Our guide on how to build a courier van insurance policy that suits you.
When you work as a courier van driver, choosing the right insurance policy can help you get the cover you need to feel safe at work at a price that suits you. But when it comes to purchasing your insurance, there’s a lot to think about before you buy.
In this post, we’ll take a look at some of the most important parts of your courier van insurance policy, so you can get a few ideas about some of the most important aspects to consider. We’ll also show you how you can get started with your quote for courier van insurance with Zego in less than a minute.
Select your policy length
At Zego, we offer all courier van drivers the choice of a 30-day or annual policy. That way, you can get cover that lasts for as long as you need it. Our 30-day policies offer you short-term protection without any long-term commitment, whereas our annual cover is a cost-effective choice for full-time van couriers.
When you choose a 30-day policy, you can also set up a monthly subscription, so your next policy starts automatically when your current one finishes until you no longer need your cover.
Choose your level of cover
Your level of cover is one of the most important parts of your insurance policy. It determines how much protection you have in the event of an incident where you are found at fault. At Zego, we offer you the choice between Fully Comprehensive, Third Party, Fire & Theft and Third Party Only policies, so you can get as much cover as you need to feel safe.
Although a Fully Comprehensive policy will cost more than a Third Party option, you’ll have a greater level of protection, as you’re also covered for any damage done to you or your vehicle when a claim is made on your policy. Different levels of cover work for different people, so it’s always worth thinking about which one is right for you.
Customise your policy with optional extras
At Zego, we offer a range of optional extras for you to choose from so that you can get cover for what matters to you. Our additional cover options for courier van drivers include:
Goods in Transit insurance: Protect the items you're carrying as part of your work from £56 per year or £16.80 per 30 days.
Breakdown Cover: Get combined Roadside, Recovery and Home cover to protect your vehicle (£40 a year or £8 for 30 days).
No Claims Discount Protection: Protect yourself for up to 5 years NCD earned for up to 1 fault claim (+7% on the price of your premium).
