Here at Impoundedcarinsurance.org we know all about having a vehicle impounded…the cost, hassle and time it takes! When you have your vehicle seized it can be very difficult to find reliable sources of information and know what to do next. Not only that but finding impounded car insurance can be almost impossible! So the above is why this website was developed: to help owners of seized cars retrieve their vehicles as quickly and painlessly as possible.

When it comes to finding impounded car insurance, you’re definitely in the right place. We have made special arrangements with our customers by getting discounts off leading insurers’ prices for impounded cars. Follow the above ‘get quote’ button or call us and see how we can help you today. You will be able to buy either short term, temporary policies for 30 days (which you can lapse when no longer needed) or there are annual policies giving you peace of mind that you have full insurance in place.
When comparing impounded car insurance policies, it’s important you weigh up your plans for the vehicle. If you will sell it or have it SORN, then perhaps the best option is a short term monthly policy since the cost is a lot cheaper and you’re not bound to a long term financial committment. But do remember, the cover is usually only third party so if you have an accident and you’re at fault, your own car will not be covered.
This may be an unreasonable risk to you, or you may want to keep driving once you retrieve the seized car. If this is the case, then you should opt for an annual seized car insurance policy. The cover is typically fully comprehensive – protecting your car and self – and comes with cover extensions such as legal fees, driving others cars, EU cover and gives you the chance to build up no claims bonus (NCB). NCB is very important since if you don’t claim it makes future insurance premiums cheaper saving you hundreds of pounds. Some insurers give up to 25% discount for just one year’s NCB, so if your insurance is £1,000, next year you could save around £250!
Act quickly! Or face the consequences!
Once the police has seized your vehicle, time is a serious constraint! They only need to give you seven days to produce the correct documentation before your car is disposed of. Once disposed of you will not receive any proceeds or compensation for it. Even if you do provide the requested documents on time, you still only have a further seven days to retrieve if from the police pound and pay the charges. So don’t rest on your laurels and make sure you act quickly!
