Peace of mind vehicle insurance cover
Whether you opt for the professional driver vehicle delivery service (sometimes called trade plates) or a transported vehicle delivery service, you will want to know that your vehicle is fully insured whilst in the delivery agent's care.
Note: Should your vehicle be of a higher value than the limits below, please advise and we will ensure appropriate extra cover is applied, often at no extra cost.
Shift A Car ensures that the minimum level of vehicle insurance cover is in place for your vehicle delivery service is:
- £100,000 cover for each vehicle
- £1,000,000 Public Liability Insurance
- All insurances are provided by a reputable UK based insurer with a minimum Standard & Poors financial rating of A
When does the insurance cover start and stop?
At the collection and delivery points of the delivery service from postcode to postcode. Your delivery agent will perform a vehicle inspection or vehicle condition report. This is designed to establish and record the condition of the vehicle. It is very important that both you and the delivery agent agree on the condition of the vehicle and note any particular damage on the paperwork or electronic inspection app before the delivery agent takes responsibility for the vehicle. There should be no change to the vehicle condition at the delivery point.
What is NOT included?
Personal items can be left in vehicles for the delivery and should be noted on the vehicle collection and delivery inspection sheets. However, personal belongings in the vehicle will not be covered by the Goods in Transit or Roads Risks insurance.
If you opt for the professional driver service, we provide you with a driver to simply drive your car as if you were driving it yourself. Any damage caused when the vehicle is in his or her care is covered by insurance, EXCEPT stone chips and glass damage (windscreen and front lights). Glass damage should be covered by your policy as this type of damage is considered beyond the drivers control and would happen if being driven by you or anyone else.
