Who Are We

The Van Insurer is one of the leading van insurance comparison sites in the UK and one of few that is dedicated solely to vans.

The company began after success in the motorbike insurance comparison game with The Bike Insurer.

Because of our success with two wheels we asked ourselves if we could branch out and dominate other markets as we had done for motorbikes.

Unequivocally the answer was yes we could, so The Van Insurer was born and since then we’ve pushed our way to the front of the van insurance market.

Our aim is to provide van drivers with the cheapest insurance quotes in the UK and we compare quotes from 48 insurance brokers.

We also want to do it quickly and with minimal fuss and that is why we’ve built the most comprehensive and straightforward insurance comparison platform in the UK – and why van drivers keep coming back to us.

The Van Insurer is administered and managed by Vast Visibility LTD and Software Development Partnership (SDP), and it’s their teams that make The Van Insurer what it is.

Here are just some of the team from Vast who manage The Van Insurer.

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.

The Rest of the Motley crew, Making your insurance dreams come true

Without a comprehensive and talented team behind The Van Insurer, we wouldn’t be able to provide the cheapest and best insurance quotes across our different products.

And through Vast Visibility and SDP we have two impressive groups that help us administer all of our sites.

From developers and testers to creatives and designers, broker relationship teams to sales and marketing staff, Vast and SDP provide The Van Insurer with a comprehensive set of skilled workers.
