Why compare business van insurance?

At we understand that as an owner you’ll want cheap insurance at the right level of cover because making the wrong choice may negatively affect your business and cost you money.

The only time you’re not required to have insurance is if the vehicle is registered as ‘off road’ with a Statutory Off-Road Notice (SORN). Under 2011's Continuous Insurance Enforcement Act. You could face a significant fine if you don't have the right insurance. It is no longer allowed to insure your van for only part of the year. Exceptions to the new CIE (Continuous Insurance Enforcement) legislation are if the vehicle is in-between registered owners or if it has been scrapped, recorded as sold or stolen and not recovered. The CIE regulations make it an offence to be the registered keeper of a vehicle which may not be covered by insurance following a check against the Motor Insurance Database (MID). This can still be applicable even if the vehicle is not driven on the road.
