RHA Bronze Associate

When transporting goods from A to B, it’s wise to protect that all-important cargo with the correct insurance policy. Goods in transit insurance provides cover for a wide range of scenarios including theft, accidental damage, loss of goods and tools giving you ultimate peace of mind.

At Quoteline Direct, we work with our panel of specialist insurance providers to find the right policy for you. So, whether you’re a courier, haulier or an independent tradesman, we’ll tailor a quote to suit your specific needs.

Do I Really Need Goods in Transit Insurance?

One of the main rules of business is to protect your investment – and that means insuring your cargo. If you don’t you could be left seriously out of pocket. While you might have courier insurance which covers your vehicle, goods in transit insurance focusses solely on the vehicle’s contents, providing a much-needed financial safety net should something go wrong in transit.

Goods in transit cover protects your belongings and equipment as well as the belongings of others, which is particularly important for courier services which regularly transport valuable and personal items.
