Specialist Commercial Vehicle Insurance
Not only is your business unique but your commercial vehicles are often moulded to best suit the service you provide to your customers. It's likely that you need a bespoke policy to cover your commercially modified vehicles that do not comply with standard requirements.
Whether your modified motors are non-road registered, for transportation, marketing or catering, we are confident that we can achieve suitable cover for you without breaking the bank. Our team are on hand to discuss the options available to safeguard your vehicles.
Non-Standard Vehicle Insurance
A modified commercial vehicle can be anything diverse that has been converted from its original form or built for a specific purpose to help fulfill a business service. For example, a white line-marking road vehicle, digger or mobile cinema will be non-standard to be able to perform a certain set of required tasks.
Higher Risks Secured
Inherently, modified vehicles that have been built to serve a distinct purpose often need enhanced levels of cover over standard vehicles, especially if they are used to transport high risk items. Luckily, our insurers specialise in this area and look to place cover for all types of custom vehicles required for business use.
