Does my business need fleet insurance?

alt

It’s a legal requirement to have a minimum of third party car insurance in place to drive in the UK – but businesses have an extra responsibility to their staff and customers to make sure they’re protected against any additional risks they may encounter on the road.

Your business may also require a more flexible motor policy than standard car insurance will usually allow, as you may need to update your driver and/or vehicle details on a regular basis – and this can become even more complicated when you have a large number of vehicles to keep track of.

You may also use your vehicles for a range of purposes, such as social use, business use and carriage of goods or passengers for hire and reward – all of which will need to be factored into your cover.
