Impound Van Insurance

What is Impound Van Insurance

If your van is your only source of living and it gets impounded by the police, it can be a huge discomfort in your life. Whatever the reason is that your van has been impounded, you have to get it out of an impound as early as possible.

There are a few things you should do to release your van, and one of those is to ensure the vehicle has insurance coverage. Without it, the police pound will refuse to release your van even if you have everything else.

However, getting insurance for impounded vehicles can be tough. Many insurance brokers will not provide insurance for a van that is in an impound. With specialist impound van insurance from Release my vehicle, you can get the cover that will provide you with what you need to get your van back on the road.

This type of policy is particularly designed to allow you to retrieve your van quickly without much fuss. The minimum level of cover is 30 days, so that is the same as what you will get from impound van insurance.

 If you want to get your van back quickly, you will be happy to know that you can have cover in place quickly and we have made arranging simple as possible.

Why does your van impound?

There can be many reasons why police and other authorities decided to impound your van, some of the most common are:

  • The van is being driven without an insurance
  • It is driven by someone without a valid driving license
  • The van is involved in a crime
  • The van is being reported stolen
  • It was parked illegally
  • It was being driven in a dangerous manner that is causing obstruction

If you are the registered owner of the van, the authorities will make effort to call you once the van has been taken.

What do you need to get your van out of an impound?

Without specialist impound insurance, your van will not be going anywhere. You may well have a yearly policy already, but there is a chance that your current policy does not cover you for an impound. Or there is a chance that you do not have insurance at all, it could be the reason why it was impounded. It does not matter in either case, you just have to get insurance in place quickly.

You could pay to take out a yearly impound insurance policy, but this could be very expensive, at a time when you are already having to pay out other charges just to get your van back. Therefore, a temporary insurance policy comes.

But you just cannot take out standard temporary cover. That is because the time limit of one of those insurance policies is set at 28 days, whereas you will need to have 30 days of insurance to retrieve your van.

What documents do you need to retrieve your van?

Arranging 30 days of insurance is not the only thing you will be needed to provide or arrange to get your van back. You will need the following:

  • Proof of your ID
  • Driving license
  • Insurance certificate
  • Proof that you are the registered owner of the vehicle
  • A valid MOT certificate

How long will it take?

You don’t have long to retrieve your van if it’s been impounded by the police, so you will need to get everything in place as quickly as possible. You have just 14 working days to reclaim the van, and the longer you leave it, the more you will have to pay.

If you are unable to collect your van within the given time or fail to present the insurance documentation within 14 days, the van will be thrown away or auctioned.
