Van insurance FAQs
Are my tools covered on my van insurance policy?
Not usually, no. A broker may be able to help you find an insurance provider that offers some cover, or you could buy a separate goods in transit policy.
This could protect your tools against loss, damage and theft while being transported from one place to another.
Can I transfer my no claims bonus discount from my car to my van?
Yes, you can transfer it, but you can only use your no claims bonus on one vehicle.
Do you need van insurance?
Yes, it’s a legal requirement to have insurance if you drive a van, in the same way that you need car insurance to drive a car.
Standard Van insurance usually covers vans weighing up to 3.5 tonnes so check the weight of your vehicle to make sure you buy the right insurance for it. Some places offer non-standard van policies, which cover vans up to 7.5 tonnes.
