  • Do I need van insurance?

    Your wheels are your livelihood, whether you're carrying precious cargo or the tools of the trade
    Dave Jenkins, journalist and van expert
  • What cover do I need?

    If you're delivering or moving someone else's cargo then you'll need carriage of goods for hire and reward cover. This is split into two distinct categories, haulage or courier
    Dave Jenkins, journalist and van expert
  • Advice if you have an accident in your van

    Be prepared - ensure you've always got a first aid kit plus pen and paper handy in your glove box. If you're driving a lot at night, a torch is a wise addition to your inventory, too
    Dave Jenkins, journalist and van expert
  • Advice if you have an accident in your van

    It's vital - not to mention a legal requirement - to stop and, having checked if anyone is hurt, call an ambulance and the police. Keep that phone out - take pictures of the scene from as many angles as is safely possible
    Dave Jenkins, journalist and van expert
  • Will a van accident affect no claims on my domestic policy?

    Not likely, but a driver is obliged to disclose any incidents, claims or losses to any insurer which they seek cover from as this allows the insurer to accurately rate the risk and prevents any issues come a claim or renewal
    Lynne Clark, claims controller at Eldon Insurance Services
  • Van driving tips

    I guess there is an unwritten rule, van drivers let van drivers out… At the end of the day, just be friendly. Be courteous to other road users and that's it, it's nice to be nice
    Dave Jenkins, journalist and van expert
  • How to keep your van safe

    External locks such as wheel nut locks and fuel cap locks will ensure your costly wheels and fuel stay in one piece, while door locks (including deadbolts, slam locks and Armaplate locks) are ideal if your job requires getting in and out of your van a lot

  • How to keep your van safe

    Consider bulkheads placed between the driver and the load of the vehicle to prevent thieves climbing over the seats and accessing your cargo… Vaults and safes are ideal storage units which can be removed easily

  • How to keep your van safe

    Advertising your logo and contact details on your van is likely to detract thieves from the vehicle, if not from its contents… A branded van is less likely to go missing and, should it be stolen, it could be located quicker than an unbranded vehicle

Did you know...?

  • To insure a pick-up you'll need van cover rather than a car policy
  • Research from the Association of Chief Police Officers Vehicle Crime Intelligence Service (AVCIS) in February 2011 found that the most frequently stolen vehicle in the UK was the Ford Transit

You can find out more about the differences between such products in our van insurance guides, where you'll also find the answers to frequently asked questions.

Our guides offer more information on key areas of van cover, including an introduction to the basics, a run-through of the way that quotes are calculated, a look at optional extras, security, modifications, no claims discounts, telematics and tips for saving money on your premiums.

There's also plenty to read on specialist areas such as whether you need business or private insurance, courier cover, young drivers, the running costs of a van against a car, short-term cover, breakdown policies and a guide to telling whether you need van or car insurance - a common area of difficulty for those with dual-purpose vehicles such as double cab pick-ups.
