Last week Virgin Media revealed their brand new cohort of fun, pop-culture inspired vans! Van insurance news reports...
Van dealers have reported a drop in van sales in all areas of the UK outside of London. With fewer people buying new vans and more, less dependable, old vans out on the roads could cheaper van insurance be out of the question?
For the first time in 17 months there has been a decline in the number of van sales. The figures for July show a 0.8% decrease in the number of van registrations, down to 17,162. It is thought the figures represent an uncertain period for the economy.
A new trend in vehicle crime has recently emerged which all motorists, especially van insurance customers who do most of their driving in busy city centres, should be aware of. Police and van insurance companies have noticed a sharp rise in the amount of number plate thefts occurring in recent months, particularly in areas where congestion charges exist.
Data collected by MIB Data Solutions shows that many small and medium sized companies are still opting to buy their company vehicles outright rather than entering into leasing deals.
A man who had his van seized incorrectly by police has claimed “white van men don‘t stand a chance”. The seizure was a result of a police crackdown on scrap metal thieves after a recent increase in this type of crime.
Driving anywhere can be frustrating at times. Traffic, poor drivers, and a lack of courtesy and patience can all lead to a sense of frustration, and it seems, according to recent research, we Brits lose our tempers more readily than our European counterparts.
The wealth of information and competition online has led to a more informed van insurance customer than ever before. Recent research carried out by a leading van insurer has shown that just 14% of van insurance customers will buy their policy based on price alone.
According to statistics from the ACPO Vehicle Crime Intelligence Service (AVCIS), for the first quarter of 2011 the Transit van was the most stolen vehicle of any in the UK. This is prompting many van insurance customers to check their policies are up-to-date to make sure they can make a claim if the same should happen to them.
