What is a courier?

A courier is an individual or company who is paid to deliver somebody else’s goods for an agreed price. Most couriers do multi-drop work and deliver general parcels and packages within a restricted radius; however, due to the nature of the business a courier may be asked to carry more unusual goods which need referring to their insurance broker.

Is Courier Insurance all I need to operate?

You will also need to make sure that you have the right cover for the goods inside your vehicle. This is called goods in transit insurance or GIT for short. Different levels of cover are available depending on the type and value of the goods that you intend to carry.

We offer cover ranging from one driver to any driver over 21, simply ask the question to find out the most cost effective way of insuring yourself.
