Someone not connected to the motor trade seeking only to insure a number of vehicles, or one highly rated vehicle cheaply. Some part time motor traders with some other driving jobs can be difficult.

What does a motor trade road risks policy cover?

There are only a limited number of insurance companies offering motor trade road risks policies and none of the policies give exactly the same cover. A few of the variations and extensions are detailed below. Some motor trade policies (but not all) can be extended to cover vehicles at your home -otherwise they will cover you only whilst in the course of a journey. Cover can be Comprehensive, Third Party Fire and Theft or Third Party Only. They will normally cover specified drivers whilst they are driving vehicles which either belong to the policy holder or are in the policyholders possession for motor trade purposes.


Motor Traders may also need Public Liability cover and if you employ other valeters, it is a legal requirement to have Employers Liability Insurance. We can arrange these insurances very competitively.


Employers Liability Insurance is a legal requirement if you employ anyone on either a permanent or temporary basis. It is to protect you against any claim they may make against you for injury. Courts will nearly always seem to award in favour of an employee and claims can be very substantial - with just minor looking injuries costing employers tens of thousands of pounds. Employers Liability cover cannot normally be taken out on it's own - it is usually tied to a Public Liability policy.


Public Liability policies can be purchased without the Employers Liability cover and protect you against claims made by members of the public for damage or injury that you have caused. This cover is not compulsory but must be bought if you also need Employers Liability Insurance.


People employed by you to do work even on a "Self Employed" or "Sub-Contract" basis are not members of the public and the only way you can protect yourself against claims made by them is to arrange Employers Liability cover.

We understand that many of our motor trade friends are experiencing difficulty arranging home insurance. We are told that some of the major insurers are rejecting clients who declare their occupations as motor traders and claims are being turned down for some who have not told the insurers that they deal or work with cars.

We do not sell home insurance ourselves – but we know a man who does.
