Specialist Impounded Motorcycle Insurance

Having your motorbike impounded can be a very expensive business; impound charges and police fines can add up to hundreds of pounds – and no one wants to be stung with higher insurance premiums on top of all that.

Whether your bike got towed because of parking issues, if you got caught riding without insurance, or if your bike was deemed not to be road legal – having your motorbike impounded can have a real knock-on effect. Even if the impounding wasn’t your fault, many insurers will react to the situation by charging much more money for your insurance premiums, adding insult to injury.

Since you will have to get insurance to leave the impound where your bike is held, you may feel that you have no option but to pay over the odds to get your precious motorcycle back. Even if you do have impounded motorbike insurance, any police conviction you receive afterwards could mean that some companies will continue to charge much higher rates in the future, and some may even refuse to cover you.

Luckily you don’t need to feel helpless and forced to make a difficult choice between the best protection for your bike and an affordable policy. As well as great value motorbike insurance for seized bikes and quads, we can also offer impounded scooter insurance, protecting your pride and joy, no matter what form it takes.

At Bikesure we prefer to do things a little differently, meaning that we choose not to refuse impounded motorcycle insurance for people who make one mistake, or hike up the premiums of bikers without checking their story first. We take care to ensure that everyone’s circumstances and motoring backgrounds are taken into account when we quote, helping you to avoid unfair premiums.

At Bikesure we work hard to help our customers find the best impounded motorbike insurance for them; a policy that offers the right cover at an affordable price - far from taking advantage of your situation. We put your circumstances and needs first, offering a fair and realistic quote for your impounded bike insurance.

Operating from Norfolk-based call centres, staffed by real people, not just a frustrating computer menu, you can get the very best service by getting in touch today. With decades of experience, and our position as part of the UK’s largest specialist insurance broker, we have the background to help you find insurance when others can’t or won’t.

Helping Convicted Riders get Cover

Case Study

“Bikesure didn't hold my past mistakes against me”

“I'd been struggling to get any cover for my bike because of a lengthy prison sentence I served for crimes I committed when I was young.

But I'm much older now and Bikesure took into account the length of time since the conviction and the rehabilitation work I've undertaken.”

“Bikesure took into account it was a simple mistake”

“I took my off-road bike out for a bit of fun with my mates. I thought we were on private land, but it turned out that section of the track was a public highway, so the police took my bike off me".
