Does your company rent or lease vehicles to other businesses or the public? We can help protect your business’s success by recommending the right self-hire insurance for your company.
These policies generally cover the vehicle and the driver operating it for the duration of the rental contract with your business. Of course, this type of insurance is a legal requirement. Nonetheless, it gives you the peace of mind that your business assets are insured in case of an accident.

Besides lowering your risk profile and enhancing your protection, our team can also recommend additional methods to reduce your insurance cost – especially if you are considered as high risk due to your vehicle usage and location. For example, we may suggest that site security and storage be improved; advise on managing customer ages and profiles; discuss vehicle tracking systems, remote telemetry, and on-board cameras for accident recording; and recommend a flexible approach to excess levels and coverage amounts.
