Additional Van Insurance Products

Breakdown cover

We believe that RAC are the best provider of Breakdown Cover in the UK; that’s why they’re our preferred supplier. Getting breakdown cover will mean that if you were to breakdown on the side of road on your way to Grandma’s 70th birthday you could be back on your way in no-time. Without it you could wait hours to picked-up by a local garage and it will cost you a pretty penny too. Our RAC Breakdown cover offers three levels of cover to accommodate a range of circumstances.


Replacement Vehicle Cover

If you find yourself temporarily without transport because your van is a total loss and there isn't an at fault third party from whom your insurer can recover costs – what can you do? If you rely on your van for a living, this can be a real problem for both your business and potentially your livelihood in the short term. Replacement Vehicle cover can plug that gap, providing you with a courtesy vehicle or cash alternative for up to two weeks whilst you find a permanent replacement van enabling you to carry on business as usual.

Replacement Vehicle Cover

Tool cover

Whether you’re a tradesman or run a business the tools you use are crucial to you getting the job done. Have you ever thought about what would happen if these tools were stolen? The likelihood is you wouldn’t be able to work and would lose income. Thankfully at Brightside we offer tools insurance that will cover you against equipment being stolen, lost or damaged whilst being loaded, carried, temporarily housed, or being unloaded from your insured vehicle. - helping you get back to work sooner.
