How to find the best Motor Trade insurance

If you want a great deal for your car insurance, you’ll just head online to a comparison site or go direct to a broker like Quoteline Direct. But when it comes to motor trade insurance, how do you get the best deal possible?

There are lots of websites offering motor trade insurance, but finding a company you can trust is important.

You don’t have time to receive hundreds of phone calls from companies offering you a quote – it’s much easier to have a company that will search for you and offer good value insurance, without the hassle of having to give your information several times over.

So, where do you start?

Compare motor trade insurance with a motor trade broker

Motor trade insurance is more complicated than standard car insurance.

It’s not just the vehicles you need to cover:

  • You could sell a handful of vehicles each year, or you could sell hundreds
  • You might work part-time, or you might work full-time
  • You might have business premises
  • You might want to include employers’ liability and public liability cover…

For all these reasons – and more – it’s important to speak to an insurance broker you can trust to get a good deal. A company that deals with a range of insurers, offers a full range of road risks and traders combined covers, can look after claims for you, and provides good value insurance cover.

Because Bollington have been looking after motor trade businesses for over 45 years, we are that specialist motor trade broker you can trust!

Is there a motor trade insurance comparison site?

There is no such thing as a motor trade insurance comparison site because – as explained above – no two businesses are the same, so there is no way of getting a quote and buying online because everybody’s requirements are different.

Although some sites will make it look like they have access to lots of insurers to get a quote for you, this often means they will pass your details across to a number of different insurers and brokers who will then call you to run through a quote… and there could be lots of them calling you!

In an ideal world, you’ll want to pass your details to one broker who can search a panel of insurers to find the best quote they can for your individual circumstances.

That’s what Bollington can do for you.

Getting value for money

Getting good value for money from your insurance can only really be judged if you need to use your policy.

While you might be able to get cheap motor trade insurance from some companies, they won’t necessarily give you the cover you need.

Again, this is where a motor trade broker like Bollington can assist. Unless your broker understands your business well, how do they know what insurance you actually need – or even what insurance you don’t need?

Bollington’s understanding and experience of all motor trades means that we can help you get good value insurance whatever you do: from part-time car sales to dealerships, and from mobile mechanics to MOT stations.

We make sure that your policy has the cover needed for your specific business, whether it’s just a third-party road risks only policy or a full traders combined policy.

And cover with us doesn’t break the bank. We’re highly competitive with our prices, offering payment options including instalments for eligible motor traders.
