Our Commercial Motor Vehicle Insurance is designed to help your business cover the costs that may arise from events such as accidental damage to, or theft of, your business vehicles, such as cars, vans, utes and light trucks.

Cover up to two vehicles online with your Public and Products Liability Insurance as part of a Business Insurance Pack, or call us if you need cover for up to 20 vehicles.

Helpful tip: Do you use your personal vehicle for business purposes? Your personal car insurance may not cover you for damage to third-party property – or your own vehicle – when used in relation to your business. Check your personal car policy to see if you’re covered.

Need to insure multiple vehicles?
You can cover up to two online or call us to insure up to 20 vehicles as part of a Business Insurance Pack or through standalone Commercial Motor Insurance.
Choose from three levels of business car insurance covers to suit your business needs: Comprehensive, Fire and Theft, or Third Party Property Damage.

Cover for damage or loss to your vehicle and damage it causes to third-party property, when you’re partly or fully at fault of an accident.
  • Loss or damage to your vehicle
  • Covers the cost of replacing or repairing your vehicle following specified events: accidental damage including damage caused by fire, hail, flood, storm, earthquake; or theft, or malicious damage. We’ll pay the market value or agreed value sum insured based on the cover you’ve selected for your vehicle/s. 
  • Damage to third-party property
  • Covers what you’re legally liable to pay (up to $30 million) as compensation for loss or damage to someone else’s property caused by a motor vehicle accident with your vehicle. If a loss arises when dangerous goods are being transported, cover is limited up to $5 million.
