What is Van Insurance?

Van Insurance covers you if you use your van or pick-up for work. For example, to carry your goods, tools, or equipment to different locations during your working day.

Churchill offers you two levels of cover for Van Insurance. 

Comprehensive

This covers you if your van is:

  • Stolen
  • Damaged by fire
  • Accidentally or deliberately damaged

You're also covered for claims made by other people for bodily injury, with no limit, or damage to their property, up to £2 million.

Windscreen cover is also included.

Third Party Fire and Theft

This covers you if other people claim against you for injury or damage to their car or property.

It also covers your van for theft, attempted theft and fire damage.
