Is it possible to use a van for courier work when it is leased by another company. The company in question is my wifes and they can lease a brand new lwb vivaro and was wondering if anyone knew if it was legal for me to use courier work and would i be able to insure in my name or would it have to be in the companies name.

I imagine the only correct answer would be to ask the leasing company

Main thing to watch out for would be excess mileage charges imposed at the end of some leases.

And of course correct insurances.

You cant have 2 ins policies for same vehicle so if its insured thru other company you wont be able to insure it yourself, so you would have to check with other company if their insurance would cover a non-employee on their company policy, i doubt it would, if it does then you would also have to check whether it includes " for hire and reward "
