    Default Van Insurance

    Currently I have 2 x transit connect vans on the road. However, as time is passing I really need something bigger!
    But the trouble I had trying to get these vans insured for less than 1.5k was murder! What chance do I have
    with someone thats bigger (normal transit)!

    No I'm not cheap, but I'm happy in my work.
