Does Amazon Flex provide insurance for its drivers?
Yes. Amazon Flex provides its drivers with a commercial policy, though it also advises them to maintain their personal auto insurance if they’re making deliveries with their personal vehicle.
Amazon provides the Amazon Flex Auto Policy, which includes uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage, auto liability coverage, and contingent comprehensive and collision coverage at no cost to their drivers, provided they’re using Amazon Flex to pick up packages, deliver packages, or return undelivered packages back to their place of origin.
That said, Amazon requires drivers using their personal vehicle to maintain their personal auto insurance. If you’re using a rented or borrowed vehicle, you must also get the required insurance coverage.
Why do you need your own commercial auto insurance policy when delivery for Amazon Flex?
This is because some personal insurance policies prohibit drivers from using their vehicles for any courier work, even when you have a separate insurance policy for the delivery work from Amazon Flex. Every time you use your vehicle for Amazon Flex, your personal insurance is voided. This means you need a commercial policy for extra protection, and to be in compliance with Amazon Flex dover requirements for personal auto insurance.
Why does driving for Amazon Flex void your personal auto insurance policy?
Amazon Flex is a delivery business. As long as you’re using your vehicle to make deliveries for a reward, you need commercial insurance. Insurance providers consider the risk for “misrepresentation of facts.” When signing up for your auto insurance, and you indicate that you use your vehicle primarily for personal trips or commute, then using your vehicle for Amazon Flex violates the terms of your insurance policy, regardless of the additional cover provided by Amazon Flex.
Moreover, auto insurance providers typically include a clause in their policies claiming that any misrepresentation or false statements about your personal information or the vehicle are grounds for voiding and even terminating the cover.Read Mike W.'s review of Brookhurst Insurance Services on Yelp
