Hi all,

Was just wondering if anyone has had a similar trouble to me with finding insurance. I have a LWB t4 with side windows. I have been insured with tesco for the last five years with my old car then for the last two with the van. I changed to direct line in April and had no problems with them and declared everything with the van. However last saturday after insuring the girlfriend they wanted to check if I still had windows in the van and then withdrew my insurance as now windows count as a modification (apparently they didn't in April). No problem, back to tesco: nope they too now have the same policy and won't insure me until I make it to age 25. There must be some other owners who have the same issues. It seems to me this insurance business is a bit hit and miss.

Would contacting the DVLA and changing the body type make this a standard van?

Thanks
Adam

Thanks for the help guys. Went with HIC in the end though. Only a bit more than my direct line policy and they're cool with any modifications I decide to make. Plus they do a call back thing if you go online so you don't even have to pay for the phone call.

Hi there,

You should check out www.thevaninsurer.co.uk - they're a van specialist, and don't outsource like Tesco so shouldn't get the same problems as you did with them. It means they can offer the best policies. They also guarantee the cheapest quote...

Best,

H.
