posesHI_van01_COLOR.0001The UK’s 328,000 van drivers whose vehicles are about to leave the protective umbrella of a manufacturer warranty* are now able to benefit from Warranty Direct’s expanded range of mechanical insurance breakdown cover.

The Company has built up a strong reputation for innovation in the sector – it was the first independent warranty provider to cover faults found during standard service and MOT procedures, failures caused by wear and tear and breakdowns caused by non-insured parts.

With cover starting as low as £147 for the year, Warranty Direct’s new van cover is available on all vehicles under 10 years old and with less than 100,000 miles on the clock.

The cost of a mechanical failure for 3.2 million vans in Britain, which clock up an average of 15,000 miles annually**, hits the pocket both from a cost of repair and potential loss of earnings.

“I’m sure that our values will appeal to businesses both large and small.  Time is money and no business wants to be hit by unexpected garage bills,” said Warranty Direct Managing Director, Duncan McClure Fisher.

“We’ve always ensured our policies are simple to understand and to operate and, allowing our van customers to choose whether they have their vehicle repaired at an independent or a franchised garage, gives owners the flexibility they need to keep the wheels moving.”
