What Is Motor Trade Insurance?
It is a legal requirement for any motor vehicle to have adequate motor insurance if it is to be used or left on a public highway. Motor Traders therefore need cover in order to be able to legally drive their clients’ vehicles. Motor Trade insurance typically covers the specified person or persons to drive any motor vehicle for motor trade purposes.

Can I obtain Motor Trade Insurance Online?
Motor trade insurance is available online but at CRS Consultants this is not something that we recommend. The online quote systems generally makes too many assumptions to push the quotation down and may not in fact cover you every need and some of the questions are a little vague with your responses. Many articles have been written by various media publications highlighting that reduced policy benefits and much larger insurance excesses often apply on many online motor trade insurance quotes.
