Insurance for Impounded Cars
Standard insurance companies will not cover impounded cars and the compound staff will check if your insurance policy is valid for the seized car. It is very important that you take out the right insurance policy to avoid paying further fees & costs and wasting your time at the police compound.
The reason that most insurance companies do not offer impounded car insurance is because it is seen as too high risk to insure a person once they have committed an offence that has resulted in their car being seized and impounded. This could be driving without valid car insurance for example, or without a valid driving license.
Finding an insurance company that offers cover for for impounded vehicles can often be very difficult and time consuming. At Impounded Car Insurance UK it is our aim to take the stress away from the process and source the seized car insurance that you need.

Release Your Impounded Car
If your car has been seized by the police and impounded there are certain things you will need to get your impounded car released from the compound. As mentioned above, you will need an impounded car insurance policy. You will also need your driving licence, your v5 document to prove ownership of the vehicle and a valid MOT certificate.
It is very important you gather your documents quickly as you will only have a 2 week window of opportunity to get your seized car released before your vehicle gets crushed or auctioned off. Another reason to act quickly is that you will have to pay a storage fee for every day your car is left in the pound so the quicker you act the less you will have to pay for storage. Once you have gathered your documentation you will need to go to the pound that has been indicated on the seizure notice handed to you by the police, you will also need to take this notice to the pound in order for you to get your seized car released.
