This is know as carriage of goods for hire and reward insurance.
It’s legally required if you are being paid for delivering goods that belong to someone else.
Multi drop courier insurance is designed to provide cover to self-employed van drivers and businesses.
It is different to haulage insurance which serves to protect van and lorry drivers who typically work single or double drop, long distance routes.
In contrast multi drop van courier insurance is geared more to drivers serving a local area with multiple deliveries.
It recognises the distinctive nature of your business. The frequent stops and starts, the relatively high mileage, the type of products you carry – it won’t cover hazardous goods or removal jobs.
If you want to know more about the differences between these three options, please visit our FAQs.
Through our panel of specialist insurers we are also able to offer no claims discounts of up to 65%.*
We also arrange goods in transit insurance for couriers. Whilst this is not legally required, it is recommended because it will cover you against the loss of, or damage to, goods whilst they are being transported.
You can check it out on our Delivery Rider Insurance page.
* Underwriting terms and conditions and availability of cover will vary between insurers. Please ask for details of the insurers we use to compare van insurance quotes.
