Motor Trade Insurance for Older Cars

Insuring Your Older Vehicles on a Motor Trade Insurance Policy

Finding an insurance policy that provides a good, reliable recovery service is essential if you run a business – particularly if you work in the motor trade industry. If you’re a mobile valeter who relies on a vehicle to reach customers, your vehicle is key to your business and without it your commercial activity could be severely disrupted.

Even the most modern cars can’t guarantee they won’t break down; but the older your car is, the more likely it is that sooner or later it’ll need the help of a recovery service.

According to the Society of Motor Traders and Manufacturers (SMMT), 6.7 million old or used cars were bought in 2012 and the average age of a car in the UK in 2012 was 7.59 years.

Yet buying used vehicles for your commercial fleet can be a wise move – saving you money and increasing your profit margin. That’s why it’s advisable to invest in a good motor trade insurance policy that will provide you with a reliable breakdown service – just in case.
