What is delivery service insurance?

Delivery service insurance gives you the insurance you need to make deliveries with your van as part of your job. Delivery courier insurance is specifically designed to help drivers who make single or multiple site deliveries as part of their work, something that isn’t ordinarily covered with traditional van insurance.

With delivery service insurance you’re covered to make the drops you need to make and because it’s a short-term policy, you only pay for the cover you need. From just 1 hour up to 28 days at a time, you can find that cover that suits your situation.

What does delivery service insurance cover? 

With delivery service insurance from Tempcover, you get fully comprehensive cover as standard. This means that should you be involved in an accident, any damage to you, your vehicle or any third parties is covered.
