What is commercial van insurance?
Commercial van insurance is specifically for vans that are used for business purposes. It provides coverage for accidents, theft, and damage to the van. From painters and decorators to furniture removal and couriers, there is a myriad of professions that require van insurance.
Your van policy premium is determined by factors such as the type of van, its usage, and your driving experience. While van insurance can seem a bit pricier if you’re used to car insurance premiums, it is a necessity that will ensure your vehicle has cover if the unexpected occurs.
With vans being larger, on the road for longer periods of time and may rack up a higher mileage, the risks posed are greater. We have plenty of different van insurance policies for businesses to choose from to give you full control over the coverage you need.
