motor_trade_insuranceWe have access to policies that are suitable for sole traders, partnerships or small companies operating in the motor trade either on a full or part time basis who require road risks cover for their own vehicles and vehicles in their custody or control for motor trade purposes, whilst being driven on the road, parked at their home address or their trade premises. Permanently owned vehicles may be driven for social domestic and pleasure purposes.

Motor trade insurance can be split into two main forms:

1) Motor trade – road risks
This type of motor trade insurance can cover you if you are selling cars from home, or are a mobile mechanic, mobile valeter or windscreen repairer, for example.
