Goods in Transit Insurance

What is Goods in Transit Insurance?

Also referred to as Freight liability, our policy will protect against claims made against you for damage to goods being transported by you. Your Novas Policy also extends to provide contingent cover for damage to goods being transported by a sub-contractor appointed by you.

  1. Stolen items
  2. Lost items
  3. Damaged Items
  4. Accidental damage

We DO NOT, under this policy, cover the actual vehicle you drive BUT only the goods being carried within the vehicle.

With cover automatically provided to £50,000 (irrespective of weight) for most of the major courier networks, obtaining that contract should be a smoother process. Unlike many insurers, we automatically provide cover for theft of attractive goods and you or your driver’s personal effects. Hand held scanners and European cover are also automatically covered.

Why do I need Goods in Transit insurance?

When you transport goods under a contract of hire and reward the responsibility for the care of those goods falls upon you as the carrier. Without proof of Goods in Transit cover you will not be able to carry for any of the major networks and should you carry without such cover the financial implications can be crippling to any business.

I deliver goods in Europe will I be covered?

Yes. Our Novas policy provides automatic cover under the CMR convention at 8.33 SDR per kilo subject to a financial limit of £500,000 an one loss. Unlike much of the competition your Novas policy also provides cover for Cabotage. Should you be asked to collect and deliver within the borders of a EU member state other than the British Isles (Cabotage) we will provide cover up to £50,000 for any one loss.

Public Liability Insurance

What is Public Liability Insurance?

Whilst in many instances your business motor insurance policy will cover damage or injury to third parties whilst using the vehicle, there are many instances where your business will bring you into contact with the public outside the everyday use of the vehicle. For instance, whilst loading or unloading, making a delivery to premises and access by the public to your business premises.

In such circumstances, Public Liability cover will protect you against injury to persons or damage to property caused by you whilst carrying out your business activities. For example

  1. Bodily injury
  2. Damage to material property
  3. Trespass nuisance or obstruction
  4. Personal and advertising injury offences committed

Your Novas Public Liability policy will protect you against the costs of compensation to be paid out as well as the legal expenses incurred during the claims process.

When is public liability useful?

You will be covered under the following cases:

  1. A member of the public suffers injury after tripping over a box at the kerbside whilst you are unloading
  2. You cause damage to an office foyer carpet whilst delivering goods using a pallet truck
