What is Road Risk Insurance?
This insurance covers you to drive vehicles that you do not own but may have to drive to carry out your business. This could be moving a customer vehicle from their home to your garage, to another location to carry out repairs or to drive a new car bought from auction to your home. If you are involved in an accident on the road such as a crash, road risk insurance will cover the costs of your claim. We offer all the 3 main levels of cover in our road risk policy types. These are:
- Third party only: covers damage to other people and their property in the event of an accident. For example, you may reverse your car into another car, with third party only insurance the costs of the other car would be covered, but the policy would not cover the damages of the car you are driving. This is the very minimum level of cover you will need.
- Third party, fire and theft: offers the same cover as third-party insurance, with the additional benefit of covering the vehicle in your possession in the event of fire damage or theft.
- Comprehensive: this offers all the above benefits, but it also covers the costs of damaged occurred to your own vehicle. This offers you the best level of cover as a motor trader. But always remember you are only covered for the trade value of the vehicle insured.

Road risk insurance is perfect for all motor traders, regardless of whether they operate part-time or full-time. Traders need to have a road risks insurance policy as a minimum to make sure they are covered to carry out their business on customer vehicles. Some traders may not even need the cover, depending on how they carry out their business. Road risk insurance is most common for traders who work from home, which is normally not considered to be a business premises.
