Goods in transit cover in action

Goods In Transit

A self employed delivery driver working for a major courier company is required to have his own goods in transit insurance coverage due to being classified as a self employed contractor.

While carrying out a delivery on one of his usual routes he is forced to break very suddenly. He later discovers after delivering goods that some have been damaged, most likely due to the heavy breaking earlier.

What was covered?

Due to having Goods in transit (GIT) cover on the policy, this self employed courier was able to make a claim for the value of the damaged goods.
