Comparing insurance for your pickup van
Pickups are great, you can use them for business and then at the weekend you get chance to play with the family! So what would you do if something happened to your faithful pickup and you didn't have adequate van insurance?
Read on to find out more about accurately insuring your open-backed beauty.
Insuring your pick up for business
Like a flatbed and tipper, making sure your pickup is covered correctly is pretty important. If you use it for business purposes, even if it’s irregularly, then you'll need to add 'Business Use' to your van insurance. It might increase your premium a bit but it's worth it – failing to inform your provider could invalidate any claim you make.
Making sure you have the right cover
You’ll also need to decide what level of cover you want. By law you'll need at least third party cover, which would pay for the damage that you cause to someone else’s property and any injury they receive in an accident, but nothing to repair the damage to your pickup van. If you do want your van covered then a fully comprehensive policy will give you that higher level of cover. The insurance premiums for fully comprehensive are not always more expensive than the third party only options, so make sure you weigh up your needs carefully and get the best cover for you.
Once you’ve picked the level of cover, you might also want to go for van breakdown cover. No one wants to be stuck at the side of the road, especially when you have a job to get to. Make sure you’re covered so you can get back to work in no time.
