Delivery Van Insurance Singapore
The delivery van is a goods vehicle which has to be covered under a commercial vehicle motor insurance policy in Singapore.
Although there are people who install sofa seats in the cargo decks of delivery vans, it is important to note that delivery vans are not meant to be used like cars or passenger vehicles.
The cargo deck of a delivery van is designed to carry goods, not passengers.
Self installed sofa seats are actually very dangerous for passengers as it will put passengers’ lives at risk.
Insured Delivery Van Usage
It is also important to note that if the insured vehicle usage for a delivery van does not include carrying passengers who are not employees of the Policyholder, ferrying family members and friends who are not employees of the Policyholder will be subjecting them to risk, because the motor insurance coverage does not cover them.
The insured usage of a vehicle is typically stated in the Limitations as to Use section of the Certificate of Insurance.
