Who Are We

From small and humble beginnings in 2006, we created and set up the world’s first dedicated comparison site solely for those who needed some cheap bike insurance. As bikers ourselves, we were determined to bring the best range of insurance products known to man to our fellow bike enthusiasts. A few years and five million quotes later, we had a revelation; if it worked for bikes, why not vans? And hey presto, The Van Insurer was born!

The Van Insurer is an insurance comparison site dedicated completely to all you lovely van users. Whether you’re a minibus driver, a fleet owner, or simply drive a van for personal use we’re here to give you the best insurance quote possible – after all, we wouldn’t want you to miss out!

As a business, we’re serious about van insurance so we always endeavour to do our best for our customers and their insurance requirements. We guarantee to bring you the cheapest van insurance quote possible from over 30 of the UK’s top brokers and we’re always monitoring and shaping our business to bring you the best service we possibly can.

And here we have written some kind (after all they did have to approve them) words about just some of those people who make that happen!

The Van Insurer is administered by Vast Visibility Ltd a company registered in England and Wales. Registered number: 5866769. Registered office: Queen Anne House, Queen Anne Street, Southport PR8 1EH.
