What should I know about pickup truck insurance?

The right insurance policy for your pickup truck is going to depend on a range of things, including the truck type, its usual cargo and its daily use. Because there are so many different kinds of pickup available, and they are used for such a wide range of different things, it’s important to investigate thoroughly what type of policy is going to provide the best cover for you.

Because of their wide range of uses and their growing popularity in the UK, many insurers are now offering policies designed specifically for pickup trucks. But how can you determine what is the best policy for you?

 Commercial insurance policy

  • If you use your pickup truck in connection with your business, you’ll need to take out a commercial insurance policy
  • Insurers will likely treat your pickup truck in the same way as a van of similar size, offering a similar policy, price and level of cover
  • This type of policy could be extended to cover carrying hazardous goods, specialist tools and materials, or equipment and modifications like winches and snorkels

 Private use policy

  • Many insurers will not offer private insurance policies for pickup vehicles over a certain size e.g. the Toyota Hilux, automatically classing them as LCV's (Light Commercial Vehicles)
  • If you’re unsure about the level of cover you need, you can find out more using our guide to insurance classes-of-use

Getting the right policy for your pickup truck will make sure you get the best protection possible, where and when you need it. You might also want to look into goods in transit or courier insurance, in case they offer better protection for your personal risks, and get the policy and price tailored to your specific needs.
