What does horsebox insurance cover?

Market value replacement for your horsebox

Our products offer true market value for your horsebox and don’t assume that it depreciates at a set rate each year. This means that should you lose your box, or have it stolen, our insurers will work with you to calculate the actual market value of your horsebox at the time of loss.

Limited mileage discounts

If you use your horsebox rarely and only for short distances, it's unfair to have to pay the same fees for your horsebox as someone who drives great distances with theirs. We offer discounts for customers with annual mileages of under 10,000 miles.

Cover for young drivers

Many customers come to us because they have been unable to find cover for an under 25 driver. At Towergate, we offer policies which will insure fully licensed drivers of 17+ years, both in their name and as named drivers on someone else’s horsebox insurance policy.

Cover for theft and malicious damage

We can provide cover for theft and malicious damage for horseboxes of all sizes and values. To reduce the risk of theft, we do encourage customers to take security precautions such as fitting immobilisers, and regular safety checks. Please be aware that some insurers require security arrangements to be in place in order to validate cover.
