Motor Trade Insurance

10 Tips to help you to save money.

  • When you are in conversation with the broker the question of ‘what were you paying last year’ or ‘what is your best quote this year’ may well arise.  It is important that you provide accurate information. Giving a low figure and hoping the broker will match it will not work; the broker will already have an indication of what the price should be.  He or she will know the information you have given is inaccurate. If you are looking for a policy with premises and liability then Evans and Lewis can provide a price comparision.
  • If you are looking for traders insurance then it is best to start looking 30 days in advance. Whether it be motor trade insurance under 25 or traders insurance with convictions all insurance quotes are valid for 30 days so there is no risk of the quote becoming out of date.  If you have an existing policy it is better to wait until 30 days before renewal to look for a new quote. If you are looking for a great deal on your motor trade insurance then you will need a specialist broker like Evans & Lewis Insurance

  • When looking for traders insurance there specialist brokers that can help if you have a particular special requirement i.e. motoring convictions or motor trade insurance under 25.

For example you might be looking for low cost garage cover with employer’s liability; you could type in cheap combined motor trade insurance under 25 with employer’s liability.
  • A technique used by brokers is to ask motor traders which brokers and insurers they have used in the past. How competitive they were? How good was their service? and would they continue to use them in the future? Brokers also like find out other extra information like what they you were paying in terms of interest rates, or any other extras added to policy. All of these can have a bearing on how cheap online motor trade insurance under 25 policies can go up in cost when all the extras are added.
  • Once you have purchased your motor trade insurance you will need to update your vehicles on the MID; or Motor Insurance Database, as and when a change in stock occurs. In the event of a police check they can automatically see if a vehicle is insured. If it’s not on the database you will get pulled over and asked to produce a current insurance policy certificate. This may not apply to motor trade insurance under 25 but with many policies these days you have direct log ins to the MID so as a customer you can self manage stock by adding and removing vehicles on the designated website yourself ensuring peace of mind.
