The types of MOT station insurance that are available
Generally, there are two main types of traders insurance:
- Road risk insurance: covers you and/or employees driving vehicles you own when using them for any reason, as well as customer vehicles when using them solely for business purposes. As with standard car insurance, you can choose from three levels of cover, namely third party only, third party, fire & theft & fully comprehensive. Road risk is typically used by smaller businesses or those requiring motor trade insurance on a part time basis.
- Combined motor traders insurance: Starts with road risk insurance & can be combined with a number of other types of cover including employers liability insurance (usually required by law if you have employees), professional indemnity insurance, business interruption and many more.
The best way to find out what type of cover you require is to complete the quote form and discuss a tailored mot station insurance quote with an expert adviser.
How to get cheaper MOT garage insurance
One of the easiest ways to save money on your insurance is to compare quotes each year at the time of renewal. As well as this, you may want to consider who you insure on your policy, if you have employees then their own driving histories, e.g. convictions, may affect the amount you pay.
