Car trade insurance is insurance cover specifically designed to protect people working in the motor trade. It can be tailored to your businesses particular requirements but there are really three core cover areas:

Motor trade premises insurance

If you have a garage or showroom, and it’s mortgaged, it’s more than likely that having buildings insurance will be a condition of your terms with the mortgage lender.
