Motor Traders Alert: Be Safe On The Roads This Winter

Frosty mornings, icy roads, spending precious minutes of your morning rush hour de-icing the car...we all know that "the most wonderful time of the year" can bring hazardous driving conditions along with it. For 2013, November and December have not been too disruptive until now, but forecasters anticipate an influx of colder, icier weather just in time for the Man In Red's arrival.


We hear the same advice every year; drive slower, allow for greater stopping distances between vehicles, use higher gears and lower revs on dangerous surfaces, but what you also need to bear in mind is are you adequately covered by your insurer, perhaps for policy aspects that you may not have thought of?

At Powell Commercial, we pride ourselves on our flexible "Motor Trade Combined" policy, which is by far one of our most in-demand products. If you are operating in the motor trade on a daily basis, you need a comprehensive cover to ensure that you are fully protected in all aspects of the industry.

As well as Vehicle Repairs and Servicing, Cover for Owned and Customer Vehicles, Public Liability and Engineering Inspection, our Motor Trade Combined Policy can be modified to suit smaller independent garages or larger public dealerships. It also protects against damage to property owned by you as the trader, as well as your liability exposure. A problem faced by many motor traders is that they require a flexible policy to also cover young drivers, friends and family members on company vehicles, as well as accompanied and unaccompanied demonstration use cover, which not everyone is happy to provide- at Powell Commercial we can offer this, so you can rest assured knowing that you and your business are in safe hands this winter.

It's always comforting to know that in the event of a breakdown, you can call your insurance provider for roadside assistance. But for complete peace of mind, take out a Motor Trade Combined policy with Powell Commercial. We'll make sure you're fully protected, whatever the weather this Christmas.
