Questor insurance recently decided to launch the Van Hire Excess Insurance product alongside their car hire and motorhome hire excess products as many of their clients rent vans from time to time.
As with Questor Insurance’s great car hire excess insurance this product insures the excess on the van hire rental agreement up to £3,000 and includes cover for the tyres, windscreen and underbody.
It has been designed specifically for rentals up to 14 days however, this product is not intended for tradesman renting a replacement van.
Costing £5.99 per day, it is designed for the UK market only and covers clients permanently resident in the UK renting a van up to 3.5 metric tonnes for use in the UK only. Drivers must be aged between 24 and 64.
The van hire excess insurance policy is Underwritten by White Horse Insurance (Ireland) Limited through a facility operated and managed by Strategic Insurance Services Limited for Questor Insurance Services Ltd.
There are numerous reasons why people rent a van for a day or two, or even up to a couple of weeks. With a very active property rental market and a large proportion of those properties now being let unfurnished has meant people have to move their furniture from one location to another. For most people the cost of using a removal company will be too expensive so the easier and more cost effective option to hire a van.
The van hire companies, like car hire and motorhome hire companies will sell the renter an excess insurance policy, but is highly likely to be quite expensive and a product like Questor’s Van Hire excess insurance product will prove to be much better value.
jml Insurance websites have been promoting Questor Car Hire Excess insurance since September 2008. Car Hire Excess insurance currently costs from £2.49 per day or £39.99 per annum and this insurance is available to persons resident worldwide .
