New Fleet Product ~ High risk trades & adverse claims

Published: 7/5/15

We are delighted to announce the arrival of a new fleet facility especially for high risk trades such as couriers or taxis and those with an adverse claims history.

Given that these risks are often more difficult to place – this new product is particularly welcome as we strive to offer you greater product choice. Underwriters in this new market are keen to write business, which should mean better terms for you.

If you are a courier or taxi business, or if any of your drivers have problems with their claims history – please contact the fleet team on 0845 371 0769 for a quotation.

Controlling cost with fleet telematics

Cost control and reduction is the on-going challenge for fleet operators, not forgetting issues of safety and driver management. Improvements in telematics technology means that this type of driver tracking system really can offer significant benefits to companies.

Costs can be reduced by considering:

Driving patterns – track speed, driving style, including braking and acceleration to ensure that each driver is driving to optimum standards and fuel efficiency. Perhaps more importantly it can also expose dangerous or careless driving.

Traffic and congestion – instant access to traffic delays and congestion enables fleet controllers to give updates on delays to customers and maintain schedules. Streetview and Google maps mean drivers/controllers can search alternative routes as required.

Geofencing – to ensure drivers stick to designated routes chosen for their efficiency. If a driver veers off-route, the fleet controller will be alerted and can contact the driver.

CO2 emissions – can be monitored to ensure they comply with governmental standards.

Servicing and maintenance – plan your servicing and general upkeep of fleet vehicles by having specific data as to their exact mileage and usage.

Telematics Mapping – this allows you to replay a drivers movements and driving as if you were the driver.

Overall, there can be great savings made from monitoring the efficiency of your fleet and trimming down costs where possible.

The system can be used in various ways to produce such things as daily logs, driver briefing and league tables. You determine what triggers data capture and set up alerts dependent on what you want to know.

Our telematics facility has been well tried and tested, having already sold over 45,000 units with major insurers and used for tracking large fleets of over 100 vehicles. They offer a number of benefits as standard:

  • Price includes 36 months warranty
  • Rental is direct and is not financed through a third party
  • Mobile app is included free of charge
  • Training is provided free of charge
  • Saturday and Sunday installation is available at no extra charge
  • Can provide driver ID for a one-off charge per vehicle

To find out more about fleet telematics please contact any member of the fleet team - Dave Stoneman, Ian Leigh, John Bishop - on 0845 371 0769.
