Getting fleet insurance for your vans
Fleet insurance is a term that will apply to the policies relating to the commercial vehicles owned by your business, so long as you own more than one. So whether you have two vans or two hundred, fleet insurance will be a necessary aspect in protecting the operational ability of your business.
Insuring your vans as a fleet, rather than van by van, not only will save you time, it will also save you money.
Most policies of this type will usually include courier insurance, as it is likely that any medium to large sized fleet will perform some level of couriering; however, if this is not integral to your needs, it is something that your insurer will be able to consider.
As a commercial vehicle specialist, iVan include legal expenses cover and tools cover as a complementary part of every policy - in the event of any mishap, these two protections can prove invaluable.
Of course, all companies experience falls and rises in business activity. Whether this is seasonal or because of other factors, it may mean that having pay-as-you go insurance for some of the vehicles in your fleet makes good economic sense. There is not much point having a van insured year-round if it spends 300 days a year under lock and key.
Generally, speaking the relative age and experience of the drivers that are going to be named in your fleet van insurance policy will be a factor in its cost. Typically, it will be more cost-effective if your drivers are over the age of 25 with at least two years of on-the-road experience. However, if your drivers fall under these age and experience limits, it should still be possible to negotiate a competitively priced policy.
Naturally, it is also important that your drivers possess good, if not completely clean, driving records. Appropriate licences for speciality vehicles are also a must.
