Why do I need temporary insurance?

To release an impounded car 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. Policies are available even for those who had their vehicle impounded due to no insurance.

No matter what the reason is for having a car 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 impounded car policy is the ideal answer to act as quickly as possible,

It's vital you act quickly to recover an impounded car 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. Secondly, you normally have just 7 days to reclaim your vehicle and the longer you leave it the higher the costs are incurred but also, if you fail to produce the required documents to collect the car within 14 days, you may find the vehicle is disposed of and possibly crushed.

What is required to collect my car?

To collect a police seized vehicle from a pound, the minimum days of insurance cover required is 30, which through any of the insurers offered here with MoneyMaxim can be purchased within minutes. You will also find that the certificate of insurance you will need is emailed immediately, making it a smooth, stress free process for you.

Along with the proof of insurance, if required, you will also need:

  • Full drivers licence
  • Valid MOT certificate or proof of a pre-booked MOT test
  • Proof of ownership (the full log book (V5C), or a new keeper supplement (V5C/10) and a verifiable and ‘in date’ bill of sale.

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.
