Nissan van insurance

Whether you’re using your Nissan van as a trader or just for your general day-to-day run-around, it’s important to consider what insurance policy will meet your needs. From couriers to painters, whatever line of work you’re in, finding the right insurance policy for your Nissan van could help you get a competitive quote. It could minimise the impact any theft or accident has on you or your business in the future.

What do you need to know about van insurance?

Van insurance premiums are calculated differently from regular car insurance policies. The Association of British Insurers (ABI) allocates insurance groups for standard cars, and insurers can then use these to indicate insurance costs. The ABI can also recommend insurance groups for certain vans and commercial vehicles. But insurers tend to calculate prices based on the specifications of the van itself, as well as on details about you and your driving history.

Nissan’s range of commercial vehicles includes everything from vans to flatbed trucks. Knowing what features of your vehicle will affect your insurance premium is an important first step. Many Nissans come with a further range of options, including engine size, seating capacity, safety features and much more, which many insurers will use to calculate insurance prices.

What affects the cost of Nissan van insurance?

Van insurance policy prices are influenced by a variety of things, including your circumstances, driving history and your vehicle. So they are difficult to predict. We’ve put together some of the key models and features in Nissan’s current commercial vehicle range. You could use these to consider what model might suit you and your business best, as well as how its stats and range of extras may affect your insurance premium.

Generally you can expect larger, heavier commercial vehicles with larger, more powerful engines, more seats or higher maximum payloads to have higher insurance premiums. This is why it is important to consider the cost of your van insurance before buying your business van.
