FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is an uninsured loss?
An uninsured loss is an expense that isn’t covered by your main motor trade insurance. For example, your excess, or out of pocket expenses for vehicle recovery, onward travel, or other costs you might incur because of a car accident or motor insurance claim. These costs can add up, so having additional insurance to cover them is a sensible way to protect your wallet.
Does motor legal insurance cover all the vehicles on my trade policy?
It’s actually the drivers on your motor trade policy who are covered by motor legal insurance for traders. This means that if you or someone who works for you needs to make a claim and they are a named driver on your policy, they’ll be able to do so, provided they’re driving a vehicle in connection with your business and not their own private car.
