Insurance for courier use

Its important for you and your customers to get the right insurance. Their is two that you need and one optional one and these are:

Courier Insurance - Vehicle Insurance

This insurance is a must have to be able to use a vehicle on the road and is a legal requirement. When contacting the insurance company you must state that it is for courier use. A common mistake is to say its for business use which is not the case. The reason for this is that you will be carrying goods for other people for profit and the insurance company must know this for your quote.

Goods in Transit - GiT

This insurance is a must have as well. It's usually pretty cheap and is not worth scraping a few pound for a lower premium. This protects you in case you damage your customers goods and generally cover goes up to £10,000 but this can be arranged to be higher if you are carrying more expensive packages. your insurance company might cover this as well or you can go to a specialist company.

Public Liability

Don't quote me on this but I think this is an optional insurance you can take out. It covers you for things like dropping a heavy box on a clients foot for example. But that doesn't mean you can do it on purpose!!

With the top two insurances in place you are ready to go but how do I get the jobs you may be asking.
