What is Motor Trade Insurance?
Motor Trade Policies are designed to cover MOT/Service Centres, Vehicle Repair/Body Shops (including mobile mechanics & valets) and Vehicle Dealerships. Motor Trade can be a complex area of insurance depending on the size of the business entity involved, however when separated into smaller bitesize sections it can easily be simplified to achieve a high level of understanding.
Sections of a Motor Trade policy include cover for the following:
- General Contents
- Machinery & Plant
- Business Interruption
- Road Risks including:
- Own Vehicles
- Vehicles in custody (Customer Vehicles)
- Customer items in vehicles
- Trade Plates
It is against the law not to have a motor trade policy in place if you are making a profit or income from being a motor trader.
What cover do Motor Traders have?
Typically, Motor Traders will have a combination of the above listed cover types, however no two Motor Trade Companies are the same, so it’s important to make sure your insurance cover is reviewed and tailored specifically to your needs.
