Default Market trader van insurance.....help!!!

Hi folks putting this post up in desperation really,looking for any advice or help from other members or any of the insurance companies who advertise/ use this site as I'm struggling to get anywhere near a sensible quote from van insurance search engines.
I am a market trader running a 2014 T5 T28 swb 102,totally standard van (although I would like to put some wheels on at a later date)
I need fully comp insurance for social domestic etc and going to and from a place of work,i.e. Which ever market I'm working ( I only travel to work 3 times a week) I only cover 8000 miles per year.
I'm 47 years old with a full clean uk licence and over 20 years without a claim.
I don't wish to insure the goods in the vehicle just the van,I'm not keen on any excess but I can't believe the prices I'm being quoted,so far the best price I've had has been in excess of 600!!
Are other members having similar problems or is it just me as I'm a market trader??
My insurance is due in a couple of weeks so hopefully I have a bit of time to sort something out,many thanks.....

Have a word with Dan from A-Plan. I am insured with them and my cover includes trading at Events & Festivals. It sounds like your trading is a fair bit more frequent then mine, but not sure if there is a limit to number of events, so definately worth a call to him.
Can't recall if the vehicle cover includes goods in transit, but a lot of Market Trader public liability insurance policies include loss of goods as well as the liability cover anyway (I think mine does? I really need to check this )

Oh. They only insure modified vans, but that mod can be as simple as changing wheels, so you will be ok there long as you change SOMETHING!

Sorry to hear that mine is a lot lot less, but I live in the back of beyond, where 17 year olds only pay 600, not 6,000 so that is probably the major difference.
Are there any "Market Trader" forums or facebook groups around where someone in the same situation could suggest a suitable company?

Post codes affect the price of insurance a lot. Im in a good area but paying around the price you have quoted.
