Motor trade insurance is designed to protect people in the vehicle industry from loss or damage relating to their business. A motor trade policy combines a number of protections under a single umbrella, including things such as public liability insurance, employers’ liability insurance, property insurance and road risk insurance.

Motor trade policies are designed with vehicle traders and repairers in mind, with a range of coverage options available to protect your business assets and customer base.

A combined motor traders policy or road risk only policy are two options regularly available from insurance companies. Many insurance providers also offer dedicated coverage options for part-time traders, traders working from home, mobile traders, and specific automotive businesses.
