What do I need for my Van Insurance Cover?
This is determined by what exactly your van will be used for and as such we can again tailor a product around each individual customers needs but how you are carrying your goods determine what lorry insurance cover you will require:
* Social Domestic and Pleasure Insurance – usually for personal use only and are generally used for people who have hobbies and need something larger than a car.
* Carriage of Own Goods Insurance – for the carriage of your business goods only and a typical example is a Groundworker, Scaffolder etc.
* Courier (Carriage of Goods For Hire and Reward) – this cover will be required if you are charging to deliver someone else’s goods
Van Insurance follows the traditional types of cover of Comprehensive, Third Party Fire and Theft and Third Party Only. All insurance policies will carry an excess – the first part of any insurance claim which you are responsible for. Typically the excess is £500 however under many circumstances this can be reduced if necessary with an extra premium being paid.
Windscreen cover is usually available on Van Insurance Policies but only on a Comprehensive basis you can request this to be added to your policy but may be subject to excess and limitation of cover.

Who is able to drive my Van?

UK Van Insurance is the traditional contract but over the last decade or so it is becoming more regular that European use is required to deliver to multinational customers but also to go on holidays abroad with the need to carry more luggage.
