Impound Car Insurance

Impound car insurance that's worth seizing.

If your vehicle has been seized, you must provide evidence that it is insured before it will be released. Impound insurance, also known as seized car insurance, can help reunite you with your vehicle.

It is reported that hundreds of thousands of vehicles are clamped or impounded in the UK every year. If yours is among them you’ll know it’s more than just an inconvenience. It’s costly.

Even if you have insurance in place when your vehicle is seized, it may not cover you for its release from an impound. Most insurers will also not then provide you with the cover you need by law for the authorities to return your vehicle to you.

What’s more, you have just seven days to reclaim your vehicle from the pound. Fail to do that within 14 days and your vehicle will either be sold or destroyed.

This is when impound insurance can come to your rescue.

Benefits the specially designed impound insurance we offer include:

  • Cover for seizures under Section 165a of the Road Traffic Act
  • Social, Domestic & Pleasure (SDP) use
  • Commuting
  • Carriage of own goods
  • Car sharing covered

Impound insurance cover is available to drivers aged 21-68 years, subject to meeting underwriting conditions. Certain occupations excluded – please ask for details.  

Swiftly arranged temporary insurance for cars and vans
Third party only impound insurance – it’s all you need to get your vehicle released

Very professional approach by Joe who took my call. I was concerned over an email I’d had inviting me to click on a link. He understood and we sorted everything out. Good people for customer service which is sadly lacking these days by other companies. Will use Principal again. Thanks
