What Is Fleet Van Insurance?
Van fleet insurance is an insurance policy that covers multiple vans under one policy. A policy combines all aspects of risk into one single document often saving you money in the process.
Fleet insurance policies are not trade specific. Whether you are a builder with a variety of vans or a courier needing to cover a selection of vehicles, then fleet van insurance is right for you!
Fleet van insurance is often referred to as multiple van insurance.
What Levels of Cover are there for my Vans?
As with private car insurance, fleet van polices are also available in three base policy types:
Third Party Only
This type of policy covers any liability that you might incur to others. It will not cover your drivers or your vehicles though. It is the most basic level of cover and not recommended.
Third Party Fire and Theft
TPFT policies cover the same as the above. They will also cover your own vehicles against fire and theft. This type of policy will still only cover the third party though in the event of a fault claim.
A fully Comprehensive policy is the highest level of insurance available for a fleet of vans. It includes all the cover above but will also cover you in the event of a fault claim.
Although this is the most expensive level of cover. It does ensure you have little to worry about as a fleet operator. Operating a fleet of vans carries a lot of risk and therefore a sensible level of insurance is suggested.
