Want to know more about Motor Trade Insurance? If so, read on

There are many diverse businesses which operate under the umbrella term of Motor Trade within which are even more risks associated than a typical commercial insurance policy due to increased possibilities of an event such as fire due to fuel and theft due to the value of equipment and stock.

Whether you are in the business of vehicle sales, servicing and mechanics, with premises or without, we at Peacock Insurance can find a policy from our panel of specialist insurers that is right for you and every eventuality you may encounter.

If you trade from home, or are a road side mechanic, a cheaper road risks only policy is adequate for you. With cover for named drivers; social, domestic and pleasure included for spouses, even demonstration cover for potential purchasers, we can arrange a policy to suit your needs. Private car no claims bonus may also be taken into consideration.

Larger organisations need a far more comprehensive policy which We can arrange through specialist insurers such as AXA and NIG.

Typical policy features would, as well as road risks include:-

  • Material damage
  • Public liability, servicing and sale of goods
  • Employers liability

Additional optional policy features include:-

  • Business Interruption
  • Selected all risks
  • Goods in Transit
  • Engineering Inspection Cover
  • Group Personal Accident and Sickness
  • Commercial Legal Expenses
  • Theft by Employees
  • Deterioration of Stock
  • Computer breakdown

Some useful tips for insuring your business:-

1 - You may reduce your premiums significantly if you have good risk management systems in place. Surveys may be carried out on your premises to advise on risk management with regard to potential dangers such as fire from fuel oils not being stored correctly and safely e.g. near a location where welding or cutting is taking place.

2 - A written health and safety policy is vital for the wellbeing of you and your employees. You may well be trading illegally if this is not the case.

3 - Always consider very carefully your sums insured e.g. under the material damages section of your policy. If you are insured for £100,000 worth of stock and you have a fire at a time when you will be carrying a lot more stock, you will only be paid out for the sum insured. Remember it is far better to be over insured rather than under insured.

4 - It is worth remembering that different insurers' policies vary in cover, sums insured and exclusions etc. Some insurers cover as standard risks that are an optional extra with others. It may be worth considering requesting a policy booklet before you take the policy out to see exactly what is covered. Alternatively our knowledgeable staff can help you with this information.

5 - Consider requesting to add a voluntary excess onto the policy. This is the amount you would have to contribute in the event of a claim and is on top of any compulsory policy excess. This is another good way to reduce your insurance premium.
