The Goods in Transit Insurance Specialists

Goods in Transit Insurance

Goods-in-transit insurance that's handled with care.

Goods in transit insurance is regarded by many as an essential for businesses in the delivery trades, as well as companies which distribute their own products.

That’s because it covers against the loss of, or damage to, goods whilst they are being transported.

In addition, many companies and local authorities contractually oblige their suppliers to have goods in transit insurance as a condition of trade.

Made for couriers & hauliers

Designed for both couriers and hauliers, the specialist goods in transit cover we can arrange and administer provides up to £50,000 cover for any one event, or up to £250,000 across up to 10 vehicles vehicles.

Protection also extends to property loss or damage when being handled by a sub-contractor.

In addition it will protect you against consequential losses of up to £50,000, including the failure to correctly deliver items.

This A-rated insurance includes European cover as standard to ensure your compliance with compulsory vehicle insurance requirements.

Up to £5,000,000 public liability insurance covers legal liabilities in relation to the death or bodily injury of a third party, or damage to their property, when caused by or in connection with your vehicle.

Up to £10,000,000 employers liability insurance – which is legally required if you employ full, part-time or temporary staff – is also included. This protects you for each and every claim an employee/s may make for a work-related illness or injury.

Very professional approach by Joe who took my call. I was concerned over an email I’d had inviting me to click on a link. He understood and we sorted everything out. Good people for customer service which is sadly lacking these days by other companies. Will use Principal again. Thanks
