    Small Fleet Policy

    Doe anyone on the forum have their van/ camper insured under a Small Fleet Policy (SFP)? I'm still awaiting delivery of my factory-build van (which will then go straight for a full camper conversion), but when I finally get my hands on it, we'll have the camper, 2 cars and a motorbike - and...

    Brentacre insurance

    Anyone Made A Claim? And if you did were you happy? Notwithstanding that making a claim is never a happy time. Doing my diligence before committing my money so am getting quotes for my conversion to camper. My standard van insurance won't touch it as soon as I start making changes:cautious...

    Which companies will insure my campervan in London?

    My policy through A-Plan finishes in March at the same time as I move house from the South Coast to London. Surprisingly, A-Plan tell me none of their companies will provide campervan insurance in any London postcodes. Anyone know whether I should have more luck with Brentacre/Adrian Flux etc?

    Help with how to value WIP conversion?

    Folks, any pointers for valuing the van for insurance purposes? We're up for renewal and things have changed significantly since it was bought as a panel van last year. Our insurer (Brentacre) will insure to an agreed value but we need to provide the value estimate which they either agree to...

    Shop Around for your insurance!

    I made the mistake of taking out a policy with Adrian Flux in the belief that I would get the very best deal from them because they “specialise” in camper van insurance. The policy was due to start effective from 1st Oct 2020 when the conversion will be complete. I foolishly didn’t even check...

    Direct Line

    Had our Kombi Highline insured by Direct Line for the past year. Gave us a great price and always been good when needed. Just had the van partially wrapped with our company logo so gave them a ring - no problem with having that done as you'd expect. But as we're thinking of modding the van...

    A Right Royal Pain In The Arse.

    So at the age of 65, I bought a van. I then ask Direct line about insurance and they just transferred over from my car until 17th Feb. I phoned up again to renew and to cut a very long story short, they shouldn’t have. If I modify the van, they can’t insure. CVD quote £550 with mods, £410...

    Good Morning; Could someone please clarify a fire regulation for me. I would like to know what the distance should be between a gas hob and an overhanging storage unit. My understanding is that more and more insurance companies are asking for this information. Many thanks
