What is goods-in-transit and public liability insurance?

Goods-in-transit insurance (GIT insurance) protects your business from losses incurred when you’re transporting or delivering goods. 

The cover applies if the goods are stolen, lost or damaged, including in an accidental collision. Standard car or van insurance might not cover goods.

Public liability insurance offers additional protection against injury or damage to third parties or their property.

How to get the best goods-in-transit and public liability cover

The best policy is the one that offers the cover your business needs at the lowest price. Start by working out what protection your business needs then use our comparison tools to help save money on your insurance.

How to get the cover you need

Not all policies will be suitable for all businesses. When comparing insurance, it helps to consider:

  • Types of business insured: some insurers offer specialist cover for couriers and haulage services, but others only cover smaller businesses

  • Goods-in-transit cover: covers theft, loss or damage to goods being moved from one place to another. Most policies have a maximum cover limit– for example £10,000 – so make sure this is enough to cover your needs

  • Public liability options: covers injury, illness and death to third parties caused by your business, as well as damage to other people's property. You can usually choose a limit of liability between £1 million and £5 million

If you’re not sure what level of cover your business needs, use this comparison to contact a broker. It can compare quotes for you and help advise you on suitable policies.

Here’s more on how to get the right insurance for your business.

How to save money

Once you’ve determined your ideal level of cover, these simple steps can help you save money:

  • Compare quotes online: get as many quotes as possible to find the best price. You can then haggle with insurers to potentially get a cheaper premium

  • Take a higher voluntary excess: selecting a higher excess can reduce premiums, but choose an amount you can afford to pay if you need to claim

  • Pay for your policy up-front: most insurers charge interest if you split the cost of your premium over monthly payments. If you can afford to pay in full, your insurance will cost less
