Finding the best Motor Trade Insurance in the UK

Whether you’re a bike dealer, a car dealer or a caravan and motorhome dealer, you need insurance that can meet your business circumstances and requirements. That’s why we provide a range of bespoke insurance packages for the motor trade to ensure you have the right cover for your business – and for your customers.

What type of motor trade policy do I need?

If you’re a dealer, there are some insurance policies that you’re required to have by law. If you don’t have them in place, you could be liable for a significant sum of money if a theft occurs or if a customer is injured. That’s why it’s important that you know exactly what cover you need. Below is an outline of some of the types of cover you may require.

Premises cover (not always applicable if you are renting the premises)

Stock cover, such as cover for leathers or bikes. Some categories are deemed higher risk and so if you stock more leather jackets (high risk) than helmets, for example, then the costs will likely rise

Business interruption cover, which provides cover in the event of an insured peril, such as a flood or a fire, for up to 12 months – although this time period can be extended

Public liability, service liability and employer’s liability. These covers protect customers in the event that they suffer an injury or harm on the premises, staff, customers and premises in the event of poor service or defective workmanship, and employees should they suffer an accident or injury on your premises. Public liability and employer’s liability are required by law

Accompanied and unaccompanied demonstration cover, which allows the dealer to let a customer try out a vehicle either accompanied or unaccompanied before they make the purchase

Loan and hire, which allows the dealer to loan and hire other vehicles if a vehicle is brought into the dealership for repair

Road risk cover, used for the dealer’s own vehicles or if customers’ vehicles are road-tested by the dealer

Each bike dealer’s individual needs will be different, which is why we provide bespoke online motor trade insurance. Call our commercial quote line on 0345 604 3352 and a member of our friendly team will walk you through the process of obtaining a quote, to find cover that works for you.
