When would I need Commercial Vehicle insurance rather than Car insurance?
If you have a company and have vehicles that you use within the business, then you need Commercial Vehicle insurance. The vehicles you own might include those which are obviously commercial vehicles, such as lorries, vans and forklift trucks. But company cars are also classed as commercial vehicles and should be covered by Commercial Vehicle insurance. Private car insurance will not include cover for company-owned cars.
When would I need Fleet insurance rather than Multi-Car insurance?
Multi-Car insurance can be used to cover a number of privately-owned cars used for personal use, perhaps incorporating a bit of business use, such as commuting, too. However, Multi-Car insurance can’t be used to cover company cars. For this, you’ll need Fleet insurance. If you want to insure fewer than 5 or 6 company cars or other commercial vehicles, you can protect them with a Mini-Fleet insurance policy.
What is Goods in Transit insurance?
Goods in Transit insurance (GIT insurance for short) is also often referred to as Cargo insurance. As the name suggests, this insurance covers goods (which includes everything from food to furniture, building supplies to cars, and machinery parts to animals) which are being transported from one place to another. Goods in Transit insurance protects your goods in case they are damaged or lost while they are being transported by road, air, rail or sea.
