PLAN’S GUIDE TO HAULAGE & DISTRIBUTION INSURANCE
Below we have compiled some commonly asked questions that explain the key features of Haulage & Distribution Insurance, from essential elements of insurance to optional add-ons, to ensure that you and your business have the right cover.
If your business is specifically dedicated to transporting goods, then you will need a policy that covers ‘Goods for Hire and Reward’ usage to guarantee you are fully covered whilst on the road.
The benefits of one policy covering your business is:
- Complete flexibility – Any of your drivers are covered to drive your vehicles as and when required
- Less management – One policy covering all of your vehicles means less paperwork and only a single renewal date to remember
- Cost saving – Often, insuring a number of vehicles on a small fleet insurance policy can work out cheaper than having a range of policies
You need a Hire & Reward Drivers Insurance Policy by law if you are driving a vehicle that is carrying goods that are not your own as part of your job. It is worth considering the value and nature of goods held in your vehicle also consider goods in transit insurance.
