The number of vans on UK roads is on the rise and as a result the number of drivers seeking customised, business-specific van shelving and storage is also on the up.
There Are More Customised Vans on UK Roads
According to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) there are now more than 4 million vans on the road, and this number is only set to rise in the coming months.
There is also a recent trend towards customisations which provide business-specific storage needs while still meeting standard safety standards and minimise the weight of the vehicle. Racking being a popular choice for tools and materials.
Does This Affect Van Insurance Premiums?
Customisations affect the way a vehicle looks and performs, therefore many insurers see modified vehicles as a higher risk and may increase their premiums. These snazzy new additions may also increase the risk of theft, which also may increase the cost of insurance.
