Impounded Van Insurance

Impounded van insurance that's worth seizing!

Your van may be a lifeline, so if it’s seized you need get it released as quickly as possible. Impounded van insurance could come to your rescue.

For many owners, their vans are more than just a vehicle. Your van could be vital for your work. You might rely on it to pursue a life-affirming hobby.

So what if it becomes a statistic, one of hundreds of thousands of vehicles reportedly clamped or impounded in the UK every year? 

Specialist short-term cover

It can be quite a headache. Even if it’s insured, you may not be covered for its release – and, even if your insurer is willing to extend your cover, they may demand a sizeable premium. That can be problem because, if it’s been seized, you must prove you have insurance in place before it will be released.

You need act quickly too. You have just seven days to reclaim your vehicle and, if you fail to do so within 14, it could be sold or destroyed.

This is where impounded van insurance can help. Also known as seized van insurance, it offers specialist short-term cover. This is designed to ensure you can satisfy the legal obligation to have at least 30 days road insurance in place to secure your van’s release.


Benefits the impounded van insurance we arrange offers include:

  • 30 day cover to meet legal minimum required for release
  • Cover for seizures under Section 165a of the Road Traffic Act
  • Carriage of own goods business van insurance
  • Social, Domestic & Pleasure (SDP) use
  • Commuting

  • Third party only impounded van insurance – all the cover you need to secure vehicle release

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
