What is Deliv's Insurance Policy?

We hope that you never get into an accident but accidents do happen, and it’s important you know how and when our Deliv policies cover you. The following is an overview of how our insurance policies work and the coverages included in our insurance policies (unless otherwise noted, these coverages are in effect from the time you pickup a package until the time you deliver the last package in app).

Note: You must carry state minimum limits of Insurance on your personal auto and carry a valid license in good standing to be covered.

Liability Coverage

Our insurance policy is designed to kick in if you are in an accident and at fault and your personal insurance denies coverage, or the limits are exhausted. The policy has a $1,000,000 per accident and an additional access policy to max limit of $ 10,000,000.

Contingent Collision Coverage

Our contingent collision coverage is designed to cover physical damage to your vehicle resulting from an accident as long as you have obtained collision coverage on your personal automobile policy. The policy has a $2,500 deductible and a $50,000 maximum for physical damage to your vehicle. This policy is designed to step in if the party at fault falls short or are uninsured and your personal insurance fails to respond.

Contingent Comprehensive Coverage

Our contingent collision coverage is designed to cover physical damage to your vehicle resulting from a non-collision event (for example a fire, vandalism, a natural disaster, etc.) as long as you have obtained comprehensive coverage on your personal automobile policy. The Deliv policy is a $2500 deductible and a $50000 maximum for physical damage to your vehicle. This policy kicks in if your personal insurance fails to respond.

How do Taxes Work?

As an independent contractor, you will file taxes according to the self employment guidelines. Our team will send you a 1099 form that you will use to report the income earned as a Deliv driver partner. Please contact your tax advisor for more specific information.

What if I don't have a car?

Are you looking to rent a car for on-demand work?
