If you are thinking of buying a brand-new pick up truck, you’re not alone. Despite the Brexit doom-mongers, and economic defeatists nothing can dampen the British driver’s appetite for a pick up. The first five months of 2017 has seen *registrations of pick-ups rising by almost a fifth on 2016. What’s more with fresh products on the horizon, including the Renault Alaskan and Mercedes-Benz X-Class, the appeal of the pick up looks set to grow.

With a little knowledge and some savvy use of insurance comparison websites like ours, cheap pick up insurance is within your control.

If you are certain of your driving skills and haven’t made a claim in a while, then opting for an increased excess might be a gamble worth taking, to keep your annual premium low.
