Hi all, i am looking for a Iveco Daily to convert into a camper van, now a few friends have mentiond that the insurance can be high for self build/DIY campers, is this true, is it much more generaly than a proffesional conversion.

It can be, you need to shop around. Try to get some quotes, and see if they're reasonable.

Well i got to call one and it came back at just under 600, not bad at all and good cover. with Adrian Flux of all places, usually high for my other cars with them.

Hi pepe63, if i can get it that low i will be well chuffed, i will call around more when the time comes, i am selling up now to get a van, cars etc. I will give Shield a go aswell then.

So this ins cover from Shield that covers the van from start to finish, is that so i can drive it or just while being on a driveway? Be good to be able to drive for getting to work and fit it out at weekends etc.

I called Shield about this `drive as you DIY` great price at 349 FC and all good extras. BUT as i have no NCB, (i have always has special policies so you dont collect any NCB, even with my full NCB for 24 years.)
So with me having no NCB i need to have the conversion done and completed in 90 days, if my wife is the named driver/policy holder then i can have 120 days to do it.

Also its good that i valued the van at 2500 and then completed camper at 8000 and the price stays the same.

i think i will just get the van and convert then insure it, time and money will be hard on 90 days to do it.

thanks though for the heads up on Shield.
