How to review and optimise your fleet insurance in 2021
If vehicles and transport play an important part in your business, then looking at your Fleet Insurance and getting it reviewed could be a good move.
Motor Fleet Insurance, often just called Fleet Insurance, provides a combined insurance policy that gives coverage for all your business’ commercial motor vehicles. Fleet insurance enables you to insure them collectively, rather than having to insure each vehicle individually.
Tips to review and optimise your fleet insurance for 2021
Do you still need all your fleet of commercial vehicles?
Has the volume of your business changed due to the economic challenges of 2020? Are you using your vehicles as often as before or could there be an opportunity to reduce the size of your commercial fleet?
Do you store your fleet at one location?
Storing vehicles at one location may provide some cost savings to your business. However, storing vehicles at one location may bring increased insurance risks. For example, if all the fleet are stored together and a hail storm or fire passes through the location, then all vehicles may be damaged as a result.
Have you assessed the market value of your fleet?
With economic challenges, there may be an increase in the number of second-hand commercial vehicles coming onto the market in the next few years. You may want to investigate how the market value of your commercial vehicles has changed.
Consider Laid Up Cover for your fleet?
If you are to put your fleet into longer-term storage or reduce usage, then explore how laid up cover may be able to give you fleet insurance whilst your fleet is laid up.
Evaluate the downtime cost when your Fleet is off the road?
When one of your fleets is off the road, there can be a significant impact and cost on your business operations. Consider the value that each vehicle in your fleet can bring to your business.
