  Scrap Dealer

There are plenty of potential risks involved with running a breaker, salvage or scrap yard and those working in one will already be fully aware of them. It is crucial that you have a policy in place that will protect you against any potential risks.

A scrap yard is full of dangers. With so many damaged cars piled on top of each other and machinery, if anything were to go wrong it could be fatal. This includes machinery such as crushing machines and cranes. There is a higher chance of yourself or your employees becoming injured whilst dismantling cars.

If you work in the Motor Trade industry as a breaker, salvage or scrap operator, you need to find an insurance policy that understands your needs. It must also be aware of the risks associated with your business, and is able to offer the cover that’s right for you.

What Are The Different Policy Types That I Can Take Out?

When taking out a breakers salvage insurance policy, you’ll be asked which type of cover you’d like to purchase. There are two levels of cover. Here are your options:

Road Risk

This is perfect for those based at home rather than at a set premises. This helps cover the vehicles that are in the trader’s possession when on the road. This will help with situations such as driving a vehicle from your garage to a driveway, picking up or returning a vehicle to a customer, or testing a vehicle after repair work has finished.

Road Risk & Premises Cover

You will need a combined policy if you own and operate a business from a location, rather than out of your home. This is also essential if you employ workers, keep any stock, and store customers vehicles overnight.
