Getting the best domestic van insurance deal
It’s easy to be confused by the many insurance cover providers claiming to have the best deals.
Make the right choice
The best way of getting the best domestic van insurance cover is by shopping around for the most competitive rates. Also, buy insurance from a reputable company. A low cost policy from a minor insurer may seem tempting but in tough economical times, small insurance companies face as much risk as any other enterprise.
It is important to maximize the value for money aspect of your domestic. Do not compromise on the cover needed just to reduce the premium costs. Do not pay for optional extras unless they are necessary to you. Your insurance policy should be tailored as much to your personal needs as much as possible thereby you are getting full worth of what you are paying for. There are also steps you can take to reduce the amount of your premiums such as parking your van in a secure area. Even your driveway is considered more secure than the street.
Beat the quote
Making price comparisons of various insurance companies is vital. If you are renewing, let your current provider know you are looking around – if they want your business badly enough they will match or undercut other quotes you obtain. Make sure their offer is equivalent to the best you other quotes you find and there is a genuine value for money offer. Additional extras that you don’t need, do not convert to monetary savings in real terms. New customer discounts can be very attractive but read the terms and conditions – if the policy is not fully suitable, the resultant cost saving may prove worthless.
Get it online
The proliferation of online comparison and sales sites has made getting all kinds of insurance so much easier but there are still points to remember:
Some very large UK insurance household names do not allow their policies on comparison websites so if you’re only happy with big name cover you’ll need to visit their sites directly.
The ease of use of the web sites means it is easy to fall into the trap of not reading the policy properly and you could end up with the wrong cover.
Remember, if you’re looking for, specify so, as the terms will be different than intended for commercial use.
Lastly, if a deal seems too good to be true – it might well be so, so read the terms even more carefully.
