Types of cover

Racks

Third Party Only

This is the lowest level of cover for van insurance, it only provides cover for third party injury or damage to their vehicle’s.

Optional extras

Trailers

Trailers

Trailers are handy and they are a really popular piece of equipment for our van customers. They do however require extra insurance cover, so when taking out your van insurance it is important you advise us if you are likely to be using trailers. We will then ensure you have the adequate insurance in place.

Racks

Racks/Shelving

Some vans feature pretty expensive racks and shelving, so it is important to let us know if you would like these to be covered in the event they become damaged, as they can be costly to repair/replace.

Signage

Signage

Whilst many van customers opt to have no signage on their vehicles for security reasons, for others their signage is an extremely important part of their business as it helps market their products and services. Dependant on how elaborate your signage is, you may want to include this in your van insurance policy should you need to repair it if damaged.

GAP

If you’re buying your van on finance or through a lease agreement, you’ll be particularly interested in our GAP insurance cover.

It’s a well-known fact, that most vehicles lose their value the minute they leave the dealership and if the unexpected happens you will only receive the current market value at that time, leaving you significantly out of pocket. GAP ensure that you will be paid the difference.

Excess Insurance

An excess is a great way of reducing the cost of your insurance premium, however, claims often happen at the most inappropriate times when we don’t always have the funds in our account to cover the excess.

An Excess Insurance policy will reimburse the excess you may have paid provided the claim is more than the total policy excess at the time of the incident and is reported within a 31 day period to the insurer.This is a really clever addition to your insurance and we’re one of the few brokers who offer it in Northern Ireland.

For example, say you have an excess of £500 on your policy – if you have an accident and it costs more than this to fix, then you can claim back that £500, so you aren’t out of pocket.

What is included*?

•Only one claim can be made per policy, another policy can be purchased at any time.

• Amount of claim under the Excess Protect policy must not exceed the value of the total excess of the main policy.

• Claims must be reported within 14 days of the settlement of the claim to which the policy relates

• Windscreen excesses are excluded for all motor policies.

*Exclusions and Terms and Conditions apply. It’s important to note that if the claim is your fault, you cannot reclaim your excess.

Tool Cover

Boosting your policy to include tool cover* will enable you to replace your tools and equipment if they are lost or stolen, helping you get back to work as fast as possible.

*Terms and Conditions apply.

Liability

It is vital to ensure you have the right level of liability cover in place for you and your business adding that extra layer of business protection in the unfortunate event of injury to an employee, a third party or damage to their property.
