We offer specialist breakdown and recovery policies for anyone in the motor trade, covering you for a wide range of issues including home start, fuel drainage cover and assistance for up to 8 individuals.
The rescue policies are available to anyone who operates within the trade, including those selling new and used cars, repair services and mechanics, and valet services; we cater for both full and part time traders, so even if you work in other areas alongside your motor business you can still be covered under our terms and conditions.
Unicom Insurance has over 20 years of experience in providing this type of cover, and we work with a large network of vendors to supply you with exactly the right policy to suit your requirements. Our team can provide you a policy tailored to your needs, and we offer highly respected customer service at all times.
In the event of a breakdown which cannot be repaired or where the vehicle cannot be made safe to drive, we offer three main options to help get you moving again:
In the event of a breakdown at home or within 1 mile of your home base, we offer a homestart option as follows. We will attempt a repair on site, and if we cannot achieve this within 1 hour, we will transport the vehicle, driver and up to 7 passengers to an appropriate local garage (within 15miles). You will then be responsible for the cost of repair.
Unicom will also provide an emergency driver, if you are taken ill or have an injury sustained during your trip and there is nobody else available to drive. The driver will take you to your destination or return you and any passengers to your starting point. Note that a medical certificatewill be necessary in order to receive this benefit.
To discuss your specific requirements, please enter your details in the form at the bottom of this page, and one of our friendly team members will be in touch. In addition to a rescue policy, we can also provide you with motor trade liability insurance, road risk cover, and combined insurance products.
If the vehicle you are travelling in cannot be made safe to drive at the place you have broken down, and cannot be repaired the same day at a suitable local garage, we will choose the most appropriate solution from one of the following options:
We also provide a more general motor trade road risks insurance policy, liability insurance policies and combined insurance policies. If you need any advice on which insurance is right for you and your business, please call us for details on the number above.
