Tell us your name, age, address, and some other details about yourself.
The Vehicle You Use for Your Courier Business
Tell us about the vehicle you will use for your courier business; we’ll need to know about things like the make and the model.
How You Use the Vehicle
We’ll need to know how you use the vehicle to go about your work, in addition to whether you use it for non-courier and business activities.
Modifications to Your Vehicle
If you or a previous owner made a change to your vehicle in any way, whether for business purposes or not, this could influence the price of cover.
Expected Annual Mileage
We’ll need an estimate of how many annual miles you expect to cover in the next 12 months. As a courier we understand this may depend on demand for your services, so we recommend you over-estimate if unsure.
The Value of Your Vehicle
We’ll ask you for the value of your vehicle so that insurers can give you accurate quotes for the cover you need.
What Will Your Courier Insurance Cost?
The overall cost of your courier insurance will depend on several factors. It is crucial when searching for courier insurance quotes that you provide accurate information around the type of insurance you need and the vehicle you will use. Failure to provide accurate information could lead to you not having the correct insurance. This may mean you do not have cover for accidents, and you may also be liable for prosecution.
As with car insurance, the biggest factor that influences the cost of courier insurance is your age. If you’re a courier under the age of 25, you will typically find that insurance is more costly than it will be for older and more experienced drivers.
Other factors that will influence the cost of your courier insurance include the vehicle you use, your mileage, and the products you plan to transport and deliver.

How to Get Cheaper Courier Insurance
At The Money Pig, we’re committed to helping you find the best courier insurance deal possible. In addition to using our comparison tool, there are many ways you can help yourself to reduce the cost of your courier insurance.
What Type of Courier Insurance Do I Need?
If you are using a van for courier purposes, you will need to take out a commercial van insurance policy rather than a private use one. If you are using your car for courier purposes, you can still add relevant insurance cover. However, the number of insurers that will offer courier insurance for your car may be small. As a result, you should consider shopping for specialist courier insurance for your car, rather than seeking it from your existing insurer.
If you are planning to use your vehicle for any type of goods transportation in return for payment, it is a legal requirement to have courier insurance.
The specific type of courier insurance you need will depend on how you’re going to use your vehicle and the type of courier work you plan to do.
Courier Insurance Specifically for Your Needs
While courier insurance itself is a specialist type of insurance, you might find that you need an even more specific type of cover. The Money Pig can help you to find specialist courier insurance to complement your basic level of cover. We highlight some of the specific types of courier insurance you will find from our insurers below.
If you’re running a courier business, having any driver insurance will allow anyone to drive your vehicle and transport goods without needing to be named on the policy. This can help you operate a more flexible business and may allow you to get goods where they need to be more quickly.
If you run a courier business and have more than one vehicle, it may be cheaper to insure all your vehicles as a fleet rather than on an individual basis. We can help connect you to insurers that offer fleet insurance.
There’s no law against becoming a courier before the age of 25, but it can be more difficult to get insured. We can help you find insurers that specialise in cover for under 25s to ensure you get the best courier insurance deal at the lowest possible price.
Telematics, or black box insurance, can reward you with cheaper cover if you show you are a responsible driver. We will connect you with insurers that offer telematics cover for those using their vehicle to earn money as a courier.
High Value or Dangerous
Goods Courier Insurance
Transporting high value and dangerous goods can be financially lucrative. Still, it also carries added risk, and thus many insurers don’t offer cover. If you wish to explore the opportunities of transporting such products, we can help you find the cover that will protect you and the goods you will carry.

While many haulage insurance policies will cover you for driving in Europe as standard, you might get a better level of cover by finding specialist cover for this need. You can find specialist European courier insurance with The Money Pig!
