  • I’m getting quotes of about £1000 for my insurance for my T5, I’m not going to be using it for business but I will use it for commuting .

    Who is generally cheap?

    My Trafic is less than half that! Currently with NFU.

    Budget Insurance for me, cheap as…

    The majority of the market are geared to cover vans with business use and as such that’s where the cheaper rates/competition is.

    Perhaps consider insuring for business use and SDP?

    NFU were good for my transit with business cover, but the best was Brentacre – they’re custom car insurers, but are trying to get into the van market a bit more, and are looking to the MTB market for this – you never know, you might get a good deal.

    Very friendly people on the phone, no long call queues, they’re happy for you to make any mods (no charge for me if i add windows/change wheels etc, only if i change the bhp)

    thoroughly recommended.

    I tried Brentacre and the quote was less than NFU bit there was something about the policy (that currently escapes me) that ruled it out for me. I’ll ponder…..

    I found Budget cheapest and they mirrored my No claims discount on my other car.

    £204 to insure my much modified 2004 Transit, including all the extras: declared value, legal, protected NCD etc. SDP & commuting, no business cover. That’s with Adrian Flux.
    .
    I’m 32, 7yrs NCD, clean licence, good postcode, 8,000mile limit, parked on driveway, all things they like. OP, we could do with a little more info before deciding if £1,000 is reasonable.

    Cheers all,

    The quote isn’t too bad, but I’m 28, good postcode, parked on drive, clean license, but i dont have any no claims because it is on my car.

    Ah- you’re keeping the car too?

    Yes keeping the car, and before the car I had a company car but that was 2 1/2 years ago so I can’t use that no claims either.

    Is it a panel T5? That will put you on a commercial policy :-/
    Rear seats “should” get you on a standard policy as an estate car.
    Be careful with the engine though – as an example, my Trafic Crew LWB Quickshift has to go on a commercial policy becasue it is the 2.5L – the 1.9L is classed as an estate car and can go on any normal car policy 👿

    £1,000 for a T5! I’m only paying just under £600 for my silly red Sportline.

    Try NFU, they’re who I’m with and they’re nice to deal with to boot.

    £250 a year fully comp for my Toyota Hiace through Direct line, though I am an older git with full NCB and live in a lower risk postcode area I think

    As I said try Budget, they mirrored my NCD that’s currently being used on my other car ,may not be the cheapest for you but worth trying a online quote to see what it may cost you.

    I insure mine with brentacre as well, only downside is I didn’t have the driving other cars option on my policy. They were cheaper than all the others I tried.

    Pretty much non-existant on vans. I didn’t get it when mine was still a modified van, it’s now even more modified and so classed as a camper and I’ve got it back.

    Brentacre for me.

    Look on the insurance threads over on the t5 Form for info on Adrain Flux, seem to cancel policies after taking the money due to technicalities and keeping about £150.

    I ended up with A Plan after a few recommendations on the T5 forum for my Caravelle. 420 fully comp, 15k miles (3 k business) for me & the wife.

    Check out the t5forum – but the regular guys have been quoted with one exception

    Give Greenlight a call – I use them for my modded t5 – and they are excellent to deal wiith
    Having no separate no claims may be a challenge – but Neil there has dealt with lots of variety in insurance requests
