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.

impounded Van insurance quotesFor 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? 

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.
