As the main driver of my company van, should I get insurance in my name or a company policy?

I have a van which is owned by my company, so the company is named as the registered keeper on the V5/55 document. As the company is the registered keeper and owner of the van, as the main driver do I get insurance in my name (as I own the company) or do I need a company policy?

I'd recommend getting a company policy. This will be tailored to your business needs and provide you with the most suitable cover. It will also allow you to purchase a policy that will allow employees to drive the vehicle and ensure the contents are included, along with any tools and equipment.
