Goods-in-Transit

Insuring the goods you carry is essential for peace of mind and often necessary as part of a contract. Avis Insurance provides goods in transit insurance for haulage companies to cover you against loss or damage to the goods you are carrying. This insurance can also protect the goods whilst being stored as part of a journey.

Working for Amazon or Maritime?

Of course, we arrange goods-in-transit insurance for all kinds of hauliers but if you carry goods on behalf of these companies then you'll need specially enhanced cover.

For example, if you have a contract with Amazon they require, as standard, £100k All Risks cover per vehicle, and in some cases they stipulate a requirement of up to £180k - and this is something we can easily arrange.

 

And a standard Maritime contract will require enhanced RHA cover of £6,500 per tonne for most goods, increasing to £13,000 per tonne for bottled wine. 

Indeed, whoever your contract is with, our flexible policies can cover your requirements. Just speak to one of our friendly, knowledgeable team and you'll soon be on your way!
