Van Insurance with Hire and Reward

Here at Insurance Revolution, we have fantastic relationships with some of the UK’s leading insurers. We strive to deliver competitive, affordable quotes to our clients looking for courier van insurance with hire and reward.

What is hire and reward insurance?

If you use your van to carry or deliver other people’s goods for money, you need hire and reward insurance as part of your courier van insurance. Hire and reward insurance is vital for a variety of different professions, including couriers, removal companies, drivers and taxi drivers. It’s important to have insurance so that you’re covered in the event that the goods you are transporting get damaged or stolen. Without having the right courier van insurance policy in place, it could potentially cost thousands of pounds to replace them. It’s also a legal requirement, so it’s vital to get the right policy for you.

What does insurance with hire and reward cover you for?

If you have hire and reward insurance, you’ll be covered for any loss and/or damages to the goods you are delivering. Instances that hire and reward insurance covers you for include:

  • Being  involved in a road accident
  • Having your vehicle stolen
  • Having your vehicle broken into
  • Personal injuries

Having the right hire and reward cover in place means that you’ll be covered for any legal costs, damage to your vehicle, replacement stock and/or vehicle and any compensation sought for personal injury claims.

What can affect the cost of your insurance premium?

Hire and reward insurance is known for being more expensive than your courier van insurance policy. This is because you are not only insuring your own vehicle, but the belongings of others as well.
Factors that can affect the price of your hire and reward insurance premium include:

  • The type of goods you are transporting: the more valuable the goods, the higher your premiums. So, for example, if you are transporting some antique furniture for a customer, your premiums will be higher than if you were transporting stationery.
  • How much driving experience you have: if you’re 21 and have recently passed your driving test, you will be considered a higher risk than a 50 year old with decades of experience.
  • Your vehicle size: The larger your vehicle, the more expensive your insurance policy will be.
  • Your mileage: the more miles you do on the road, the greater the risk. For example, if you often drive in poor weather conditions or at night, this will affect your insurance premiums.

Does van courier insurance cover self employed drivers?

Yes of course, if you are a self employed courier driver doing deliveries for Hermes, Amazon or any other courier company then we can help you be insured correctly. It can be rewarding being self employed and working to your own schedule but you do need to get the correct insurance, and our knowledgeable staff are here to help you. 

Does van courier insurance cover any sort of van?

We can cover many different types of van for courier use. Although if your vehicle is over 3.5 tonnes in weight it would be classed as a HGV, but we do also offer HGV insurance. We would be able to cover most vans for courier use, so whatever type of vehicle you may own, please get in touch with us and we will be happy to help and get you covered correctly.
