Do you use motor vehicles for your business or do your employees drive company vehicles? 

If the answer is yes it is your responsibility to purchase motor insurance for your entire fleet whether its vans or cars.

 

Do we need Commercial Motor Insurance?

Commercial motor insurance or business vehicle insurance is a legal requirement in the UK. Your vehicles are a crucial part of your job and a standard personal vehicle insurance does not cover you for work. If an employee uses their own vehicle for work you are not obliged to pay their motor insurance but you are required by law to ensure they have the minimum cover. They must disclose to their insurance company that they are using their personal vehicle for business.

 

Cover at a glance

There are 3 main types of cover

Third party. This is the minimum cover you can have required by law. It covers you against costs that arise as a result of injuries to other people and damage to their vehicle.

Third party fire and theft. Covers the same as third party but also includes added protection if the vehicle is stolen or destroyed by fire.

Comprehensive. This protects you against all of the above and loss of or damage to, your own vehicle.

Optional extras can include;

  • 24 hour claim and accident helpline
  • Any driver cover
  • International cover
  • Replacement courtesy car or van
  • Excess protection
