Motor trade insurance refers to a wide range of possible policies that can be combined to provide suitable cover for businesses working with cars, vans and other vehicles. Since this type of insurance can cover different business taking many different approaches to the motor industry, policies are often tailored specifically on an individual basis.
Whether you’re selling vehicles, repairing and replacing parts or driving a customer’s car as a valet, having the appropriate insurance in place will give you peace of mind that you’re covered in case of any unexpected and potentially expensive problems.
Depending on the size of your business, you may require a policy that provides cover for several named drivers or even ‘any driver’. Motor trade insurance will generally cover any vehicles your business owns, as well as customers’ vehicles that come into your care, custody or control for the purpose of carrying out any necessary work.
There are lots of different ways in which a motor trade insurance policy can be tailored. It’s important to think about and discuss the kinds of regular activities and potential risks that you face in your daily operations. Not only will this prevent you facing a nasty shock if it turns out you’re not covered for something, it also ensures you don’t end up paying for cover you don’t really need.
