Motor traders internal and road risks cover

A motor trade policy is usually split into two parts: internal risks and road risks. Here’s what each one will usually cover:

  • Internal risks – your business premises, stock, machinery, equipment, tools, your car and customers’ cars on-site. Business interruption and liability cover also falls under internal risks.
  • Road risks – any vehicle owned by you or used in connection with your motor trade business that is taken away from the business premises.
  • Employers liability insurance. A legal requirement if you have employees, this cover will offer financial support if a member of staff claims against you if they are injured at work or suffer a work related illness.
  • Public and products liability insurance. Another type of motor trade liability cover, this protects you against claims made by the public against your business, and if they declare one of your products caused them to injure themselves.
  • Business interruption. This is put in place to safeguard your finances should an insured incident lead to loss of income.
