Car, van and any wheel based insurance is all about risk - the more time your vehicles spend on the road, the greater the risk.
Commercial fleet insurance is designed to cover multiple business vehicles against damage and theft, so if you’re looking to insure your fleet it’s important to get the right cover at a fair price.
Whether you’ve a few cars or a fleet of vans, business fleet insurance is effectively a way to buy insurance in bulk from one provider instead of having multiple policies from different insurers running concurrently.
The main advantage of taking out this type of cover is that it can take away the hassle of having to renew each vehicle's policy individually - and it may work out to be the more cost-effective option. A fleet insurance policy also gives you the opportunity to insure all of your drivers in any of your vehicles, meaning individuals don’t have to wait for a specific vehicle to be returned.
Just like private motorists, fleet operators have the option of taking out third party, third party fire and theft or comprehensive fleet insurance. Each of these policies can provide cover for different circumstances:

It’s worth remembering not all policies are identical, and it’s important that you don’t just pick the cheapest, but also make sure your cover offers everything you need in terms of protection. You can often include features in a fleet insurance policy that are not usually included in private motorists' policies. For example:
There are also a number of situations commonly excluded from fleet insurance cover, including:
It’s important that you make sure to read your policy documents carefully to ensure you are compliant with its terms and all of the details are correct. If you fail to do this, your policy could be deemed invalid – leaving your business vulnerable if an unexpected incident should occur.
