Why insurance for your business vehicle is important

For over 40 years Islands has provided expert insurance advice to Islanders and businesses alike, ensuring that the things that matter to you are covered. We are able to offer flexible van insurance policies whether you are using the vehicle to commute back and forth to work, transporting your family around at weekends or for your business.

At Islands, delivering the higher standard of service and comprehensive benefits that are designed with our customers in mind is what drives us. We understand occasionally your vehicle will be used off island, so we have incorporated European Breakdown Cover for vehicles under 3.5tonnes as standard. Your loyalty to us matters, so we are proud to include a No Claims Bonus protection and a 24-hour helpline for our customers as well.

24-Hour Helpline

We include free help and assistance, 24 hours a day, through our free 24-hour emergency helpline.

Optional benefits

Our van insurance is ideal for tradesmen and businesses that use their vehicles as tools which can lead to gaps in coverage due to grey areas in how the vehicle is used. At Islands, we understand this gap which is why we offer a greater level of protection in our optional benefits package. Some of these extra benefits allow you to receive a discount for multi-vehicle and restricted drivers, coverage for damage to underground services when using the vehicle as a tool, and coverage for your trailer when it’s not attached to your vehicle.

Our optional benefits offer a greater level of protection for your business vehicle. 

Restricted driving discounts

We can give up to 15% discount if you restrict the drivers on your vehicle.

Tools of trade use

We can cover you for damage to underground services when using your vehicle as a tool and include fitted machinery (i.e. hi-abs etc.).

Trailer cover

We can cover your trailer when not attached to your vehicle. Contact one of our brokers for more details.

Multi-vehicle discounts

Additional discounts can apply if you have more than one vehicle.
