Long wheelbase van insurance

Long wheelbase vans are the biggest you can get your hands on without driving a truck or an articulated lorry.

Common sights in the building industry; they’re massive and can fit loads of materials, goods and tools in the back.

What is a long wheelbase van?

There are two types of long wheelbase vans and, as the name suggests they’re long, but how long exactly?

The first type is a standard long wheelbase version; typically it’s 3.4 metres in length, 1.7 metres high and 1.7 metres wide.

Sitting just above it is the extra long wheelbase van; typically it’s 4.1 metres in length, 1.8 metres high and 1.7 metres wide.

How can I insure a long wheelbase van?

Long wheelbase vans come with the same insurance options as smaller vans and cars in the form of Comprehensive, Third Party Fire and Theft and Third Party Only cover.

But it gets a bit more complicated than that when it comes to insurance and that’s because of use.

Generally, long wheelbase vans aren’t the choice of the keen driver who enjoys a weekend jaunt along sun-bathed country roads. Instead they’re utility vehicles that serve an obvious purpose for businesses and companies.

If you use your long wheelbase van for any business purpose – even just commuting – then you need business van insurance.
