Why Small Business Commercial Vehicle Insurance is Important

If you rely on one or more commercial vehicle for the normal running of your business, you’ll know that incidents and accidents can be disastrous. From theft and third-party damage to misfuelling and lost keys, mishaps that takes a business car or business van off the road ‒ can disrupt everything from deliveries to the simple job of visiting customers.

Whether your commercial vehicles are cars or vans, a mixture of both or more specialised, keeping them on the road may be vital to your business. Covers like small business car insurance, small business van insurance, commercial truck insurance, small fleet insurance, and light goods vehicle insurance are there for eventualities just like these, and to help get you moving again, quickly.

Of course, the protection offered by commercial vehicle insurance doesn’t end there. It should also protect you if an accident leaves you liable for injuries sustained by a third party, covering legal defence costs – and for damage to third party property.

About Commercial Vehicles

It’s hard to overstate the importance of commercial vehicles, not just to individual firms, but to society in general. The scale of that impact on everyday life is reflected in the fact that, in Britain today, some five million goods and service vehicles help drive the economy.

That is not lost on the wider public. Recent research found that 9 out of 10 people in the UK feel reduced or restricted services from commercial vehicle driven services would significantly affect their quality of life,1 while 46% recognised they benefitted in some form from commercial vehicle related services in the previous 24 hours.1

In the small business sector, around two million sole traders depend on vans for their livelihoods.1  The so-called white van is a fixture on our roads and in our businesses. There are around 2.5 million on the road, each averaging an annual mileage of 9,426, and with an average contents value of £1,026.2

In recent years, the growth of online shopping has made commercial vehicles all the more important. In fact, the UK is home to the Europe’s largest online retail sector – UK customers spent more than

£65 billion on goods and services online in 2017,1 and commercial vehicles carry almost two billion tonnes of goods the length and breadth of the UK every year.1

All of which only serves to further highlight the importance of protecting those that rely on commercial vehicle fleets - and small business vehicle insurance can play an important role, protecting those businesses, their vehicles, and their customers against the unexpected.
