I got an online quote from Just Campers yesterday for a van that I’m thinking of buying, they quoted £1400 :oops:
My current car is insured with LV so I gave them a call and asked them for a mult-car quote with my 2018 Tiguan 240 R-Line. They came back with an extra £197. :p

Cheers for all the info on here. I’m literally about to go and pick my first ever van up, a 2018 panel van which I will slowly be converting but nowt too serious as it’ll also be my everyday vehicle. I have 5 days complimentary insurance but was worried what to do after that. Obviously won’t be using it anytime soon for trips away until lockdown properly eases though.
I‘m a key worker and currently without a vehicle so I have bought it online without seeing it in the flesh or driving it! I have 14 days to change my mind if I don’t want it though.

Yep Correct your van is a commercial vehicle even for just social use but Admiral will insure it for that i would think. they have just sorted mine. mines not used for work but my daily commute and social domestic use.

LV gave me a high quote £540 for my panel van with not adding eurocover screen or NCB

Admiral were by far the cheapest for me. T6 LWB lined with leisure electrics and R&R bed. Admiral happy to class as partial conversion so all mods covered.
Just remember as a commercial vehicle you dont get driving other cars extension and cant get it added.

It really is a mine field. I phoned my insurance co to add mods and they said they couldn't insure me. Left me with looking for alternative.

Aplan was nearly £500 which was with mods added but everything else on top such as legal cover.

Did online quote with LV, declared the mods, spoke to a human as well to confirm and that was £70 quid cheaper with legal, protected NCD, and an online discount .works out £39 per month. Still a lot, but has to be done.

I used Brent Acre who were brilliant. Really know about the vehicles and very switched on, I got a quote from somewhere else which was slightly cheaper but I went with Brent Acre because of their knowledge and service
