INSURANCE FOR BUSINESS | VEHICLE RISKS

Motor Trade

If you run a business that involves dealing with other people’s vehicles then there is a good chance that you need to arrange some form of Motor trade insurance policy to ensure that your business is insured properly.

When you take other people’s vehicles into your ‘care, custody and control’ this means that these vehicles have been left in the possession of your business and during that period become your responsibility to insure.

What Cover Does Motor Trade Insurance Provide?

The cover provided by each motor trade insurance policy will differ depending on the particular risks you face and your individual business. A typical motor Insurance policy will include all or some of the following:

Road Risks – A road risks policy allows you to drive your own vehicles as well as driving other vehicles that you don’t own for the purpose of carrying out your motor trade activity,

Combined Motor Trade Insurance – This type of policy provides cover for road risks as well as your equipment and contents. It can also cover the building that you work from. It can often be cheaper to take out combined motor trade insurance rather than a number of separate policies.

Employers’ Liability – This cover is a legal requirement for any business that employs one or more members of staff, regardless of whether they’re driving vehicles or not and can be added to your standard motor trade insurance policy.

Public Liability – This is another type of cover that can be included as part of a single motor trade insurance policy. This will protect you and your employees against claims made by members of the public.

Product Liability – If you fit a part to a vehicle that turns out to be defective, this type of cover will protect you against any claims that arise.

Material Damage – This can provide cover for damage done to any stock vehicles or equipment you own, such as unsold vehicles you own as a car salesman.

Extra Drivers – If your employees drive customers’ cars then you’ll need to decide between an ‘any driver’ policy or adding a number of named employees as extra drivers.

Vehicle Types – You must make sure your insurance covers you and your staff to drive the necessary vehicle types, whether it’s cars, vans or HGVs.

Road Risks Cover

Third Party – Legally, this is the minimum level of cover you must have to drive on public roads. This will cover you whilst driving vehicles, whether they are your customers or your own, for damage, loss or injury that you cause to third parties. This is the least expensive level of cover but also the most basic.

Third Party Fire and Theft – This provides all of the cover of Third Party but also protects you against damage to vehicles covered by your policy occurring as a result of theft or fire.

Comprehensive – As well as the cover included above, a comprehensive road risks policy will also cover you for any accidental damage caused to any of your own vehicles but also any customers’ vehicles under your care, custody or control.
