5 Reasons to Insure Another Driver with Your Van Rental

Why Should You Insure Additional Drivers with A Van Hire?

If you are renting a moving truck, consider insuring additional drivers with your van hire. Accidents can occur at any time, especially when you are in a rush, have a lot on your mind or are tired and stressed. Moving house includes all! Added to this is the challenge of driving a vehicle that you are unfamiliar with, especially if you decide a rent a van. In our experience, it is advisable to be prepared. Even experienced drivers have had mishaps when driving a rental truck or van. Whether it is a slight bumper-tip or a crash, it will cost you. Check out our economical driver insurance.

Why Insuring Additional Drivers with a Van Rental Company Makes Sense

Customers often ask us why they should insure additional drivers with our van hire company rather than their current insurance provider. Here are 5 reasons we know will make a huge difference to your move, when you rent a van.
  • It is Easier: There are no phone calls to make or delays caused by the back and forth with questions from insurance providers. Van rental companies have ready options you can take advantage of.
  • It is Cheaper: Longstanding relationships with insurance providers enable established van rental companies to provide temporary coverage at lower rates. In our experience, the handling fee charged by your insurance company to temporarily transfer insurance can often be as much as €100!
  • It Saves Time: When moving, there is so much to do and so little time to accomplish it all. We help our customers save precious time and money by getting two things done at the same time—your van rental as well as additional driver insurance. It only takes us a few minutes to get everything set up for you.
  • It Covers Your Needs: Whether you are looking for daily, weekly or a weekend van rental, our options are designed to accommodate your needs. What’s more, we offer coverage for both domestic and commercial requirements.
  • It Gives You Peace of Mind: Should you need to add an additional driver or change a name on the temporary insurance on the day of your move, it’s no problem at all. Simply let one of our customer representatives know when you come to pick up your van rental and they will do the needful. You will have peace of mind knowing it is all covered when you rent a van with us.
