4x4 insurance

Whether yours is a Chelsea tractor, a hard working Land Rover or you've got your hands on a sports car like the Porsche Carrera 911 4s, you'll want to make sure you're insured.

If you have a pickup and are looking for insurance, you'll need to use our van insurance process. This is because generally 4x4s are classified as cars and pickup trucks are not due to their longer wheel base and the fact they often exceed 3.5 tonnes.

What can I do with a 4x4?

  • They're great for towing - whether that's a caravan for your summer holidays, a boat to hit the water in or a trailer to take rubbish to the tip
  • With the UK experiencing an extreme range of weather such as flooding and snowfall, a 4x4 can take it all in its stride and keep you mobile
  • If you fancy exploring the great outdoors, they're great for covering rough, wet and soft terrain whilst you stay comfy in the drivers seat

What should I know about 4x4's?

  • With more mechanical parts involved in driving an off-road car, the reliability and potential break down risk is worse than standard cars
  • Because they are often larger and heavier, their fuel efficiency can suffer
