How big is your TiT cover?

Rockers to roofers can now protect their van's contents for just over £1 a week

8th February 2011

Hastings Van — one of the UK's leading insurance providers — has just launched a new insurance policy designed to offer van drivers — be they roofers or rockers affordable cover for their "tools" in transit (TiT) Depending on the nature of their work, "tools" can be anything from rocker's band equipment, to a builder's power drill or an architect's lap top.

TiT* offers affordable protection for tools that are lost, damaged or destroyed if they are in the process of being loaded — or unloaded, carried, or temporarily stored in an insured vehicle. Two levels of cover are available — £54.99 for £2,500 of cover and £69.99 for £5,000 of cover — both levels of cover have a £100 excess.

Tools will be replaced on a new for old basis, but the policy does not offer cover damage caused by wear and tear, or depreciation and excludes cover for sheets, packing materials, chains or toggles.

Martin Paling, head of van insurance, Hastings Van: "Motor insurance for your van will not cover its contents, so we are delighted to be able to offer such affordable protection, which would enable anyone from a rock band to a roofer, an architect to a plumber to continue being able to earn a living even if their tools were stolen.

For more information about TiT or to get a van insurance quote, please call Hastings Van on 0800 99 1066.
