Courier ‘Network’ – member’s insurance details

Why is it relevant to anyone whether another member has the correct Motor or Employers’ Liability insurance?

Personally I think that knowing the actual legal entity behind a business is far more important than knowing they’ve insured themselves.

    I wasn’t referring to GIT insurance Richard, just Motor & Employer’s Liability. I couldn’t give a damn whether a suppliers got them or not to be honest. If they haven’t then they’re extremely foolish but it’s their problem not ours. There’s no liability that could fall on us from a supplier failing to have the correct Motor or EL insurance. To be fair, we’d probably avoid them like the plague if we knew – simply because we’d be worried about what other corners they’re cutting – but I wouldn’t waste my time checking something that isn’t even relevant to us.

    “Accredited Couriers are responsible for ensuring that the details displayed are accurate and up to date.”

    You’re meant to monitor your own directory entry and fax your new details to the courier ‘Network’ when appropriate.

    If you order some flowers to be delivered do you demand to see the florist’s vehicle insurance first? What’s the difference?
