If you have your own courier service business whether it is as a sole trader with just the one vehicle or you have a number of vehicles you will no doubt closely monitor how much you are paying for things to keep your business operating profitably especially in the current economic climate. These are challenging times as we are part way through another lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Hopefully, you will have been kept very busy leading up to Christmas but, unless you are very fortunate, the number of parcels you are currently delivering may well have reduced coming into the New Year.

Keeping your delivery vehicle on the road is obviously a priority as it is the workhorse that you cannot do without. You may well have monthly lease or business loan repayments to keep up with on the vehicle. Another major expenditure is going to be fuel costs. You will no doubt need to keep the vehicle in good working order so will hopefully ensure that it is regularly serviced.

Another expense that you cannot avoid is courier insurance as it is a legal requirement that you insure the vehicle unless it is declared SORN (Statutory Off Road Notification) and kept off the public road system. Unfortunately, too many people just automatically renew their motor insurance with the same provider year after year without bothering to see if he or she can get the cover cheaper with another insurance provider.

There are so many providers of courier insurance many of whom you can access via the Internet whether it be through a price comparison website or by going onto the insurer’s own website. This leads to increased competition so it may pay you to spend a little time checking to see if you can get the cover you require but at a lower cost with a different provider. If you can, you will be pleased to read that it is quick and simple to switch providers at the time you were due to renew your existing cover. In this respect, why not get in touch with us and we will do all that we can to help you obtain a competitive courier insurance quotation without any obligation.
