Transportation and Haulage Insurance
A motor fleet policy is a single policy covering multiple vehicles
A fleet policy may comprise cars, vans, motor cycles, lorries, agricultural vehicles, contractors’ plant or special types. Or any mix of these.
Fleet-rated policies are available to businesses with two or more vehicles.
Typically, a motor fleet policy will prove to be the most cost-effective way of insuring company vehicles.
If you currently hold individual no claims bonus rated motor policies, Glentworth have access to markets who can convert the no claims bonus to a fleet-rated policy.
Glentworth can arrange tailored policies for any size of fleet and risk profile including:
Haulage – including carriage of hazardous goods and foreign use
Private ambulances – including blue light cover
Taxis – private hire or public hire
Distressed risks with a high incidence of claims
Young and/or inexperienced drivers
High value vehicles
Carriage of celebrities
Why do you need this insurance?
Can you answer yes to any of these statements?

I can highly recommend the services of Glentworth. My business is dependent upon having a broker who can respond promptly to changes in my insurance requirements and to help me in times of crisis. It’s reassuring to work with a broker who understands the haulage industry, provides clear advice and always acts in my best interests – this gives me peace of mind to focus on the day-to-day needs of my business.
