    Whit van drivers - what sort of insurance does your company have?

    A guy at our work place had a very small bump the other day, but cracked the radiator on the van he was driving, also some other minor damage.

    "Company policy" is that the driver pays the excess on the insurance - which is over £500!!

    So he had two options. Either pay the excess, or get it repaired by a pricey garage for £490.

    What sort of policy is in place at your work? Anyone else have to contend with these ridiculous prices?

    Bit worried about the risks of a bump, we cover a lot of miles some times and even through very snowy conditions.

    We dont have to pay for any damage, as long as we say we are sorry.
    Not sure what insurance the company uses.

    Whit van?

    When I did Part Time home delivery for Sainsburys last year you had to pay the excess if you had a bump,you also have to declare this to your own insurance company

    I never had a bump though because I am good

    Racist thread against silver van drivers, reported :thumbsup:

    If you crash the van on company time, they pay, if it's out of hours, you pay

    if you have a crash in a company vehicle it has nothing to do with your personnel insurance

    I dont think there is a set rule on this.
    As far as my company goes, as we cant use the vans in our own time, we are not required to pay as it is in company time.
