Things you need to know

  • We provide a courtesy vehicle for the duration of the repair when using one of our approved repairers.
  • You can have up to three named drivers on your van insurance policy.

To complete a quote you'll need to know the following:

  • The van registration number.
  • If for business use, the year the business that uses the van was established.
  • The months and year you got your driving license for the type of vehicle you're insuring - this can be found in section 10 on the back of your photocard license.
  • The current market value of the van including any racking, signage, or modifications - where possible we use an industry valuation service to show you how much we think the van is worth. Please review this and change as appropriate. If we're unable to find a evaluation, please tell us how much the van would be worth if you sold it toady or alternatively how much you're buying for it.
