What information do I need to get a quote?
Personal Details: Information including your name, date of birth, occupation and address
Transit Details: If you know the reg of your transit van, that’s great; if not, you can find the exact model using the dropdown forms. You also do not need to own the vehicle yet, which is helpful if you are seeing how much it would cost to insure a transit van before you purchase one.
Driving History: details of any claims or convictions & driving experience.
Cover Type & Usage: your estimated annual mileage, where you will keep your vehicle and what you will use the vehicle for.
Can I get insurance for commercial use of my Transit van?
Yes, you can see quotes for personal use, business use for the carriage of your own goods (for example, if you are going to keep tools in the van) or business use for the carriage of other people’s goods (where you’ll need hire & reward insurance as part of your policy).
How can I lower the cost of my Ford Transit van?
Comparing quotes will go a long way to helping you find van insurance for your Transit as you can see prices from multiple insurance providers in one place.
As well as this, you may make extra savings with the below tips:
- Black box: choosing a van insurance policy with a black box can lower the cost of your insurance. A black box will generate data about your Transit and how you drive it, which helps your insurance provider determine how much of a risk you are to insure.
- Parking: if possible, parking your van off the road overnight can help reduce your premiums; if you keep your Transit in a car port or private driveway, it’s statistically less likely to be a victim of theft/vandalism or an accident.
- Modifications: avoid buying a Ford Transit with modifications where possible, as they can increase the cost of your van insurance.
- Cover type: third party only cover is not necessarily the cheapest, so make sure you look at quotes for third party, fire & theft and fully comprehensive insurance as you may be able to reduce your insurance costs whilst also adding extra cover.
Can I add more than one driver to my policy?
Yes, you can. If you want up to 4 other drivers to be able to get behind the wheel of your transit van legally, then you can get a quote from this page. However, if you want to allow anyone to drive your van, check out our guide on any driver van insurance, where you can receive specialist quotes.
