Short term impounded car insurance via MoneyMaxim can assist you in acting quickly and efficiently to release your vehicle from a pound. We are associated to a few insurers and brokers who can help you find the best policy at an appropriate price, but also ensuring it offers the right cover you're looking for that suits you.
To release an impounded vehicle you need to provide proof of insurance to the pound, and in the event of a vehicle being seized due to no insurance, then a short term policy providing immediate cover is extremely convenient.
No matter what the reason is for having a vehicle seized, whether it was deemed unsafe for the road, an uninsured motorist was driving or due to a parking violation, you may find your current annual insurance policy has certain restrictions which prevent you having the correct cover to release impounded vehicles, or that finding a new annual insurance policy is difficult as it's classed as a high-risk category. If this is the case, then a short term 30 day policy is the ideal answer to act as quickly as possible,
It's vital you act quickly to recover an impounded vehicle for many reasons. Firstly you will be charged a daily storage fee of around £25 plus which is an unwanted cost at what can be a stressful time.

To collect a police seized vehicle from a pound, the minimum days of cover required is 30, which through any of the insurers offered here with MoneyMaxim can be purchased within minutes, along with the correct certificate of insurance being emailed immediately, making it a smooth, stress free process for you.
Along with the proof of insurance, if required, you will also need:
Although the requirements may differ from one area to another (so do check with your local pound before attending) the Metropolitan Police detail the process for cars impounded in their authority on their website page entitled 'Seized Vehicles' which includes a section on Impounded Vehicle Insurance.
