Car Dealer Insurance.

Cost-effective and extensive cover for car sales and dealers.

Having cost-effective and extensive cover for your car sales and dealership operation is a vital part of business. Most car sales insurance comes in the form of a generic motor trade cover. This means you’re paying for options you don’t need, and may not actually be covered in areas where you do need it. With our car sales insurance, you’re guaranteed a tailor-made policy that saves you money and makes sure you’re covered. Garagecover are specialists in this field and have been for over 30 years. All this and more along with up to 6 years no claims bonus up to 60% – most of our competitors are around 35%.

Motor trade policyholders are responsible for ensuring that the Motor Insurance Database (MID) is accurate and up to date.

xThe Motor Insurance Database (MID) is the central record of all insured vehicles throughout the United Kingdom. This database is managed by the Motor Insurers' Bureau (MIB) and is used by the DVLA and Police to enforce motor insurance law. The information within the MID is key to ensuring all the vehicles on our roads are insured and legal to drive. Under current law, it is an offense to be the keeper of a vehicle without insurance unless you have obtained a Statutory Off Road Notice (SORN) from the DVLA. It is the responsibility of motor trade professionals to ensure the MID is up-to-date with all relevant data.
