Fleet Insurance FAQs

How much does Fleet Insurance cost and how can I lower my premiums?

The cost of  your Business Motor Fleet Insurance is entirely dependent on the type of business you run, how many vehicles you have and driver’s individual driving history. However, there are two main factors that can increase the cost of your policy. These are:

Accident frequency

Whilst some accidents can’t be avoided, there are ways to reduce the risk of them happening.

  • Vetting of drivers – It’s important to do a full background check of your drivers as routine before hiring them. You can do this by getting a copy of the driver’s license from the DVLA to ensure that the license produced has not been tampered with and that the information contained on it is up to date and correct. You should also contact the driver’s previous insurer to check their accident history on both a business and private policy.
  • Driver training and awareness – It is important to send your drivers on training days regularly so they are aware of the dangers of driving and general safety on the roads.

A cost breakdown of a Car Fleet Insurance Claim

It is important to report any accidents to your insurer as soon as possible, no matter how small or insignificant they seem. The longer the delay, the greater the potential cost . Costs can start mounting from the day of the accident and only by reporting the incident to your insurer immediately can they take control of the claim and potential costs can be avoided.

A typical example would be that one of your drivers hit another vehicle in the rear. They fail to report the accident until they receive a letter holding them responsible. They thought the incident was so small as to not be bothered. The accident is reported to the insurer 30 days after the event, only as a result of the driver receiving a letter from solicitors acting for the other party.

So what impact has this delay had on the cost to your insurer*?

  • Thirty day hire charges at £45.00 per day + VAT = £1586.25
  • Storage charges at £15.00 per day + VAT = £528.78
  • Total £2,115.03

Should the vehicle repair costs of say £1,000, be recovered by solicitors acting for the third party, they will receive an additional 20% on their costs based on the value of the amount recovered. This could be avoided, by payment being made direct to the third party by your insurer, something they can’t do if they are not aware of the accident.

The typical cost for a simple accident as described above would be as follows:

  • Vehicle Repair Cost £1,000.00
  • Vehicle Hire & Storage as above £2,115.03
  • NHS Charges £452.00
  • Medical Report £400.00
  • General Damages (whiplash injury) £1,500.00
  • Solicitors Costs £2,024.52
  • Total £7,491.55

Were all matters reported to insurers immediately, the impact on this cost would be as follows:

  • Vehicle repair cost £1,000.00
  • Paid direct to TP or TP insurer without need for Solicitors.
  • Vehicle hire & storage as above £ nil
  • Free vehicle provided £452.00
  • Medical report £400.00
  • General damages (whiplash injury) £1,500.00
  • Solicitors costs £1,292.50
  • Total £4,644.50

The total achieved by the insurer as a result of being advised of the accident on the day of the loss as opposed to 30 days late is:

  • A saving of £2,827.05 or 37%

If this were to happen multiple times a year on our company’s policy, the costs would soon mount up.

Working in partnership with your broker and insurer can make a significant impact on the cost of your Fleet Car Insurance.

I have 5 vehicles but they are mine not my company’s can I get a Fleet Insurance policy?

Vehicles must be registered in the name of the company or a partner or director of the company. This means that even if the vehicles are in your name but are used for business activities you will be able to insure them all under a Fleet Insurance policy.

If they are for domestic and social use then you will need a different policy. You will also not be able to insure the vehicles belonging to employees under this policy.

Call our team of experts now on 0333 003 0043 to discuss your options further.

What will a Fleet Insurance cover me to use my vehicles for?

Plan Insurance Brokers can arrange cover for a variety of different uses including:

  • couriers
  • private hire
  • haulage
  • social domestic and pleasure (only if in addition to a primary business activity)
  • and other business transportation.

 

If you are unsure about what type of activities are covered under a Business Motor Fleet Insurance Policy or would like a range of bespoke quotes for your company, call our team on 0333 003 0043 to discuss your options with our experts.

What vehicles can I get cover for on a Fleet Insurance policy?

With Plan Insurance Brokers you can be covered for a wide range of vehicles such as:

  • articulated lorries
  • busses
  • cars,
  • coaches,
  • curtain-side vans,
  • flatbed trucks,
  • tail lift trucks,
  • tippers,
  • vans,
  • agricultural vehicles.

If you can drive it legally on the road then we can insure it . We can insure non road worthy commercial vehicles as well such as fork lifts.

If you have specialist vehicles in need of a policy then don’t hesitate to contact our Commercial Vehicle Insurance Broker specialists to get the right policy for your company.

Will I get a no claims bonus on a Fleet Insurance policy?

No, you will not get a no claims bonus (NCB) however you will receive a confirmed fleet claims experience report. A good fleet claims experience report will guarantee that you get the best policy premiums much like a NCB. Calculating the cost of a fleet insurance policy is more complex as it is dependant on various factors such as the area you’re based in, the type of vehicles you have and how well your policy has performed over a number of years.

What are the consequences if I decide to move away from a Fleet Insurance policy?

Most private car insurers will honour a NCB for 2 to 3 so if you change back from a Fleet Car Insurance policy within that time your NCB will still be valid (as long as you are still claim free).

Can I have a combination of Insurance covers like third party only (TPO) and comprehensive on a Fleet Insurance policy?

Yes. You can specify which vehicles you want to have on different levels of cover as well as who can drive them and for what they are used for.

  • How much does Fleet Insurance cost and how can I lower my premiums?

    How much does Fleet Insurance cost and how can I lower my premiums?

    The cost of  your Business Motor Fleet Insurance is entirely dependent on the type of business you run, how many vehicles you have and driver’s individual driving history. However, there are two main factors that can increase the cost of your policy. These are:

    Accident frequency

    Whilst some accidents can’t be avoided, there are ways to reduce the risk of them happening.

    • Vetting of drivers – It’s important to do a full background check of your drivers as routine before hiring them. You can do this by getting a copy of the driver’s license from the DVLA to ensure that the license produced has not been tampered with and that the information contained on it is up to date and correct. You should also contact the driver’s previous insurer to check their accident history on both a business and private policy.
    • Driver training and awareness – It is important to send your drivers on training days regularly so they are aware of the dangers of driving and general safety on the roads.

    It is important to report any accidents to your insurer as soon as possible, no matter how small or insignificant they seem. The longer the delay, the greater the potential cost . Costs can start mounting from the day of the accident and only by reporting the incident to your insurer immediately can they take control of the claim and potential costs can be avoided.

    A typical example would be that one of your drivers hit another vehicle in the rear. They fail to report the accident until they receive a letter holding them responsible. They thought the incident was so small as to not be bothered. The accident is reported to the insurer 30 days after the event, only as a result of the driver receiving a letter from solicitors acting for the other party.

    So what impact has this delay had on the cost to your insurer*?

    • Thirty day hire charges at £45.00 per day + VAT = £1586.25
    • Storage charges at £15.00 per day + VAT = £528.78
    • Total £2,115.03

    Should the vehicle repair costs of say £1,000, be recovered by solicitors acting for the third party, they will receive an additional 20% on their costs based on the value of the amount recovered. This could be avoided, by payment being made direct to the third party by your insurer, something they can’t do if they are not aware of the accident.

    The typical cost for a simple accident as described above would be as follows:

    • Vehicle Repair Cost £1,000.00
    • Vehicle Hire & Storage as above £2,115.03
    • NHS Charges £452.00
    • Medical Report £400.00
    • General Damages (whiplash injury) £1,500.00
    • Solicitors Costs £2,024.52
    • Total £7,491.55

    Were all matters reported to insurers immediately, the impact on this cost would be as follows:

    • Vehicle repair cost £1,000.00
    • Paid direct to TP or TP insurer without need for Solicitors.
    • Vehicle hire & storage as above £ nil
    • Free vehicle provided £452.00
    • Medical report £400.00
    • General damages (whiplash injury) £1,500.00
    • Solicitors costs £1,292.50
    • Total £4,644.50

    The total achieved by the insurer as a result of being advised of the accident on the day of the loss as opposed to 30 days late is:

    • A saving of £2,827.05 or 37%

    If this were to happen multiple times a year on our company’s policy, the costs would soon mount up.

    Working in partnership with your broker and insurer can make a significant impact on the cost of your Fleet Car Insurance.

    I have 5 vehicles but they are mine not my company’s can I get a Fleet Insurance policy?

    Vehicles must be registered in the name of the company or a partner or director of the company. This means that even if the vehicles are in your name but are used for business activities you will be able to insure them all under a Fleet Insurance policy.

    If they are for domestic and social use then you will need a different policy. You will also not be able to insure the vehicles belonging to employees under this policy.
