The Definitive Guide to Motor Trade Insurance

Motor trade insurance, also referred to as Road Risk insurance, is vital if vehicles are at the heart of your business. Whether you are a car salesman, a mechanic, you run a garage, or even if your business involves your staff driving in some way, you will need motor trade insurance to ensure you are complying with the law. Motor trade insurance will ensure you are financially protected against any unforeseen accidents or events that could potentially occur within your business.

Why is Motor Trade Insurance Important?

One of the most important aspects to consider is that without obtaining motor trade insurance, you will be breaking the law if your business involves the use of vehicles in any way. Alongside this, motor trade insurance will provide protection to your business and staff who may be driving or working on customers vehicles as well as those that your company own. This means that should an unfortunate event occur which involves a member of staff becoming hurt, or a customer’s car being damaged, your business will be protected.

Who needs Motor Trade Insurance?

The most common types of business which require motor trade insurance are:

  • Motor Traders
  • MOT Centres
  • Garages
  • Mechanics
  • Carwash/ Valeters
  • Repossession Companies
  • Tyres and Exhaust Fitters
  • Car Jockeys

This list is not exhaustive, but it does portray a good idea of who might require motor trade insurance. If you are unsure whether motor trade insurance applies to you, you should ask yourself this question. Does your business include you or your customers vehicles being under the care, custody and control of yourself or your staff? If the answer is yes, you will need to obtain a motor trade insurance policy. It is important to note that motor trade insurance will also apply if you are self-employed. If you are self-employed however still hold responsibility for other people’s vehicles, you must have an insurance policy in place to ensure you are protected. In certain cases, customers may have their own insurance policy from an insurance broker such as which covers other drivers, however this is usually on a third-party basis, not comprehensive. It is still important however that businesses have their own form of motor trade protection rather than rely on customers policies.

What does Motor Trade Insurance cover?

The type of motor trade insurance policy you require depends upon your businesses requirements. Most policies will be tailored to these requirements, so it is important you consider the risks and activities that may occur within your business to ensure you are covered. Taking the time to consider your requirements will ensure you are insured against all incidents, should they occur, and any claims are not rejected. On the other hand, it will also give you the ability to know what you don’t need, and avoid paying for any unnecessary cover.

Common aspects which may be covered by motor trade policies include the following:

Road Risk

If your business involves yourself or your staff taking vehicles onto the public highway, road risk cover is the minimum type of cover you will need. It is a good policy to consider if your business is small or you work from home rather than at a specific premise. This is because only vehicles that are in the trader’s possession when on the road will be insured. This type of policy may benefit your company if the following are regular occurrences that happen within the business.

  • Delivering or driving a customer’s vehicle from the repair garage to a driveway
  • Testing a vehicle after repairs or work have taken place.
  • Delivering cars to buyers

It is important to consider that road risk insurance will only cover business use. If a business owner wishes to use any company vehicles to run personal errands for example, he will not be covered. Like all motor insurance policies, three types of road risk cover will be available, these being comprehensive, third party or third-party fire and theft.

Employers liability Insurance

This is a legal requirement if you employ somebody, regardless of whether they drive a vehicle. It will protect your business against any claims from staff members and should an employee be injured or have an accident at work.

Public Liability Insurance

If the premises in which your business operates is a place that customers can visit, legally you are obliged to ensure the environment provided is safe. Public liability insurance protects you and your employees should an incident occur involving your customers or members of the public which results in a claim.

Product Liability Insurance

This will protect your business if yourself or any of your employees fit a new product or part to a customer’s vehicle, which turns out to be faulty.

Material Damage Cover

This type of cover will protect any vehicles or equipment owned by your business. If your business is a second-hand car dealership for example, all your unsold vehicles will be insured.

Combined Motor Trade Insurance

This type of cover does exactly what the name suggests, it combines all policies into one – road risk, equipment/material cover, as well as protecting your premises. Often, it is cheaper to take out a combined policy, rather than several individual ones.

Tips to maintain your car:


Your car is your companion on most long and short journeys you undertake. And it is like an additional member in the family because you have to take care of your car as one! It needs a lot of care and maintenance, whether you use it often or not. You groom yourself, you groom your pets, then hey, your car needs grooming too! Here are a few tips that you should consider when grooming your vehicle:

Wash the car:
The task which quite a lot are lazy to do! But make it a point to wash your car often. On regular basis dust it or wipe it with a damp cloth, make washing your car properly a once a week ritual. Give it a good wash, dust the interiors, polish the dash and the body of the car too.

Engine oil:
The engine is the heart of your car! So take as much care of it. You need to periodically check the level of engine oil and make sure it’s at an accurate scale. There may be a leak or dip in the oil levels due to the excessive running of the car. Either way, get the oil levels fixed and back to normal. You can change the engine oil every 3500 miles your vehicle runs.

The tyres are the wings of your car. Ensure the tyres are inflated as per the standards and in case of wear and tear, make sure you get the tyre replaced. Also, check the wheel bearings and get them replaced if worn out.

You need to flush out the cooling system annually. And while you do this, make sure you replace the coolant too. The right proportion of coolant and distilled water will keep your system intact and free from corrosion.

Brake fluids:
Other parts of the brake are much more expensive than the brake fluid, which is why it is recommended to change the brake fluid periodically rather than spending a bomb on replacing the entire mechanism.

The battery needs constant inspection too. Battery fluid levels are to be checked from time to time and also check if the cables are intact.

Windows and Mirrors:
The most fragile parts of the car’s exterior, they can be potentially dangerous if not in place. So keep an eye on the mirrors, windows and get them replaced in case of any damage.

The lights of your car are its indicators. If you find any bulbs not functioning, you need to get it changed immediately.

Wiper blades:
What would you do without them in when driving in the pouring rain? Make sure your wiper blades are well-functioning and not broken. You don’t need help replacing the wiper blades as they are easy to fix. Get them fixed on time for a rainy day!

All parts of the car need regular greasing and oiling to keep them functioning well. So make sure you focus on this part too.

Hope these tips help!

Things to keep in mind before buying a car


Buying a car is a milestone for many. You always dream about having your car, going on long drives, exploring places along with friends and family. Now that you have decided to get yourself a four-wheeler, you also have to consider a few more aspects before you finally conclude:

Before buying a car, you need to have your finances in place. And you also need to understand that a car brings in additional maintenance expenses. So the instalments and added expenses will put a strain on your finances. How prepared you are to take this added responsibility will shape your decision of buying a car. Whether to purchase a new one or used one depends on your budget.

Get to know about loan schemes:
If you’re making a cash purchase, no issues there. But most people prefer buying cars with the help of a car loan. Get to know the system accurately – interest rates, number of years, the amount of instalments are facts you should get clarified at the beginning itself. Also, proper research as to which loan is the best bet for you is advisable.

Figure out your requirements:
What is the purpose you need the car for? To accommodate how many people? – are a few questions you need to consider before zeroing down on the type of car you need.

Look around:
Visit showrooms that sell the type of car you desire to purchase. Until you look around and visit showrooms, you won’t know which car suits your needs the best. It may be a little time consuming, but again, a car is a long-term investment. So keep your patience and research thoroughly.

Take test drives of models you have finalised:
Taking a test drive will help you understand the vehicle better and ticks all the boxes in your checklist.

Look for reviews:
There are a lot of platforms where users of cars post their experiences – both good and bad – with their car. You need to track these feedbacks too, as they are hands-on users who obviously know the car for a longer time and better than you.

Get your car inspected:
Especially in the case of used cars, it is advisable to get the car thoroughly checked by a mechanic, who can tell you better about the condition of the vehicle.

Rushing in to decide on a long-term investment makes no sense. Take your time and then come to a final decision!

Trends to watch in the auto industry


The auto industry is developing at a quick pace. Better and improvised models are coming up by the day. The auto industry is becoming environment conscious too. Plus, a comprehensive approach is being implemented which has led to the introduction of driverless cars too. We’ll take a look at the trends in the auto industry you need to know!

  1. Crossover vehicles:
    These vehicles are a cross breed between sedans and SUVs. Crossovers not only look great but are also extremely practical in usage. Overall cost-effectiveness when it comes to fuel and operations is the feature that makes these cars appealing. A lot of growth is being expected in the production of crossovers as they have already started making their mark in the market.
  2. Electric Cars:
    It is heartening to see the automotive companies come up with e-cars. The sales of e-cars have seen a sharp escalation in the past few years. Fuel emissions have a terrible impact on the environment, and e-cars are proving to be path-breaking in this matter. More importantly, bigwigs of the auto industry have ventured into production of e-cars, and believe me; brand says a lot.
  3. Driverless cars:
    Another terrific development in the auto industry, driverless cars are a solution to many issues! Not only are these cars beneficial for the physically disabled, senior citizens or hands-on moms who may find driving a task, these cars also reduce risks of accidents and ease traffic congestion. Though a there have been a few incidents which questioned the applicability of driverless cars, they will soon rectify them and get back with a bang!
  4. Effect of cab services:
    The ‘share a ride’ option that cab services provide are catching up with youngsters, who prefer sharing a cab rides to places rather than investing in an expensive car. This can prove to be a massive setback for the auto industry, which, despite all developments, will not have a bright future, with least interest shown by the next generation.
  5. Blockchain technology in Automotive industry:
    Well, Blockchain seems to be coming to everyone’s counterfeiting issues! After cryptocurrencies, Blockchain has been brought into the auto industry to identify and eliminate counterfeit parts. This technology has proved to be beneficial in making the auto industry more transparent.
  6. Cloud technology integrated with Auto Industry:
    Right from designing to production to even servicing is a lot easier because of the integration of cloud technology with auto industry. This has led to a lot of cost reduction, and all kinds of wastages have been minimised.

The auto industry is in for a lot of new developments! Keep following these trends.
