Leading van insurance intermediary Gladiator
Commercial is now allowing drivers to mirror their No Claims
Bonus from their car onto a van. Many commercial insurers
are unable to accept No Claims Bonus transfers between
cars and vans, and vice versa. However, Gladiator Commercial
can, with its Mirror No Claims Bonus Scheme.
The Mirror No Claims Bonus Scheme means that
customers’ private car bonus is not affected in any
way. Providing proof of the existing No Claims Bonus can
be given, Gladiator Commercial will mirror the equivalent
percentage of No Claims Bonus across to the commercial vehicle.
Gladiator Commercial can also mirror a No Claims Bonus from
a commercial vehicle policy. For example, a builder who may
have been sub-contracting for a few years, and only driven
company vans during this time. If he then decided to buy
his own van, Gladiator Commercial can mirror his private
car No Claims Bonus onto the new van.
Chris Price, managing director at Gladiator
Commercial said, “We recognise the importance of assessing
each case on its own merits. Just because a driver may have
gained No Claims Bonus on a private car, or have only driven
company vans, this does not make their van driving ability
any different. We are more than happy to acknowledge their
driving experience and mirror their No Claims Bonus accordingly.”
As an example, a 38-year-old builder from Nottingham,
who has purchased a van for the first time can save himself £112
by having his 5 years No Claims Bonus from his car mirrored
on his van’s policy. The normal price with zero No
Claims would be £320.06, but with his No Claims matched,
the premium falls to £208.06.
