Tailored Advice – Goods in Transit Insurance cover with Stuarts

Goods in Transit Insurance cover is often the term used to describe cover for goods/ items carried in your vehicle as part of your trading activities.

It can also refer to Marine Cargo/ Goods in Transit which normally refers to goods being transported by others but for which you are responsible e.g. importing a consignment of goods from China by sea.

With Goods in Transit insurance you are getting peace of mind that should the goods be lost, stolen or damaged whilst in transit you will have insurance cover in place to protect you (subject to terms and conditions – please check with us).

Standard Home Insurance Covers

What to expect?

The two key types of Goods in Transit are;

1. Carriage of own goods – when you are transporting business related goods, for example a tradesperson transporting his/her own tools in his/her van or truck.

2. Marine Cargo / Goods in Transit Insurance provides cover for goods whilst being transported by another party by road, sea or air. We can normally arrange All Risks Cover to cover most types of loss or damage.

What else to consider?

A big question here is how much to insure the goods for.

The answer is that you should insure for the replacement cost of the goods.

For Marine Cargo/ Goods in transit, prior to confirming cover, you will be required to give details of “the voyage” e.g. by, sea, by road or by air and the maximum load for each transit.
