If you use a van as part of your business activity, our Van Insurance can offer competitive premiums, whilst also keeping you mobile in the event of a claim
Making a claim can be stressful and inconvenient – we look to minimise the impact it has on you and your business by making the process quick and easy. If your van is involved in an accident, even if it’s outside of office hours or on a public holiday, you can report the incident immediately, thanks to our 24/7 claims reporting helpline.
Our motor claims are dealt with through our partnership with ALPS (Auto Legal Protection Services Ltd) – they handle all correspondence with insurers on your behalf, and in some circumstances they can even arrange a like-for-like replacement vehicle whilst yours is repaired.
Here’s a brief summary of what you can expect from our Van Insurance:
- 24/7 Claims Helpline, answered within 10 seconds
- Like-for-like replacement vehicle for up to 14 days
- Dedicated claims handler for the duration of the claim
Who needs Van Insurance?
Third party motor insurance is compulsory in the UK, so anyone using a van needs to arrange insurance. Whether the van is for personal use, business use or both, insurance is a legal requirement. The policy may need to be in the name of a company, or if you operate as a sole trader it may need to be in your individual name. Either way, we can arrange cover for you with a reputable insurer.
What is covered by Van Insurance?
The exact cover depends on the insurer we deal with. Typically, van insurance is arranged on a comprehensive basis to cover damage to the van, as well as the compulsory cover for Third Party liability. Cover for tools and contents is excluded, but we can arrange this separately under a business insurance or contractors’ liability policy, depending on the nature of your business.
