Insurance for New Start Up Motor Traders

Starting up a motor trade business for the first time?  Bollington can help with your motor trade insurance arrangements.

You will need road risks insurance as a minimum.  Bollington can accept your existing private car no-claims basis or mirror it, making it easier to get your business up and running without the cost of motor trade insurance weighing you down.  If you’ve worked in the trade already and are setting up by yourself, that experience could be useful when taking out motor trade insurance in your own name for the first time.

Because we’ve been insuring motor traders for over 40 years, we can guide you through the insurance maze, telling you exactly which covers you need, which covers you might find useful but are optional, and which insurance you don’t need at all.

So we can insure you to not only drive customers’ vehicles or move vehicles you buy and sell from one location to another, we can also offer traders combined policies should you need them, which insure your motor trade business premises (if you have them) and your tools and machinery, and we offer employers’ liability insurance and public liability insurance.  Don’t worry if you’ve never had these insurance covers before – we not only go through you what insurance you need, we also explain why you need it.

Younger traders might struggle in the early years to obtain insurance at a competitive rate, though Bollington has a good record in insuring young motor traders.  For more experienced drivers moving into motor trade sales, repairs or servicing, your motor trade insurance policy could be surprisingly affordable, leaving you to concentrate on building up a stock of vehicles to work with and a new customer base.
