    insurance ......
    Brand new £32k S3 fully comp with Stg 1 declared.....£375
    4 year old van worth £7k at a push !...................... £1580 !!

    No wonder people dont want to start businesses or insure their motors

    I know, it's crazy. I was trying to get insured on my dad's N-reg Vauxhall Combo 1.7d, to use for going to the gym, and i was getting quotes of treble what my dad was paying.

    Hi there, did you manage to get sorted in the end? My brother-in-law just renewed hi insurance, he went with Van insurance | Cheap commercial van quotes He said that they were pretty cheap :) I hope this helps Andy

    You guys need to shop around! I pay no way near that on my van (vivaro)! Although it's a bit more because it's a commercial insurance so the cover is slightly different as there is more risk.

    Direct line smashs everyone hands down for me, think I pay around the £600 mark, same as my s3.
