Key aspects of your van insurance
For most people cost is the overriding factor in their decision on van insurance and we provide our quotes in detail with the lowest premium first.
In addition to the cost you also need to consider other aspects of each quote. It is very easy these days to look at a series of computer generated quotes and assume that the cover is the same under each policy and are equally suitable for your requirements.
What is the policy excess on a van insurance policy?
The excess will vary from quote to quote and you need to be aware of the different excesses that apply to each policy. The key areas to look for are;
- Fire and theft excess
- Accidental Damage Excess
- Windscreen Excess
- Audio Equipment and Satellite Navigation Excess
these can vary greatly from one insurer to another and there is often a trade off in premium that you will need to consider.
Does van insurance include windscreen cover as standard?
This is provided by most comprehensive policies and is an option of some third party and theft contracts or is available as a separate insurance policy if you require it. Check the details of this cover carefully, many policies will have no excess if the windscreen is repaired or replaced by an approved repairer and a significant one if they are not!
Why is it important to make sure that the business description under your van insurance policy is correct?
It is very important that your business description and occupation are correct on your insurance.
Whilst insurers work from an extensive list, it is not exhaustive and you should make sure that the trade correctly reflects your activities. Failure to notify the insurance company of your correct business description could lead to your policy be invalidated.
Why is it so important to have the correct class of use under your van insurance policy?
There are several types of vehicle use under a van insurance policy and once again this should be correct and adequately reflect the sue of your vehicle. For most businesses, the most common choices are carriage of own goods or carriage of goods for hire or reward. Other specialist classes exist, for instance motor trade and these will often require a different, specialist policy.
If you have the incorrect class of use attached to your van insurance policy your cover may be void in the event of a claim.
Why must you inform your insurance company if your van has any modifications made to the original specification?
Standard van insurance quotes are based upon the manufacturers specification of the original base vehicle, if the vehicle has been adapted or modified for specialist use you must make sure that your insurer is aware of this and that the policy is suitable for your requirements.
