If you’re involved in the carrying of cargo – whether that’s as a courier, haulier, a removal company or are simply transporting your own products around – then goods in transit insurance (also known as GiT cover) can help protect you when on the move.
A goods in transit policy could be the difference between your business flourishing or closing.
Birkdale Insurance Group can supply you with Goods in Transit insurance at a surprisingly affordable cost, whether this is a separate policy or part of your courier or HGV vehicle insurance as an add on.
Annual policies start as low as £91 per year, depending on the type and value of goods you are insuring.
If deliveries are your business – be it as a courier or a haulier – you’ll find many customers will expect you to have sufficient GiT insurance in place before they will work with you.
Having it gives them the reassurance that while their loads are out of their sight, they are protected from financial loss.
If you transport goods in your vehicles of any kind then this protection can help you. The range of items that can be covered is large and includes:
- Owned items – such as customer deliveries
- Other’s goods
- Sensitive documents
- Potentially dangerous goods, such as hazardous waste
Particularly well suited to the courier and haulage industries, without cover you might find yourself struggling to get contracts from large companies or companies that ship expensive or fragile items.
Equally if you don’t have it and something goes wrong, the costs can be crippling.
