Comprehensive Motor Trade Insurance

Comprehensive Motor Trade insurance is the best level of cover you can buy, allowing you to ensure your vehicle and business are protected.

If you’re looking for Car insurance or a Motor Trade insurance policy, and want the highest level of cover for your vehicle(s), then you may want to consider a Comprehensive policy.

In addition to having Third Party, Fire and Theft cover, a Comprehensive Motor Trade insurance policy also protects you against damage to your car from uninsured drivers, from motorists that cause damage to your car that cannot be identified, and damage resulting from a collision that isn’t your fault.

Does Comprehensive Motor Trade Insurance Cover Everything?

Even though Comprehensive cover is the highest level of Road Risk Motor Trade insurance policy, it still doesn’t cover everything your business might need. When you take out a Comprehensive Motor Trade Road Risk insurance policy you will only be taking out cover for the main vehicle and any others you add onto the policy e.g. customer vehicles you are in temporary possession of. A Comprehensive policy usually doesn’t include things like Breakdown cover, Windscreeen cover or Carriage of Vehicles cover either, and these things will need to be added on separately. The lack of Windscreen cover doesn’t mean that you can’t put in a claim for a chipped or broken windscreen, but it usually means there would be an excess to pay, separate from your Voluntary or Compulsory Excess amounts. However, every insurer’s windscreen cover is different, so the best practice would be to thoroughly read through the Terms and Conditions of the policy you take out, so you know exactly where you stand.

As a motor trader, you may want to look at additional Motor Trade insurance products that can further protect your business, to cover all of the different elements your business needs. Every motor trade business is different, which is why there isn’t a one-size-fits-all type of Motor Trade insurance policy, and each business needs to be reviewed separately in order to create the most appropriate insurance policy for them.

Combined Motor Trade Insurance
