Builders’ van insurance

Every builder knows the importance of their van to their business without it, it would be almost impossible to work.

It’s the thing that gets you not just from A to B, but your tools, supplies and other members of staff there too.

It’s also your mobile advertisement and for many others, it’s their mode of transport socially too.

That’s why getting the right van insurance is so important for builders because without it, work stops.

Why is van insurance so important for a builder?

Van insurance is a legal requirement in the UK and if you’re a builder using your van for work, a business policy is essential to.

Aside from the legal angle, getting the right level of cover can also save you time, money and stress if you need to make a claim.

In the worst case scenario, if your van was out of action and you need to make a claim, it can help you get back into work sooner rather than later, saving you money in the long run.
