How Does Traders Insurance Work?

Like many other insurance products, vehicle trade insurance provides certain defences against events that could have an effect on dealers. Motor traders’ insurance often provides a more comprehensive level of coverage than a private policy, making it potentially more useful in the case of a write-off. There are different tiers to the trade insurance coverage and you can choose from the following to be included as part of your protection: 


Road risk cover 

Road risk insurance allows you to display cars during test drives, drive cars to purchase and sell, and drive client vehicles that you are responsible for. To cut down on administrative costs, you may also add and delete vehicles from the motor insurance database (MID). Certain vehicle types, such as sports vehicles and high-end prestige models, are not covered by road risk insurance. Additionally, because it is exclusively for commercial purposes, it does not cover vehicles owned by relatives or friends. 


Traders’ combined cover

Although road risks insurance may be the “minimum” degree of protection most traders want, a far more complete option is also available. The combination insurance for motor traders offers coverage for road risks as well as a number of extras tailored to your company’s requirements.


Liability Cover

Most businesses require liability insurance, which shields you from costs and problems that may arise while working with clients. Conflicts, site mishaps, theft, and vandalism are a few actual instances. Additionally, you might want employers’ liability insurance to protect you in the event that an employee sues you or suffers an injury at work.


What Happens If You Don’t Have Traders’ Insurance?

A motor trade policy is not mandated by law but you are not protected to do business unless you have a current motor trade insurance policy. Additionally, you can suffer serious monetary and reputational harm.

Make sure to get road risks or traders’ combination insurance to prevent making a costly error.
