Courier Insurance

Courier Insurance is a specialised insurance product to cover you for your van and the delivery of your cargo against the unique risks that couriers face. This requires a specialist broker and here at Drayton, Matt James is that specialist.

By working with a panel of courier insurance companies to negotiate on your behalf, whether you are a new venture or an established courier, Matt can source you the best policies with correct cover for your individual needs, including:

  • Individual Courier Vehicles;
  • Courier Vehicle Fleets;
  • Specified Driver Basis;
  • Any Driver Basis;
  • Goods in Transit cover;
  • Employers and/or Public Liability;
  • Flexible Payment Plans

Matt also works with local vehicle rental companies so can assist in sourcing vehicles, cameras and trackers as required for your growing business.

We also know that you can't afford to be off the road long if your van is damaged, lost or stolen so we work with you to get your business back on the road as soon as possible, including working with claims management companies to minimise the impact.

We work with a panel of specialist insurers so we can offer expert advice and service ensuring that your business is well protected, so to discuss whether you have the right cover in place, call 01603 957015, send an email or pop in and see us.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • I have car/van insurance already - Do I need courier insurance?

Courier insurance is different to normal car & van insurance as you are carrying goods for "Hire and Reward" and requires a specialist policy to cover this. In fact, if you have not correctly sourced a courier insurance policy and have a normal car or van insurance policy, you will find that it is invalid when you need it the most, should a claim incident occur.

  • I work for Amazon/DPD/Yodel and use my own vehicle, can you help?

Yes, many courier drivers use their own vehicles for their courier activities, working for local depots, and we can help you source the right policy to meet their requirements.

  • This would be my first courier policy, is that a problem?

No, we have specific insurer agreements set up to quote on new ventures, whether as single vehicles or a fleet policy.

  • Will a Courier van policy provide cover for the parcels I'm carrying?

No, you would need to have a Goods In Transit policy, which is a product that we can also advise on or arrange a policy.
