Our Motor Trade Insurance Policy Explained.

Our motor trade policies (also known as Traders Combined Cover) will be tailored to meet your specific business requirements. Whether it is your full time or part time occupation and whether you work from your home or a separate business premises. Usually, a combined motor trade insurance policy will consist of several parts. We will recommend the elements of a policy that will be most beneficial to your individual situation but you can choose the cover you need.

All of the types of cover can be combined into one policy to suit your requirements:

Cover For Driving Vehicles On The Road (Road Risk)

-€“ This is the bare minimum insurance cover you will need to operate within the motor trade. This provides you with cover for driving any vehicle in your care, custody or control that isn’t owned by you. This part of the cover is similar to personal car insurance in giving you three levels of cover;

  • Third Party – Will cover injury, loss or damage to a third party and their vehicle but not to you or your vehicle. Any passengers in your car would be covered.
  • Third Party, Fire & Theft – Covered as Third Party Only but in addition this level of cover pays out for damage, theft, fire or loss to vehicles that you (the motor trader) are responsible for within your work duties.
  • Fully Comprehensive – As well as covering two levels of cover, you would be covered for accidental damage to any vehicles that you are responsible for or own. If  you were  driving one of your customer’s cars and were to be involved in an accident and the car was damaged,  the insurance company would pay for the repairs (less the excess).

Public Liability Cover

– This will protect your business from claims made against you by third parties for injuries or damage to property, caused as a result of your business activities. For example, if you sold a car that was involved in an accident on the customer’€™s journey home due to a brake failure or a tyre working itself loose following its replacement at your facility. You would be fully covered for any damages to the customer’s property or assets.

Employer’s Liability Cover

-€“ You are required if you employ anyone, to cover the cost of compensation, should they be unfortunate to be injured whilst at work.

Asset Cover

-€“ This will cover for the cars you have in stock, your tools and machinery, your office equipment and even your business premises can be added into a combined policy should you need it.


In addition to being able to tailor your road risk and liability cover to suit your needs, we also have a range of additional cover options to give you extra peace of mind, including:

Legal Expenses Cover

-€“ Legal Expenses Cover is a type of insurance you can buy as part of your motor trade insurance to cover yourself against the potential costs of legal action either brought by you or against you as a road user.

Breakdown Cover

-€“ This will cover your own vehicle, so you can be recovered back to your premises in the event of a breakdown.

Excess Protection

-€“ If you are unfortunate enough to need to make a claim you can recover your excess after the event.

Windscreen Cover

-€“ We offer cover for the repair or replacement of damaged windows or the windscreen of vehicles owned by the policy holder.

All our additional policies have different covers, so please check your policy wording.
