Cheap van insurance

By law you must have van insurance if you drive a van but that does not mean you have to pay criminally high prices, with the help of Apricot – your UK based van insurance broker. Apricot will compare van insurance quotes from top companies to help find you cheap van insurance, whether you want a basic policy to cover a third party in an accident or need specialist insurance because you use your van for certain jobs.

About van insurance

If you’re driving a van, you need insurance. Whether it’s for business use or purely personal (e.g. having a van to go surfing or camping), it’s a legal requirement to have third party cover in place at minimum.

Third party cover protects you if you injure someone or damage their property in using your van, or if your passengers get injured.

Third party fire and theft is the next up level of cover. This does the same as third party, paying out if you become liable for a third party injury or property damage. Third party fire and theft also means your van is protected from damage arising from fire or theft. It doesn’t, however, cover you if you for damage to your van in an accident or other incident.

Comprehensive cover, on the other hand, provides all the protection of third party fire and theft, but also pays out if your van is damaged in an accident or by crime and needs repair or replacement.

What are the types of “use”?

In addition to which type of cover you’ll require, you’ll also be asked about the intended use for the van.

Social domestic pleasure only. If you don’t commute in your van and don’t use it for business purposes, this might be the cheapest way to get quality van insurance.

Social domestic, pleasure and commuting. Self-explanatory: no business use but you also drive to work in your van sometimes.

Business for carriage of own goods. If, for example, you’re a tradesman and need to carry your tools or supplies, this is likely to be the best option for you.

Business use for carriage of goods for hire and reward. If you’re carrying goods for other people, for a fee, then this is the cover you’re likely to need.

Business use for haulage. This is typically for drivers who provide delivery of items over long distances.

If you’re still unsure what you need, you can call our friendly Northern Ireland team for help.
