I pay up to a grand for AVIVA for my little van. Its all bells and whistles and I thought I need it.
first they said I had no no claims record for a van hence the price. My 10 plus years on my car do not count.
Once I had my first year under the belt the rates went up because of the area? But I had no accident at all. Nada issues.
Then they said it was because I have my son on it because of his age 25 years old, but he drives the same type of van from his employer since many years (gasman), so has more experience than me and has had no accidents in his car either.
My problem is I cannot use the comparisons websites because the previous owner of my van changed the registration and the websites cannot recognise it and think its a car. So no quotes for me. Plus its automatic and the engine "special" as it cannot be found on the comparisons sites either. When calling insurers direct they faff about and cannot find it either. It clearly exists as I pay my road tax and got it registered in my name without problems.
It irks me when I hear people who are driving larger vans than me pay only £300 to £500 including indemnity and tools cover.
Anyone can recommend a van insurance broker as I am tired paying around £90 per month?
