Goods in transit insurance will usually cover stock, tools and materials against loss, damage and theft 24 hours a day; however, many goods in transit insurance policies stipulate that the vehicle carrying the goods should be secured in a locked compound for a set period, overnight. Therefore, it is important to read your goods in transit insurance documentation carefully, to ensure that you will be financially protected at all times. For example, if the vehicle carrying the goods is parked in a lay-by at 5pm, and a theft occurs, then the goods may be covered, depending on the policy, but if the same incident occurs at 10pm, the goods may not be covered if the policy states that they should be locked in a secure compound.

Some important information the insurer may need to know, in order to provide you with an accurate quotation and adequate cover, are as follows:

  • Your business description
  • The type of goods being carried
  • The estimated value of the goods
  • Goods packaging, transit packing and conditions of carriage and storage
  • How the goods will be transported
  • Terms of the contract between you and your customer
  • Your annual turnover
  • Geographical limits
  • Details of any previous goods in transit insurance claims

In order to obtain the correct cover, a goods in transit insurance policy should be tailored to suit your needs. A 'one size fits all' type of policy could leave you unprotected in the event of a claim. Therefore, providing full and accurate details during the quotation process is of the utmost importance. Similarly, it is vital that you provide all details of previous claims, as failure to do so could result in future claims not being covered by the insurer, or cancellation of your policy due to falsified information.
