FAQ’s

Some of our most asked questions, answered below:

HGV Medical: What is Involved & When Is It Due?

At Anthony Jones we have created an online resource to answer your questions at your convenience. Simply browse a category to find FAQs relating to that section.

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.

What can I use my van for with temporary van insurance?

With temporary van insurance, it will depend on the usage you select, but as standard, you will be covered for social, domestic and pleasure use. This includes to and from various places of work and for the carriage of your own goods in connection with your business. Please be aware there is no cover for any goods carried in or on the vehicle, so you'll need a separate policy to cover those goods.

What types of work can I use my van for with a temporary van insurance policy?

There are some types of work that are allowed and some that are not.

Types of work that are generally permitted:

  • Tradesman/Tradeswoman
  • Office worker
  • Dog walker

Types of work that are not permitted:

  • Taxi use or commercial travelling of any kind
  • Hire & Reward
  • Use in connection with the motor trade
  • Use to carry hazardous or dangerous goods

Shuaib Rahman has been extremely helpful in getting our warehouse a suitable insurance coverage. Out of various brokers we contacted, he was the fastest to respond, most frequent and regular follow-ups with emails and calls, and in the end got us the best quote. I would highly recommend his service.

I have been a client of Anthony Jones for over 10 years as the broker for the buildings & associated insurances for our freehold property of 3 flats. For the last 6 years I have dealt with Tom Cowap who is always highly efficient, professional and easy to deal with. He really went above and beyond this year when he found the existing policy had stopped covering flood risk and that the alternatives offered a significant increase in premium on the previous year. He didn't involve me until he'd found policies which offered the right cover, but with a reasonable premium and it was genuinely surprising that he didn't try to sell me the more expensive option. I can't imagine wanting to move to a different broker in future because of this great service. Thanks Tom!

I wrote the following two years ago. Since then, I have continued to receive great service from the team at Anthony Jones - they are courteous & very effective, a pretty good combination for an insurance broker!"I chair a campaign to save our local pub. We launched a share sale and succeeded in buying the Crown a few days ago, so we needed help in selecting the right insurance for the site whilst renovations were under way, including unoccupied property cover. Tony Ellis of Anthony Jones Insurance was really helpful in guiding us through this process, and we now have the correct cover in place. Fast, easy to deal with & knowledgeable - just what you need from your insurance broker! Well done Tony and all at A Jones."
