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

When taking out a mechanics 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 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. If you operate as a mobile mechanic, you will need to choose this option as the vehicles and contents inside your van will come under premises cover.
