GAP (Guaranteed Asset Protection) Insurance

MIND THE GAP!! - Between what your motor insurer is likely to pay for your vehicle if it is written-off in an accident or lost through fire or theft (typically £ market value) and the £ balance that the finance company says is outstanding on your hire/lease purchase/rental agreement. The difference can often run into thousands of pounds!

The solution to this problem is simple and very cost-effective – GAP insurance (Guaranteed Asset Protection)

At MSM Insurance we have teamed up with a leading UK GAP insurance provider to bring you highly competitive rates usually much, much cheaper than those offered by motor dealers, but packed with features and benefits to help ensure you have the necessary financial resources to be able to replace your vehicle.

GAP insurance is available for a single personal or business vehicle and if you have a fleet of 5 or more vehicles.
