What’s the purpose of Impound Release Insurance?
The purpose of an Impound Release policy is to allow the vehicle owner to recover a vehicle from a Police or local authority impound following its seizure. In many cases, the types of clients that have had vehicles impounded represent a higher risk to insurers, so the cover offered by the impound product is intentionally set as the minimum cover required to meet the requirements of the impound, to release the vehicle to its owner.
