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.
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.
