Insuring a Fleet of Cars
September 5, 2016
Commercial Vehicle Insurance is specifically for standalone motor fleets to provide effective risk management. Insurance for a fleet involves damage or loss to vehicles and third party accidents. It’s the ideal way of insuring a fleet of cars.
The heavy haulage industry contributes to the South African economy. Trucks hauls more than 80% of goods traded in South Africa. Truck owners and their drivers face many dangers, risks and pressures during the transport of these goods. They require protection in the form of fleet insurance.
Insuring a Fleet of Cars – What is a Fleet of Cars?
A “fleet” is when more than 25 vehicles belong to a company, but policies can include coverage for over 100 vehicles. Insurance is typically available for any South African registered motorcar, motorcycle, light delivery vehicle, caravan or trailer, as well as agricultural, construction and material handling vehicles.
Fleet insurance can be tailored to suit your needs. AIG is one such company that can work with your insurance broker to customise the right solution for your organisation. They guarantee coverage on vehicles, associated contents, third party property and injury cover.
