Have you tried Light Haulage as opposed to Courier Insurance. Think you'll find a major difference...and completely ligit

Try the comparision sites as some now list courier, and hire and reward.

I found coversure to be quite competitive, as much as the comparison sites say hire and reward the broker/insurers they search do not.... Be caerfull what you buy as if you think your covered and get stopped by the police and your not they can take your vehicle off you and give you 6 points on your licence...

yep tried light haulage but it only covers your for a set number of parcels per day, go over that limit and your uninsured.


had a look at the compare websites but they just want your details to ring you and try to sell you insurance for everything, had 4 today for home insurance.lol

I am sure this insurance debate will last for years. People have their own views on personal securities. For my peace of mind I will contact VOSA because we all know if we are involved in an accident insurance companies will find any tiny loophole to wriggle out of a payout.

Happy motoring.

Coversure Insurance

Hi my name [snip].

Thanks 3T deliveries, and I am glad we could be of service.
It is true what EDB Couriers has said. Unfortunately Courier Insurance premiums are on the increase, and as a result, more and more people are turning to comparison websites. The problem with this is a lot of people are getting inadequate insurance cover by trying to pass for light haulage,and are only looking for the cost at the end of the quotation.
Speaking with a broker, who has knowledge of the insurance industry and can give you advice can be very beneficial. [removed advert]

I would also like to add should you end up in a crash with incorrect insurance your policy will be invalide , Do you really want that to happen ,Do you really want to pay for a crippled person to live the rest of their life do you have a spare 8 million. Its no good saying it wont happen to me it might ..You do after all spend your life on the road

If you are foolish enough to run at low rates and you cant afford proper insurance then why do you jack it in and get a job as your just undercutting those of us that do things proprley and actully uderstand the consequences of complete foolishness

Coversure Insurance

Well said Barnsy Shipping, I could not agree more. I do not understand people who would take incorrect Insurance cover and expect to be covered if they have a claim, just because they have a certificate of insurance in their possession. But unfortunately, this is happening and this is why premiums are increasing.
