For when things don’t go to plan

Whilst every effort is made to ensure goods arrive at their destination safely, unfortunately accidents can occur and goods can get damaged or lost in transit, which is where our transit insurance comes in to play.

We provide multiple levels of cover depending on your needs. By default all customers are covered by level 1, but can request higher levels of cover when required. Please note uplift requests must be made prior to transport being arranged. 

Not all goods can be insured for transport. Please see the bottom of this page for a list of excluded goods.

Please note these limits only apply to transport within the United Kingdom. For transport outside of the UK, the CMR convention will apply.

Level 1 – Up to £1,300 per tonne

This is the default cover you will have with us

As a member of Logistics UK (formerly FTA), we use their model conditions of carriage. This covers up to £1,300 per tonne, or £500, whichever is greater. Consequential loss is limited to the value of carriage charges. For full details please view our terms and conditions by clicking here.

Level 2 – Up to £30,000

Provided free of charge on request

We can arrange cover to insure your goods for their full value, up to a maximum of £30,000 free of charge. This is useful if you have expensive, lightweight goods such as electronic equipment, where level 1 may not be sufficient. 

Level 3 – Up to £100,000

Provided on request for a fee

We can arrange cover to insure your goods for their full value, up to a maximum of £100,000 at a cost to you. We can provide a quote for this service on request.

Need more cover?

If your goods are worth more than £100,000 we can look to source specialist cover for your goods. Please let us know if this is the case and we will try to source the appropriate insurance for you.
