Shortfall Gap Insurance for your Land Rover

What can Gap Insurance do for your Land Rover?

Shortfall Gap Insurance can pay the difference between your motor insurance companies settlement on the day your Land Rover is written off and depending upon the level of cover you opt for, either simply clear all outstanding finance, protect the invoice price you paid or even the replacement cost.

This page has been designed to assist you with your understanding of Shortfall Insurance and how it can protect not just your Land Rover, but most importantly your finances. After all, your Land Rover is only a lump of metal and unlike you, it can be replaced.

As much as we all wish, our personal finances are not the same, however, no one has a bottomless pit of money.

Gap Insurance while not being able to stop your Land Rover from being stolen or from being involved in an accident can provide your finances with much-needed protection.

All our policies are genuine, tried and tested and are all backed by the financial compensation scheme.

History of Land Rover

Land Rover is a British automobile manufacturer, which was founded in 1948. It is currently owned by Tata Motors, India's largest automobile manufacturer. The history of Land Rover dates back to its founder Maurice Wilks in 1948. Wilks was a proud owner of an old, beaten up American Jeep, which he would drive around his home in Wales. When the Jeep eventually went bust, he was unable to replace it which allowed him to identify a gap in the British market for such a vehicle. Wilks would go on to set up the Land Rover company, which would become to this day, the second oldest four wheel drive manufacturer after the American World War Two Jeep.

Unlike the American Jeep that used steel, Wilks would take advantage of  the significant post war stock of Aluminium which would make Land Rover's resistant to corrosion. Land Rover entered the industry with great success until it began to experience financial difficulties in the 1960's. The company was first taken over by the British Leyland Motor Corporation in 1967, British Aerospace in 1988, BMW in 1994, Ford in 2000 and then Tata Motors in 2008. In 1970, the popular Range Rover series was introduced.

Land Rover's headquarters are in Warwickshire and they have two production facilities in Liverpool and Birmingham. Current owners, Tata Motors have announced it intends to start production in China and also Saudi Arabia, which are two emerging markets for the company. The company also provides vehicles for both the UK and US militaries who have notably used them in previous conflicts such as Iraq and Afghanistan.

Over the past 20 years, the company has diversified into new markets such as bicycles and pushchairs. In 2005, the company set up Land Rover coffee and underwent a coffee programme in Costa Rica. The programme involved Costa Rican farmers exchanging their traditional ox carts for Land Rovers.
