Our guide to getting your TentBox roof tent covered by insurance
Insuring your TentBox
We appreciate that a TentBox is a large investment, and the last thing anyone wants is the risk of someone stealing it. Rest assured, it is possible to get your TentBox insured in various ways, which we have detailed below:
Tent Camping Insurance
The Camping and Caravanning Club offers a Tent Camping Insurance product, which they are able to apply to a TentBox.
We highly recommend this option if you are looking to insure your TentBox - call them on +44800 124 4633 for more information.
Adding crossbars and/or a roof rack to your vehicle is considered a modification, therefore, it is extremely important to inform your motor insurer that you are attaching permanent cross bars/a roof rack and a TentBox to your vehicle.
Contacting your vehicle insurance provider will give you all the information you need regarding whether or not a TentBox can be covered under your policy. We've found that insurers often cover roof boxes, so they may be able to cover a TentBox, which is a similar concept.
Another important tip is to contact your home insurance provider. The majority of home insurance policies cover items taken out of the home, e.g. your home insurance may cover your mobile phone or laptop. Therefore, your home insurance provider may be able to cover your TentBox, so it's definitely worth giving them a call.
If you are lucky enough to have a garage to store your vehicle and TentBox in, we would absolutely recommend doing this, as garages and car parts are often considered an attachment of your house for insurance purposes.
Different insurance providers have different policies and procedures. The best thing to do is call your individual provider for their advice.
