If you own or manage a business that has a fleet of cars then one of the many issues you will encounter is fleet insurance. This may seem daunting at first but securing a reasonable policy for a fleet or mini-fleet does not have to be complicated.

Many business owners will provide their employees with company cars. Other businesses such as taxi firms or delivery companies will require a fleet of cars or vans in order to provide a service. In either case the vehicles are essential to the success of the business.

Business owners will no doubt be concerned about numerous aspects of owning a fleet of vehicles. Choosing the right vehicle will mean selecting a brand and model that suits the company and is cost effective. It’s no use purchasing a fleet made up of BMW 3-Series executive cars if your budget won’t stretch to maintaining them, even if BMW offer a Hybrid, low-emission model – something which has recently become important to companies and the tax man. Conversely, it may well be suitable to offer luxurious vehicles to your drivers if you operate a taxi firm.

Employers may also be faced with the choice of leasing a fleet or buying several vehicles. There is also the added complication of organising fleet management and vehicle tracking systems, not to mention the fuel costs and low-carbon emission responsibility.

According to a recent survey , the most popular company cars to date are the Skoda Citigo, the Ford Fiesta, and the Kia Ceed with the traditional Mondeo following closely behind. These vehicles appear, for the moment, to be most popular and the most efficient means of getting employees around.

It’s clear that there is much choice involved in owning a fleet of vehicles and it isn’t always easy. The good news is that acquiring insurance for your fleet is simple. The best way to save time and money is to contact your local insurance broker and ask them to issue a quote for your fleet.
