    Blimey surely that's a month? Mines 800 a year for a crappy combo (30 years old low risk area 3 points)

    I thought that was £87 per year to start off with, I was thinking "how cheap do you want it, if it gets cheaper they'll be paying you!"

    254 a year for an 08 plate caddy maxi. Benefits of being old I suppose. This on borders of Suffolk, Essex and Cambridgeshire. Would be even cheaper if we were in Ipswich.

    I renewed mine this week. £1000. for an 08 plate renault traffic. Last year i paid £1700 for the year. Thats what you get for being 22 i guess. You gotta laugh if not you might cry.

    yeah im pleased it is quite a drop in price this year than the previous. with all the costs of van, tools, gs reg, insurances, training fees, advertising, feels like we should be charging £200 per ball valve just to recoup lol.

    Don't worry. The new "equality" rules might make it cheaper in 2013 for you lads.

    To get cheap insurance for my van I do the following:
    do the comprison websites to see who is cheapest
    only put the mileage I'm going to need more or less the same as last year
    Play with variables, maybe add the wife
    Then when got cheapest quote online, phone 2 or 3 brokers
    This usually gets me cheaper then my friends!

    Have you tried all of the comparison sites?

    Try at least 2 comparison websites and then try some of the brokers for business insurance by finding them on google. A couple of hours will probably save you at least 100 quid. Sometimes hundreds. A buddy of mine in the trades had a load of accidents and many insurers were charging sky high - spent a day calling everwhere - saved him 1000 quid!!
