Van Insurance

Specialist cover for vans and pick-ups

When your vans are off the road your business can quickly grind to a halt. The right van insurance is vital because accidents and theft do happen and you should only pay a fair price to protect your profits and your drivers.

We can offer cover that protects not only your van or pick-up, but the tools you need for the job as well. So, should anything happen, we can have you road-ready and back out to work as soon as possible.

And should your van be stolen or damaged beyond repair in an accident, we have you covered with the offer of a courtesy vehicle while a replacement is found.

Can I Drive a Van on My Car Insurance?

Some car insurance policies may offer cover for the use of a van but this is usually third-party insurance and may not fully cover your needs. With our specific van insurance, we cover you for the most likely incidents to happen when you’re running a business such as the theft of tools. In other words, it’s tailored to reduce the risks you might face.
