Summary

 

 

Now is a great time to be a courier. Customers are eager to have everything delivered quickly, from gourmet food to bargain clothes and books. Traditional couriers are busy too – especially in big cities – transporting confidential documents that need signatures. Email has not brought about the demise of that business, and online shoppers and subscription services have generated huge demand for deliveries seven days a week.

 

Getting the right level of insurance cover means your business and your vehicles are fully protected. It doesn’t have to be expensive. Whether you are a self-employed individual with a single van or have a team of drivers and a fleet of vehicles on the road, you need to ensure the basics are covered.

 

In this Guide, we explored the options depending on whether you are self-employed or employed as a courier, on payroll. If you are employed as a courier, then normally you would not need to worry about getting courier insurance, since this is something your employer would get for all of their staff. There are various levels of insurance you can get, which includes:

 

  • Cover for the vehicle. By law, every driver needs this, whether or not a car or van is used for courier work. Options range from third party through to comprehensive, with most couriers and courier companies opting for comprehensive.
  • Insurance for the driver. Companies with staff on payroll need Employers’ Liability. Whereas, self-employed drivers would be wise to consider public liability, to ensure they are protected in the event of an unexpected accident with a member of the public.
  • Goods in Transit. You are entrusted to deliver the goods you have collected for a client. What happens if something goes wrong? Accidents, damages, even theft can happen. Make sure your liability is reduced with Goods in Transit insurance.
  • Fleet. If you have five or more vehicles – cars, vans or motorbikes – operating as courier vehicles, then you can save money and time spent managing individual policies with fleet courier insurance.
  • Breakdown. Get back on the road quickly in the event of a breakdown, with roadside assistance and recovery support.
