How much does Courier Van Insurance cost?
Take a look at our real quotes below to get a rough idea of what you could pay for your courier van insurance.
With a huge surge in the number of people spending rather large sums of money on internet shopping, it’s little surprise to us that the number of courier van drivers has also risen. Whether you want to buy a 50” LED TV online or just a pair of shoes, courier van drivers are the ones who’ll deliver them to you – which is why we try to provide them with the best value courier van insurance that we can.
Courier insurance is often a little bit higher than normal van insurance, which is largely due to the fact that couriers often transport high-value goods, which makes them more susceptible to theft. There are, however, a few things that you can do to reduce the cost of your premium.
One of the most important factors that insurers will take into account is security, so you need to make sure that you have a number of security measures in place, such as an alarm and immobiliser, or steering wheel lock.
Keeping goods out of sight of windows and doors is also important, as is removing any items of value from the van overnight. Putting a sign onto the van that explains that no goods are left in the vehicle overnight acts as a good deterrent, although the best option would be to lock the van away in a secure garage overnight if at all possible.
If not, keeping it on a private driveway is far preferable to keeping it on a public road.
If you do limited mileage in your courier van – perhaps if you use it only for deliveries and have another car that you use for everything else – you could also qualify for a limited mileage discount.
For example, if your annual mileage is 5,000, you could get a discount provided that your mileage stays underneath that limit. If you go over that limit, you’ll need to let your insurer know as this will invalidate your policy.
