As a van driver you’re legally obliged to have a van insurance policy in place to insure against the possibility that you may injure or cause damage to another person or their property.
The only time that you’re not required to have van insurance is when you have declared the vehicle as off the road with a Statutory Off Road Notice (SORN). Anyone caught driving without van insurance could face a fine or even a driving ban.
The level of cover that you will require depends on your needs and also how much you are willing to pay.
At Staveley Head there are two levels of van insurance to choose: Comprehensive and third party, fire and theft.
Comprehensive: This does tend to be the most expensive level of cover as it offers the most protection. However it will offer protection for third party liability, fire and theft and will also cover your van should it be lost or damaged in an accident.
Third party, fire and theft: Covers your van in the event of it being damaged in a fire or stolen.
This level of insurance will cover you if you’re involved in an accident where you are at fault. You’ll be insured for the damage that you’ve caused to another person’s vehicle or property, or if you’ve injured a third-party or a passenger as a result.
If you’re using your vehicle for delivering goods on a ‘hire and reward’ basis you may need to take out courier insurance.
