Time is money. When delivery drivers don’t drive, they don’t earn. It’s only hours on the road that generate an income. All professional drivers know the business has troughs and peaks. There are moments when the going’s good and times when the orders are slow, or their vehicle is off the road for repairs. These issues cannot be helped, but what drivers don’t need are delays in getting their insurance. Food delivery drivers cannot operate without cover. Getting top quality Food Delivery insurance without losing working time is essential. Searching for a speedy answer means many drivers ask, ‘How fast can I get Food Delivery insurance?’ Here’s the inside scoop:

Get your ducks in a row

The more prepared you are, the sooner you get your policy. Have the basic information ready:

  • Personal details, including driving licence number
  • Vehicle details, including mileage and VIN number
  • List of any claims in the past three years – your fault or not
  • Any penalty points on your licence?
  • Work details, including where you work and annual miles you expect to drive
  • Who do you work with?

It will also speed the process if you know what kind of policy you need. Do you want flexible hourly, 30 days, or annual cover? Buying by the year is most cost-effective, but short-term policies can be best for you if you only work part-time, or during peak seasonal periods like the Christmas holidays.

Lastly, do you want Third Party or Fully Comprehensive protection. (Unsure? Please ask us for help).
