Courier Driver Insurance

Now is a great time to be a busy courier. Whether you are independent and self-employed – either full-time or just making money using your own car, van or motorbike – or working for a growing firm with a fleet of vehicles – you have seen how demand keeps growing for courier services.

People want everything delivering straight away, from online clothes orders on evenings and weekends, to food and drinks from restaurants and bars all over towns and cities. Being busy is good, but that means couriers are driving more, which means having the right insurance is vital for keeping costs low and protecting you and your vehicle on the road.

Getting the right courier insurance depends on several factors: whether the driver is self-employed or employed by a courier company, the type of vehicle and any other cover they need, such as goods in transit insurance, or public liability.

Drivers are automatically insured, whenever a vehicle is protected by a policy, with individual drivers only insured separately when one driver is insured to drive multiple vehicles as part of a fleet policy. These are popular and cost effective policies for courier firms since this allows for multiple drivers to use a range of vehicles, so every employee and car, van or motorbike is listed in the fleet policy.

Courier Driver Insurance

We have seen the sector grow quickly, which is why there are thousands of new self-employed drivers on the road operating as couriers. When you are self-employed, you need to make sure you are fully insured, even when you are contracted to a larger courier firm. This means selecting the right vehicle insurance – depending on what you drive – and any extras, such as public liability and goods in transit.

Not having the correct insurance can have serious consequences for your business, with just one road accident able to ruin your reputation, damage your vehicle, or injure other road users, including pedestrians.

Vans, cars, and motorbikes are all eligible for courier business insurance. Obtaining the relevant cover is essential to protect you, the driver, the vehicle – from an accident, theft or fire – and the business. Whereas, goods in transit protects the items you carry from theft, damage, or if they go missing in transit – which does happen and can cost companies a small fortune if they are valuable. It is not worth taking the risk.
