As the gig economy continues to expand, more people in the UK than ever will start their own businesses in 2020, and that often means buying or leasing a commercial vehicle to get the job done. News in from Keychoice;
Keychoice, the insurance distribution business owned by SSP, has just announced a new partnership with NIG, the commercial insurance specialists, to offer its broking community access to a fully integrated Commercial vehicle (CV) policy through SSP’s back-office systems.
The NIG Commercial Vehicle insurance policy is designed for single vehicle contracts on a named driver basis, for vehicles up to 3.5 tonnes and offers comprehensive and third party fire & theft cover options. NIG will also be offering preferential rates on the new CV product, making it a very competitive offering for Keychoice members.
As well as the new Keychoice partnership, NIG have also launched two new commercial products on SSP’s commercial e-trading platform. The Tradesman and Shop products have enhanced the growing panel of commercial policies that are available to e-trade.
Claire Faulding, Head of Keychoice and Commercial e-trading at SSP said: “I am delighted to be working with NIG to enhance both our Keychoice and commercial e-trade offerings. By working in partnership, we are continuing to support our Keychoice brokers, helping them to grow their businesses, whilst the new e-traded commercial products reinforces our commitment to grow the e-trading route, enabling our brokers to trade efficiently and provide the best possible service to their customers.”
