Goods In Transit Insurance

Protect the goods you carry UK and abroad with Goods In Transit Insurance arranged through ISIS.

What is goods in transit insurance?

Goods in transit insurance protects you from the costs of any goods that you carry as part of your business activities being lost, stolen or damaged.

If you are a business transporting your own goods or materials, we can help you choose the right level of cover to ensure that should the worse happen to them, the cost of replacement can be covered.

Similarly, if you run a courier or haulage business, carrying goods on behalf of your customers, it’s likely that your customer will require that you have insurance in place. It will probably be a contractual obligation. As a specialist goods in transit insurance broker, we will take the time to understand your needs before recommending the cover would be most suitable for your needs.

Who needs goods in transit insurance?

As outlined above, businesses that are likely to require goods in transit insurance fall into two categories – those that carry their own goods and materials (including any tools or other equipment that you have in your vehicle) – and those who transport goods on behalf of their clients.

Hauliers and couriers are very likely to benefit from having the cover in place. It is highly likely that when transporting goods either for a customer or a third party subcontractor, it will be a contractual requirement to arrange goods in transit insurance. However the level of cover required under each movement will vary significantly dependent on the cover stipulated under the contract.

Arranging flexible goods in transit insurance which will allow you to operate contracts with different levels of cover is essential.
