Courier Insurance FAQs

What kind of vehicles do you cover?

We can cover all kinds of vehicles used by couriers. The largest size we cover that comes under courier insurance is 3.5 tonnes. Any larger vehicles will need HGV insurance.

Why do I need Courier Insurance - not Business Insurance?

We understand that being a courier is your business. However, business insurance will not cover the vehicles your business uses.

Business insurance is for the running of you business, and cover you for things such as liability and loss of license. Courier insurance is specifically for the vehicles that your business uses.

It is essential to have a specific courier policy as standard insurance more often than not excludes courier use. This is because of the addtional risks they face with always being on the road and the tasks that they carry out.

Can I still drive my van at the weekend?

Our courier 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.
