Van Insurance explained

What is Van Insurance?

Vans are classed as commercial vehicles – and the type of van insurance you need depends on what you use your vehicle for. Whether you rely on your van for business or personal use, it’s still vital to protect it from the risk of theft or damage. Business use can simply mean dropping items off on your way to your normal place of work, so it makes sense to clarify the cover you need. The most important thing to remember is that if you are a van driver and drive on the public road, you are legally required to have to have adequate van insurance in place.

Why do you need Van Insurance?

Appropriate van insurance ensures that if your van is involved in an accident or is the target of crime, the costs associated with fixing or replacing your van, as well as any damage caused by your van in an accident, are all covered by your van insurance policy.

At YOUR Insurance, we take pride in offering insurance products that fit a range of circumstances. Whatever you use your van for, talk to our customer services team to find out the right policy for your van insurance needs.
