Victoria, London ( Prsplash ) November 3, 2011 - Cover 4 Fleet Insurance, the UK fleet insurance specialist, publish some useful tips to help companies keep their fleet insurance costs lower.

There are a number of practices that you can adopt to lower the costs associated with fleet insurance. Some fleets feel under too much pressure to start to integrate these practices. If you feel you may fall into this category, pay attention to the sections below, as they will give you some useful tips on how you can save more money on your fleet insurance policy, whilst over time preventing costly accidents and wear and tear on fleet vehicles.

Fleet Insurance Costs And Driver Training Programs
Fleet driving training companies offer programs where you can train professional drivers. This works really well for those with commercial policies, where other drivers would have to be covered. However, to get the most out of this program, you will want to train drivers who already have good driving records. If they have already gone through a professional program, this would be an added plus.

Granted, you will have to pay to participate in this program. However, it is a very worthwhile investment. It will lower your fleet insurance premiums while preventing accidents in the future. If your drivers know how to handle themselves on the road, it is unlikely that you will ever have to file a claim on your policy.

In fact, most of the managers at Fleet insurance will want all of your drivers to enrol in their program. By taking this approach, they ensure that everyone on your team has the necessary skills to become a safe driver. In turn, they lessen their chances of having to process a claim in the future.

Why Record Keeping Matters With Fleet Insurance
You should record anything that happens while your drivers are on the road. Otherwise, even the smallest of accidents could delay the filing of your claim. The last thing you want is to lose money due to poor record keeping. So, no matter how tedious it may seem, make a log of what happens when you or your employees go out driving. Also remember that if you get repairs under your insurance policy, you will end up spending less money.

Ultimately, you want to keep tabs on your situation. This goes beyond you and your drivers, as you should also be on top of best fleet driving practices themselves. Every six months or so, call your manager and see if they are offering any special deals. Sometimes a new promotion could save an existing customer hundreds of dollars on their policy. However, you will have to call and ask, as sometimes promotions are not openly advertised.

With that being said, if you are paying too much for your fleet insurance, go on and call your provider anyhow to see what you can do about it. Have them go through all your records to see if you are eligible for a discount. If not, tell them that you want to enrol your drivers in Fleet Drivers Training course. By making this move, you will be taking one of the most important steps towards keep the cost of fleet insurance lower than before and not only that but these practices improve the overall fleet driving performance.
