Van break-ins are depriving trade professionals of £264million a year, a new study has found.
For plumbers and electricians, whose salaries average £31,787 and £32,500 per year respectively, replacing their stolen tools and materials alone would cost more than two months’ wages.
“We know how tough it can be to have to come back from van theft and too many hardworking professionals are being caught short with their van insurance policy by solely looking for the best price and not ensuring it covers all of their needs. This is why we’re launching van insurance on Honcho – to make finding the right van insurance policy simple and transparent. Looking after your van, tools and income is always going to be a top priority in the trades so taking the time to really investigate your insurance and use a marketplace that has your best interests at heart to find the right insurance cover is imperative to the success and stability of your business.”
The Honcho app can be downloaded for iOS and Android via the App Store and Google Play or from the Honcho website at gethoncho.com/van, and makes it easy for tradespeople to find the right van insurance for them.
