Delivery insurance: 5 things to think about before you buy
Written by Benedict Harrison
When you’re looking to purchase Delivery insurance, there’s a lot to think about before you take out a policy. To help you make your decision, we’ve put together a list of 5 things to consider before you buy.
The first thing that people tend to consider when looking to purchase insurance is how much it’s going to cost. Nobody wants to pay more than they have to. If two companies are offering the same cover for different prices, why pay more?
However, there are lots of other things to consider beyond the price of the policy. Simply picking the cheapest option may not always mean you get the cover you need or want.
To help you get an idea of your estimated price as quickly as possible, we’ve designed this simple tool.
2. Level of cover
Before you take out an insurance policy, it’s important to understand the level of cover that you will have. Fully Comprehensive cover offers the most protection, but it will cost more. Although Third Party Only cover will work out cheaper, you will not be covered if anyone steals your vehicle.
Zego’s Scooter insurance offers you the choice between Fully Comprehensive, Third Party, Fire & Theft and Third Party Only cover, so you can get the amount of protection you need.
Our Car delivery insurance offers you Fully Comprehensive cover, subject to you having the same level of cover in place for your underlying Social, Domestic & Pleasure insurance.
3. How many hours do you plan to work?
The number of hours you plan to work is a good indication of what type of policy is right for you. Zego’s pay-as-you-go insurance is designed specifically for part-time workers, so if you’re planning on working up to 25 hours per week, you could save money with this type of cover.
If you’re planning on working 25 hours or more per week, you may wish to consider a 30-day or annual insurance policy. These options can be more cost-effective for full-time delivery workers.
4. Company reviews
Can you trust the company you’re looking at taking out your policy with? What have other customers said about them?
You want to be sure that you can trust the company that you’re taking out your policy with. If lots of people have had a bad experience with an insurance company, then there’s a risk that you will too. It’s always a good idea to check review sites, like Trustpilot or the company’s reviews on Google before you purchase your policy.
5. What if my details change?
If your details are likely to change during the course of your policy, make sure to check whether a company charges admin fees. How much will they charge you if you change your vehicle? What about if you move to a different address?
At Zego, we don’t charge any admin fees for changing your details, but some companies will. So how much it will cost to change things on your policy is an important detail.
Zego offers Delivery insurance for scooter riders and car drivers working across the UK. Our policies are available by the hour, for 30 days or for a full year so you can get cover that lasts as long as you need it.
