I've been insuring with Keith Michaels for quite a few years now & have been very satisfied with the service. They have been very helpful & give a very personal service. Even after shopping around each time, (as we are all told to do!) Keith Michaels prices are still very competitive & hard to beat.
Spoke to a helpful Chap called Matt Moody (great name by the way), who was anything but what his name suggests. He was patient with me and found me a really competitive quote. Would recommend!
Honest guys. Very straight forward.
A human voice answered the phone straight away and gave me a competitive quote quickly and efficiently, which I accepted. Confirmation processed quickly too. Efficient use of their time and mine.I am a new customer so time will tell whether I remain satisfied!
As an expat with a home in the UK it was great to find a broker who had insurance companies on the books who were willing to recognise No Claims gained in the EU
Can never fault these guys. Renewed for the 3rd year running as they've great price and amazing customer service!
Effortless process and wonderful service. Their tailored expat products take all the heat out of something that other insurance companies seem to want to over complicate. Cannot recommend highly enough.
Excellent service, after returning to UK after a long period away, they took care of my insurance needs in a very professional and efficient manner as well as being very competitively priced.

Modified Van & Insurance FAQs
Do you provide discounts for modified van insurance?
Almost all modified vans are owned as second vehicles, used on a limited mileage basis, are show vehicles or cherished vans. We have modified van insurance schemes that cover all these and therefore discounts can often be increased in these circumstances. If you are a member of a Car Club or an Owners Club then you will also more than likely be entitled to a discount. Please just ask when you get your modified van insurance quote.
Which vans are popular for modifying?
The vans that most regularly undergo modifications are:
- VW Transporter
- Ford Transit
- VW Caddy
- Mercedes Sprinter
- Vauxhall Vivaro
- Citreon Berlingo
At Keith Michaels, we can help locate insurance for these plus many more types of modified vans.
Why do van modifications change the price of the insurance?
Making changes to your van can alter the price of your insurance for various reasons. Adding additional safety features will usually lower your premiums, but other changes can cause it to increase. This can be either because the van is simply worth more, or because it has become more attractive to thieves – such as in the event of eye-catching paintwork or performance enhancements.
What vans make the best campers?
Depending on your needs, various vans might be more suited for camper conversion than others. You need to think about what you need to accommodate. Are you a lone traveller, a couple, a family, or group of friends? Will you need to cater for young children or pets? Do you need to travel with bulky equipment? Among the most popular vans for campers are VW Transports, Ford Transits, and Renault Trafics. This is mostly because of their generous size and smooth driving style.
