How best to insure your mini-fleet

A small fleet or mini fleet is a group of cars and/or vans owned by a business between 2 and 5 vehicles, cars and/or vans. Having multiple cars on the road means your business must have the appropriate insurance cover. Small fleet insurance allows you to insure all of your cars under one policy, saving time and often money. Companies with more than six vehicles may be better investigating fleet motor insurance. Small fleet car insurance can benefit businesses whose directors are looking to insure their cars more cost-effectively, sometimes referred to as multi-car business insurance.

Insuring 2, 3, 4 or 5 cars and / or vans on a mini fleet insurance policy brings with it a number of benefits, not least that you only have to remember one renewal date for all of the vehicles on the small fleet insurance policy. Sometimes known as a multi-car insurance policy, insuring multiple vehicles on one policy can save time and money for those looking to insure up to 5 cars or vans.

Why use small fleet insurance?

Mini fleet car insurance is ideal for a business looking to insure multiple vehicles but without a large fleet, who do not want to insure each car individually. Using a small fleet insurance policy can save time and money when insuring multiple vehicles used by the same company. One of the most significant benefits of this policy type is convenience. A small fleet insurance policy allows you to insure all of your vehicles with a single payment, on a single date and even keep a single set of documents. Small fleet insurance also allows people within the policy to drive other cars on the policy, allowing car sharing when required. Small fleet car or van insurance also makes it easier to grow your fleet, as it can be easily added to the policy at any time.

It is important to remain cautious of who you’re adding to your policy. Drivers under 25 can sometimes increase the cost of your policy or may even be rejected altogether.

Frequently asked questions

I run a small business - can I get a small fleet policy?

"Insuring a small number of vehicles, as few as 2, 3, 4 or 5 vehicles, is quite common and it has not always been easy to arrange cover for all the vehicles on one mini-fleet insurance policy"

My cars all have different renewal dates - can I put them on a mini-fleet policy?

You don't need to cancel all of your car or van insurance policies to start a mini-fleet insurance policy all at the same time, you can start the policy with one vehicle and then add your other cars or vans to the small fleet insurance policy as their respective policy renewal dates come around. Eventually you will have all of your cars on one insurance policy with a single, simple renewal date to remember.

Cover is as flexible as you require and one of the key advantages is that combining all of your vehicles on to one small fleet insurance policy often brings with it a reduction in your overall insurance premiums.
