be very glad that you opted for the better-safe-than-sorry approach.
