Goods in transit insurance

Make sure your goods are covered while they're on the move

In a nutshell

When a pothole hits your delivery van that's full of precious cargo, you need comprehensive cover with a no-holes policy. King Price knows that transport damage and theft happen all-too-often, whether the goods are in your own motor, or being transported by your business fleet or professional carriers. With the king's cover, this damage won't slow down your business.

  • All risks: You're covered for the loss of, or damage to, goods in transit that belong to you or for which you're responsible. We'll cover you whether the cause is an accident or incident and we'll pay fire extinguishing charges (as long as the cause isn't excluded by King Price).
