Food Delivery Insurance

If you deliver food and other groceries to peoples’ homes and places of business, you will need to get specialist insurance that properly protects you. Normal car or van insurance will not cover you to make deliveries. This is because there are different risks involved in making deliveries. At Alternative Insurance Brokers, we specialise in finding the policies that people need. Our Food Delivery Insurance policies cover what you really need them to.

Tailored to your Business

Every business is different. We know that what you deliver, where you deliver to and how many drop offs you make matters. Your insurance needs to work for you, and your business. That’s why we get to know you, and what you need your food delivery insurance to do. We cover grocers, farm shops, veg-box companies and many other people who might need Food Delivery Insurance.

We’ll need to know some basic information about you. Then, we need to know a bit about your vehicle and the sort of deliveries you do. After that, we can cover you for up to 30 days on a short term Food Delivery Insurance policy. We provide third party cover, so you can get out on the road and start making deliveries as quickly and cheaply as possible.

Contact Alternative Insurance Brokers today for a quote, and get out on the road.

Food Delivery Insurance FAQs

What kind of vehicles do you cover?

Alternative Insurance Brokers cover all kinds of vehicles used in food delivery. The largest size we cover that comes under food delivery insurance is 3.5 tonnes. Any larger vehicles would need HGV insurance.

Why do I need Food Delivery Insurance - not Business Insurance?

We understand that delivering food is your business. However, business insurance will not cover the vehicles your business uses.

Business insurance is more for the running of your business, and covers you for things such as liability and loss of license. Food Delivery Insurance is specifically for the vehicles that you use in making your deliveries.

It is essential to have a specific policy cover in place, as standard insurance more often than not excludes delivery use. This is because of the addtional risks that couriers face.

Can I still drive my van at the weekend?

Our food delivery insurance will still cover your van for social, domestic and pleasure usage. This means that you’ll still be covered to drive the vehicle outside of work.
