Take control of your motor fleet insurance expenditure

Take control of your motor fleet insurance expenditure

Traditional insurance aims to make a profit by charging premiums in excess of expected losses. Insurers provide claims assistance and you will pay an annual premium and revisit in 12 months’ time.

But how do you speed up the claims process and take more control in settlement and production of management information in order that you can make informed decisions on the management of your motor fleet insurance?

The answer is a well-structured self-insurance programme that enables you to reduce claims, reduce insurance premium tax and remove yourself from insurance market cycles and only using insurance companies if a major accident or natural catastrophe occurs.
