GIT - Goods in Transit Insurance
GIT insurance is normally taken out by the haulier to cover
any goods that he carries against loss, theft or damage.
It is important for the haulier to take out GIT insurance so that
he can claim on the insurance company if the goods are stolen, lost or damaged.
The hauliers customer will also want the haulier to have the cover,
so that his goods are insured while in transit.
You should get a certificate from the insurance company.
Your customer may want to see it before giving you the job.
When checking the policy
- check the start and expiry dates
- check the Name and Address of the Person or Company Covered
- check the Amount of the cover many people will specify a minimum of £10,000
- check what vehicle is covered
The cost of insurance will vary according to the vehicle type (van or truck or lorry) and number of vehicles,
where the cover is to operate (UK only, Europe - for some reason Italy is more expensive?)
and the type and value of goods being carried.
Example costs range from about 200 pounds for 10,000 cover on a van
to 1000 if you want to drive a truck or lorry to Italy.
Another 'interesting' anomaly is that for some reason it will cost you more if you are a courier, than if all you do is
'light haulage' forum discussion.
It may be worth discussing the difference with your broker.
