Commercial Motor Insurance
Use a vehicle for business? Protect your profit from the cost of repairs, legal action, or theft with commercial motor coverage. Commercial motor covers utes, passenger vehicles, vans and more.
What is Commercial Motor Insurance?
Commercial Motor Vehicle Insurance covers your business vehicles. It offers more rigorous and flexible cover than Private Motor Vehicle Insurance to make things easier on you as a business owner. For example:
- Automatic cover for swapping vehicles or buying a new car;
- Most drivers do not need to be listed individually; and
- Automatic cover for accessories up to a certain amount.
Commercial Motor insurance is vital for any business that owns vehicles, especially those using their vehicle for business purposes (tradesman, consultants, real estate and anyone delivering their own goods to customers).

How can we help?
Having a customisable policy is important for protecting your vehicle and the purpose it serves in your business. We can help you tailor your policy so it protects the income-earning role of your asset — and the liability of its drivers.
You’ll also receive recommendations for extensions to cover your highest risks, so you’re not paying for a policy that doesn’t cover what you need.
For every new business quote and renewal, we break down all important changes and comparisons in plain English.
Commercial Motor claim example
Sue operates her own florist, with a van she uses for both personal daily commuting and customer deliveries.
Sue decides to trade in her van for a newer model, but is incredibly busy at the time. She forgets to call her broker to let them know about the trade in, and she sends one of her staff to pick up the new van from the dealership. Of course, on the way back – the staff member has an at fault accident and the new vehicle is damaged.
Because Sue has a commercial motor policy, she is automatically covered for the first 30 days even though she forgot to tell her broker and there are no concerns about her staff member driving it and not being declared. She is fully covered and the new vehicle will be repaired and put back on the road as quickly as possible!
