What is Motor Trades Insurance?

Motor trades insurance is a pack of insurances designed to cover businesses in the automotive industry for a wide range of risks and losses. This includes mechanics, auto-electricians, smash repairers, tyre-fitters/retailers and more.

Along with all the usual inclusions of a business pack (liability, theft, buildings, equipment, business interruption etc) motor trades insurance also covers customer vehicles including driving risk on the road.

For any automotive business, the storage and work carried out on customers’ vehicles presents a huge risk. If a customer entrusts you with their vehicle for repairs or delivery, and something goes wrong, they’ll hold you responsible.

Motor trades insurance provides cover for those scenarios, as well as accidental or natural damage such as fire, flood and storm.

Motor Trades claim example

Alonso operates a workshop to help restore older vehicles, including the use of trade plates to get them registered.

A customer entrusts him with their 1973 Datsun. It’s unregistered, uninsured and needs some work to be made roadworthy. The vehicle is securely locked in Alonso’s workshop, but it’s broken into and the car is stolen.

His customer is devastated, but Alonso hasn’t done anything wrong to make him liable. Because of this, his public liability policy will not pay for the loss.

But, as Alonso has cover for customer vehicles on his premises, he’s able to claim on his Motor Trades insurance and reimburse his customer.

The customer is thrilled that he hasn’t experienced a total loss. A situation that could have resulted in a bad experience for the customer has instead improved Alonso’s reputation.

Frequently Asked Questions

There are many benefits of using a broker over buying directly from the insurer. Insurance brokers:

  • Work on your behalf to secure you better protection through their negotiating power
  • Help you understand your risks and empower you to make better life / business decisions
  • Ensure insurers are held accountable to their promise to protect what you value during claims
  • Save you time and money by taking care of comparing and customising policies for your needs
