Whether your company has five vehicles, a fleet of more than a hundred vehicles, service rigs or any other vehicles which operate on public roadways, you will be required by law to hold a minimum level of insurance.

How to Know if Your Vehicle is for Commercial Use

A car, truck or trailer that is used for delivery or carrying goods is a commercial vehicle.

A pizza delivery car, a contractor’s van, a school bus, or a flatdeck trailer used to haul cargo as part of your business are all examples of commercial-use vehicles.

The business use of a vehicle defined by ICBC refers to a vehicle being used in your profession and includes being paid for its use. (Not delivery or carrying goods.)

 

What Is a Fleet?

A fleet is 5 or more vehicles that are registered and/or leased to a single business owner or company and enrolled in ICBC’s Fleet Plan. You can get up to a 63% discount.

Fleets with 5 to 19 vehicles have the option to enroll in a Fleet Plan. Fleets of 20 or more vehicles are required to enroll.

Trailers don’t count towards eligibility but can be included and receive a discount after the fleet is established. You can have a fleet of just trailers and take advantage of a common expiry date.
