In the insurance industry it can be all too easy to be beguiled by cheap premiums. Especially since the rise of price comparison websites. However, cheap does not mean necessarily good at all. T is very tempting to go for the cheapest option with insurance, as many of us think to ourselves “I have never made a claim; I only need the minimum level of cover.” While this may indeed be true of a lot of drivers, it unfortunately doesn’t mean that this will continue to be the case for you or your business.
Motor trade insurance is not like conventional personal insurance and cannot even really be compared. If you run a dealership and have insurance covering all of your fifty cars in stock, going cheap on your insurance could mean that all of your stock isn’t covered. Don’t fall into the trap thinking “Surely that’s standard cover!” Often this is not the case, and then you will surely kicking yourself that you didn’t fork out a few extra pounds for the right cover for you and your business.
Motor trade insurance is a complex insurance; there are many different types for all different types of businesses. When you get a quote it is imperative that the person you are dealing with has the while picture in terms of your company setup. Give them all the ins and outs such as number of staff, level of stock, tools on the premises etc. This is after a comprehensive business insurance where the assets are often in most cases extremely valuable.
