Fleet Insurance is an important and effective part of managing the commercial fleet of a business and also assesses the risk of the entire fleet.

In the insurance industry, anything related to vehicles pose many challenges. This is mainly due to the following:

  • The cost of parts – most of which must be imported;
  • Cost of reinsurance being bought by a weak Rand;
  • Road conditions.

When it comes to vehicle fleets, all of the above impacts - and this in return, affects the premiums on commercial fleet insurance.

Some insurers set target criteria of a minimum amount of vehicles to qualify as a commercial fleet. Niche commercial fleet underwriters may look at a smaller number of vehicles in order to qualify as commercial fleet. They may also look at a tailor made solution from small delivery vehicles, car hire companies and allowance schemes for businesses.
