What is Vehicle Parts Manufacturers Insurance?

Being a parts manufacturer having specialist insurance in place is essential, it’s not in every insurer’s appetite and, usually, a specific insurance policy needs to be bespoke around the business requirements, it’s not just a case of pulling a readymade policy off the shelf.

Whilst a parts manufacture insurance policy can be made up of many different types of cover having quality Product Liability Insurance in place should be a priority, Liability insurance is the cornerstone of any insurance program.

Product Liability insurance cover is essential in case a component part that you have produced causes a loss damage or injury to the user of the product.

Usually, product liability insurance forms part of a combined liability policy or a section of a wider policy, this will also include public liability which protects you against alleged negligence against a member of the public, this might be at your business premises or if you are away such as deliveries or where you are at someone else’s premises.

There are many other insurance covers that you can add to safeguard your business against losses and to keep you in business. An insurance policy of this type should always be sought to provide the best protection for your business.

What Insurance is available for a Car, Van or Motorcycle parts manufacturer?

A vehicle parts manufacturing business needs to be protected against various risks they are likely to face in the course of their business. This can be anything from a theft at the premises or something much worse such as a large fire that stops the business from continuing for many months.

The machinery used to produce components of accurate tolerances can be very expensive, CNC machinery, presses and specialist welding and joining and of course CAD equipment on its own can run into many tens of thousands. With some component parts being of special alloys or non-ferrous metals, these need to be protected and this is where Stock insurance is a very important cover.

Sometimes damage at the manufacturing premises such as storm, fire or in more modern times with floods being more frequent can mean the business can’t operate causing a loss of profits, covers such as business interruption insurance are available to make sure the business remains in business and to put you back in the same position as if the loss had never occurred.

Whilst Public & Products Liability is essential it is also a legal requirement to ensure that injured employees are properly compensated, this is called Employers Liability.

When delivering your products to your customers or entrusting them to a carrier means they are exposed to further risks such as theft, Goods in Transit insurance will protect your goods until they arrive at their destination.

Being a Director of a Company has its rewards, but also comes with its risks. A director can be held responsible for a wrongful act and this is where Directors & Officers Liability Insurance is essential.
