Fleet insurance provides cover for all your commercial motors under one easy to manage policy. This type of cover is flexible and can be used to insure 2 or more vehicles. A mix of vehicles can be included for example cars, vans and lorries.
Levels of cover available
Also termed "fully comp" this is the highest level of cover and includes the following:
Third Party Fire & Theft
Third party is the legal minimum with fire and theft being an added optional. This may be a cost effective approach for large commercial fleets that can make it cost effective to partly self insure. This level of cover is less expensive, but that is reflected in the level of cover provided.
Third Party Only
Typical exclusions in a fleet policy

Reducing fleet insurance cost
The cost of your insurance cost will depend on a number of factors. For some of these you can take steps to reduce the overall cost. We have highlighted some of these in the section below.
Remove unnecessary extras
Always check what is included in your fleet insurance policy. Remove any cover that your business does not need. At the same time you need to be careful that you don't omit cover that is required.
Pay annually rather than monthly installments
In most cases it will be slightly cheaper to pay for your premium in one lump sum. Paying in weekly or monthly payments will normally work out more expensive.
Monitor your claims history
This is kept by your broker and is a record of all claims made by your company against your fleet insurance policy. Request a copy from your broker and analyse for trends. Example a particular type of accident or multiple claims by one driver. Take action by providing your employees with additional training.
Secure your Vehicles
Can you improve security by providing overnight secured parking. If not secure parking can you add additional lighting to deter theft. Speak with your broker on other measures that they recommend to reduce vehicle theft or damage by vandalism.
Restrict you fleet to named drivers
If you can restrict your policy to named drivers this will reduce your premium. Any driver fleet policy is great for flexibility, but does come with additional costs. Drivers are an important factor in determining your premium costs, if possible also consider the following:
