Quote Chief, a leading insurance comparison website based in the U.K., announced that it is now helping fast food delivery van drivers find the most competitive insurance quotes.
According to a press release, the food delivery market currently accounts for 4 percent of all food sold at restaurants and fast food outlets, and that figure is anticipated to climb by as much as 3.5 percent per year over the next five years.
Quote Chief quickly realized that the insurance market wasn’t competitive enough for fast food van delivery drivers, with no easy way to compare coverage from different insurers. By creating a network of insurance brokers, Quote Chief is encouraging competition between insurers and offering van delivery drivers a way to compare competitive quotes for delivering fast food in their own vans.
“People have often turned to fast food delivery driving as a second source of income, more so in recent years due to all of the financial instability that we have faced,” said Nathan Jones, co-founder of Quote Chief. “With flexible working hours, often available in the evenings and weekends after finishing your day job, it can be a good top up to your income. We noticed that there weren’t any options for takeaway drivers to compare insurance policies that offer them the right level of cover to use their own vehicle for making deliveries, and we didn’t want people to be put off getting out there and earning more due to massive insurance costs.”
The company has partnered with insurance brokers who can offer quick and competitive insurance quotes, as well as cover most restaurant delivery drivers with few restrictions. Quote Chief also has a mobile-friendly website that allows its customers to search for quotes quickly and easily.
“We expect the fast food delivery market to grow in line with analyst estimates and are looking to increase our resources to meet the growing demand for hot food delivery insurance, as there will definitely be more and more delivery drivers needed to keep up with demand,” Jones said.
