Request a Call Back

Whether your goods are being transported in a standard white van or a large Heavy Goods Vehicle, the situation is still the same i.e. the carriage of goods for hire or reward.

We can arrange Fleet insurance from a single van to a multi-vehicle operation including fleets of cars, vans and a range of national and international lorries and other large vehicles.

Insurance Needs

Whether the deliveries are to a single point not only does the vehicle need insuring but also the goods whilst in transit. They may become lost, damaged or be delayed in delivery which could incur a financial loss and affect the business.

Duty of Care 

As a business owner, you have a responsibility to make sure the goods are delivered professionally and within agreed timescales.

The responsibilities on yourselves include:

  • Making sure drivers are trained correctly to be safety conscious and look after their vehicle but also be mindful of others around them.
  • To make sure the vehicles are properly maintained and fit for purpose for the goods that are transported.
  • The packaging of the goods is fit for purpose and secured correctly.
  • Your customer is kept abreast at all times of the delivery should there be delays.
