Do I Need Car Dealer Insurance?

If you are in any way involved in the selling of cars for commercial purposes, you should consider specialist car dealer insurance.

If you operate a car dealer business and drive vehicles associated with this, you are required by law to have road risk insurance as a minimum. As a car dealer, you may also need specialist motor trade cover for different aspects of your business including:

  • Demonstration of Vehicles – Your customers will most likely want to test drive any vehicle before they buy, and standard vehicle insurance cover will not cover you for this.
  • Premises Cover – A motor trade policy as standard only covers you for when the vehicles are on the road away from your home or premises (it is Road Risk only). If you wish to cover your vehicles when they are parked at your premises, for risks such as theft and damage, then additional cover is available.
  • Public Liability Cover – You may also want to consider public liability cover to protect you from any claims from members of the public in relation to your business.
  • Employer’s Liability Cover – If you have any employees working for your car dealer business it is a mandatory requirement to have employer’s liability cover in place.

Acorn’s dedicated motor trade insurance team will take the time to understand your requirements and provide you with the competitive cover that is suited to your business’s unique needs, no matter what type of car dealer business you operate. Having the right vehicle sales insurance policy in place will provide you with the security to operate your business without worry, whether you are a sole trader operating from home, or if you are a larger organisation operating from business premises.
