If you run a van for your small business, you're probably out on the road a lot, driving to jobs, picking up parts, meeting customers and more. But are you aware there's a limit to the amount of hours you can drive in a day?
The gov.uk website details the Domestic Rules on drivers' hours for goods vehicles under 3.5 tonnes. You're limited to 10 hours of daily driving; this applies from the moment you start the engine, and includes off road time and time spent in the van with the engine running. The limit applies to when the van is both stationary and moving.
If you don't abide by these rules you could face a fine of up to £300 for going over the limit, as well as a custodial sentence if you cause an accident.
If you're out on the road a lot, you need to make sure you're well covered by quality van insurance. At Hastings Direct, we offer a range of flexible insurance options; making sure drivers get the right level of cover for the best possible price.
For added peace of mind, you can add optional extras, like windscreen protection, personal accident insurance and breakdown cover.
No — you'll need to add tools in transit insurance to your policy. Depending on the premium you pay, you'll receive either £2,500 or £5,000 worth of cover for tools that are lost, damaged or destroyed while being loaded upon, carried by, temporarily housed upon, or being unloaded from the insured van.
Unfortunately not. If you've built up a no claims discount driving a car, you can only transfer it to another car. No claims discounts can't be applied to multiple vehicles.
If you need to report an incident or make a claim, call us as soon as possible on 0333 321 9800. We'll ask you for your policy number so make sure you have it to hand. Lines are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
