Gladiator offers four different types of van insurance:

Social use

This option is for van drivers who don't use their van to commute to and from work.

So if you only drive a van for personal and leisure activities then this is the policy for you.

Social and commuting

If you also use your van to commute to and from a single place of work, then you will need to up your cover with this policy.

Own Goods cover

This is suitable for van owners who use their vehicle in connection with their business (builders, plumbers, joiners etc.) and for those who travel between different places of work (different job sites, depots etc.)

If your van is used to transport your tools, stock or merchandise then you can also upgrade with Gladiator's Goods and Tools cover, which is basically contents cover for your van - meaning if your tools are stolen or damaged you are covered.

Haulage cover

If your van is used to deliver third-party goods, then you will need haulage insurance.

This is ideal for couriers, removal van drivers and anyone else who earns their living by transporting goods.
