Commercial Fleet insurance is designed to cater for businesses who will naturally have a variety of vehicle classes such as cars, vans, minibuses, trucks, HGVs or “Special Types”.
Typically fleet insurance is aimed at businesses with 3 or more vehicles.
Breakdown cover is not normally included as standard but there can be the option to included this if required.
Fleet insurance is a type of commercial insurance that covers a group of vehicles owned by a single business. Fleet insurance can provide coverage for a variety of risks, including accidents, theft, and damage to third-party property.
Fleet insurance allows for a business to have a single policy and renewal date for all of their vehicles. The policies themselves are often not dissimilar to the car or van insurance you are probably accustomed to, but they are much more straightforward to administer.
Fleet insurance offers the most benefit to those who have 5 or more vehicles. Some insurers will offer fleet insurance from 2 or more vehicles, but there are few who do and you will often find that it can be cheaper to insure less than 5 vehicles individually.
Fleet insurance is usually on an 'any driver' basis. However, there are usually conditions to this. These could include:
- Drivers needing to have held their licence for a certain period of time, such as 12-24 months.
- Drivers over a certain age (fleet insurance is usual on an any driver over 21/25/30 basis).
- Drivers being required to report any motoring offences or prior bans prior to being allowed to drive.
If you're ever unsure about the conditions that apply to your own policy, we would always recommend speaking to a professional insurance broker to ensure that you are covered correctly.
Yes, fleet insurance typically covers personal use of the vehicles in the fleet, as long as the driver is authorised by the policyholder to do so. However, employees cannot usually insure their own personal vehicles on a company fleet, with the exception of directors.
The cost of fleet insurance is calculated based on a number of factors, including the type of vehicles in the fleet, the age of the vehicles, the driving history of the employees, the level of coverage desired, the business activities and the business's claims history.
Fleet insurance is typically on a comprehensive basis and will include cover for:
- Accidents: This includes damage to your car caused by another driver, even if you are not at fault.
- Theft: This includes damage to your car if it is stolen.
- Fire: This includes damage to your car if it is destroyed by fire.
- Flood: This includes damage to your car if it is damaged by flood water.
- Vandalism: This includes damage to your car if it is damaged by someone who is not the owner.
- Natural disasters: This includes damage to your car caused by natural disasters, such as earthquakes, hurricanes, and tornadoes.
- Accidental damage: This includes damage to your car caused by events that are not covered by other types of insurance, such as hitting an animal or falling into a pothole. Comprehensive car insurance is not required by law in the UK, but it is a good idea to have it. It can protect you from financial loss if your car is damaged or stolen.
Of course! One of the benefits of insuring on a fleet basis is that you can make as many changes as you like throughout the policy. These might be on an as and when basis or via periodic declarations to the insurer (such as once a quarter or once every six months).
Absolutely. We would always look to arrange an insurance solution personal to you. Whether this is on a comprehensive, third-party, fire and theft or third-party only basis. We can look to include breakdown and ensure that your policy allows for the driving of all current and future planned employees.
Yes, your policy will usually allow for the addition of hired, leased or loaned vehicles as standard, presuming they are being used in line with your standard business activities.
