Frequently Asked Questions About
 Courier Insurance

No, personal motor insurance usually does not cover commercial use. Couriers need commercial motor insurance to ensure coverage during business-related activities.
Commercial motor insurance covers damages to the courier's vehicle and provides liability coverage in case the courier is at fault in an accident. It may also include coverage for uninsured/underinsured motorists.
Cargo insurance protects against damage or loss of the goods being transported. It ensures that the courier is financially covered if the delivered items are damaged, stolen, or lost in transit.
Yes, there are various types, including All-Risk Cargo Insurance and Named Perils Cargo Insurance. All-Risk Cargo Insurance provides broader coverage, while Named Perils Cargo Insurance covers specific risks outlined in the policy.
Liability insurance covers bodily injury or property damage that couriers may cause to third parties during the delivery process. It is essential for protecting the courier from legal and financial repercussions.
Yes, liability insurance often covers legal defence costs, including legal fees and court expenses, in case the courier is sued for damages.
One solution that our brokers will use to save couriers on insurance costs is bundling coverage, maintaining a good driving record, implementing safety measures, and comparing quotes from different insurers.
Yes, we offer a tailored service so that couriers can often discuss changes to their insurance policies based on their specific needs. This may include adjusting coverage limits, adding endorsements, or combining different types of coverage.
While cargo insurance provides coverage for a range of risks, it may have exclusions or limitations. It's essential to carefully review the policy to understand the specific circumstances under which goods are covered.
Using a personal vehicle for commercial purposes without the appropriate insurance will lead to coverage gaps. In the event of an accident, your personal motor insurer will not deal with the claim, leaving you personally responsible for damages.
Standard insurance policies typically do not cover delays in deliveries. However, some specialised policies or endorsements may offer coverage for business interruption or loss of income due to unforeseen delays.
Depending on the policy, coverage may extend to accidents that happen while delivering on foot or using a bicycle. Couriers should check with their insurance provider to confirm the extent of coverage in such scenarios.
