If you are a van owner you are likely to be running your own business and may well be a sole trader operating the one vehicle. Any savings in business expenditure or containment of costs that you can make in the present financial climate would no doubt be welcomed.
So, let’s look at a potential way of containing or reducing the cost of your van insurance.
The security of your van will impact on the van insurance premiums you are paying. For example, if you park your van on the street outside your house it is likely to cost you more to insure it than if it was on your drive or cheaper still if put in your garage over-night or in a locked secure compound. This is quite simply because the van insurance provider knows that statistically there is less chance of your van being stolen if it is locked away in your garage, therefore, their risk would be lower.
So, if it means having a good clear out of your garage, to be able to drive the van into it then, so be it. Having done that you could then go on the Internet to try to get some cheap online van insurance quotes.
However, you may prefer to delay doing those van insurance quotes until you have explored the cost of fitting a tracking device, alarm and/or immobiliser to your van as, by fitting them, may result in you paying less for your van insurance. The reason for this is of course a thief is less likely to steal your vehicle if one of these is fitted and, therefore, the risk to the van insurer is lower. You also need to consider the inconvenience of obtaining a temporary replacement van if yours were stolen and the impact this may have on your livelihood.
So, consider making your van more secure before looking for cheap, online van insurance quotes.
