1. Why Get It?
If you own and use multiple vehicles for business purposes, it’s highly likely that this is the type of policy for you. Insuring your fleet as a whole means that you spend less than you would if you sought cover for each vehicle individually. It’s also much simpler to manage, as there’ll be no questioning whether or not a particular truck or lorry’s cover is up to date - as you’ll renew the whole lot in one go! - plus, the time and effort you’ll save by only having to do one lot of paperwork will spare you an awful lot of stress and expenditure.
2. Are There Different Types?
Yes. You can get Third Party, which covers you in cases of damage or loss of other vehicles or injuries to third parties caused by your vehicles. It doesn’t cover your own vehicles, however. You can also get Third Party, Fire and Theft, which covers all of the above as well as damage to your own vehicles caused by fire and incidents of theft perpetrated against your fleet. Finally, there’s Fully Comprehensive cover, which covers everything already mentioned plus accidental damage to your fleet.
3.How Many Vehicles Can One Policy Cover?
There isn’t usually a limit, but this is something you must remember to ask your individual provider. There is usually a lower limit, which is commonly three - but some policies will go as low as two.
4. What Kinds of Vehicles Can I Insure?
Vehicle fleet insurance can cover virtually any kind of motorised vehicle, from courier scooters to taxis and from tractors to articulated lorries. However, if the business vehicles you use are particularly rare or valuable - classic “wedding” cars for example - you may need to seek out a specialist insurer to meet all your requirements.
5. What Costs Are Involved?
This depends on your insurer and their specialisms, but also the type of business you run, the performance of your policy over time, the number of vehicles in your fleet and their individual security capabilities and your drivers’ individual histories. You can keep your costs down by making sure that each vehicle is as secure as possible, and by shopping around for a policy that covers exactly what you need without any unnecessary extras - for example, searching for a policy specialising in agricultural vehicle insurance means that you’ll skip any of the add-ons you might receive if you ran a taxi firm.
