Road risk insurance is usually sufficient for anyone operating from a residential address but if you run your motor trade business from a business premise, maintain stock of spare parts, cars and tools, have an active staff to take care of your customer’s needs, then you need combined premises insurance.
A combined premises cover is a comprehensive insurance that includes the necessary road risk policy but with several additional insurances that any motor trade business needs. It does not matter whether you run a detailing business, car workshop, tyre fitting service or car showroom – if you operate from a business premise, you need combined premise and business contents policy.
The law mandates that you should have road risk policy to drive customer vehicles on the road and public property. Why should you pay a higher premium for holistic combined premises cover? Well, your business faces greater risks when you keep stock of cars, spare parts, hire employees, rent a business address and deal with customers daily. Road risk cover may legally allow you to work and drive customer vehicles, but it does not protect against all other business-related risks.
Bespoke Combined Premises Cover
At Insurance Partnership, we can give you a bespoke combined premises that include covers for only those risks that you want to protect against. You get to choose what to include, the indemnity level, voluntary excess and even take advantage of any cumulative no-claim bonuses you may have amassed over the years.
Our combined premises cover is unique because we listen to your needs. We do not believe in a “one size fits all” approach when dealing with a large business such as yours. And when we say large, we mean any motor trade business that operates from its own business premise. A car dealership’s insurance requirements will vary from that of a garage. Our combined premises motor trade insurance is bespoke and configured to your exact nature and setup of business.
When you buy combined premises cover from us, we include the core road risk policy, plus premise cover and business content cover. In short, the least you get is insurance on your business address and stock. You can choose to take additional covers such as improve the road risk by adding third party fire and theft or even comprehensive cover. You can even add employer liability, public liability, demonstration cover and the likes.
Configuring or changing an existing combined premises cover is simple with Insurance Partnership. Your current cover continues, and any new policy you take is clubbed into a single cover with a single premium instead of multiple premiums and due dates.
In short, be as exhaustive as you can when explaining the nature and extent of your motor trade business. That will allow us to prepare the perfect combined premises cover and simplify the process for our underwriters and insurers.
We don’t deal with one or two insurers but with all the main underwriters in the UK. That gives us a unique perspective on finding the lowest prices with the best coverage. Our combined premises are fully customizable because we deal with so many insurers rather than just a handful.

Whatever your need be, we at Insurance Partnership can prepare a bespoke combined premises motor trade insurance with business content cover. Don’t forget to tell us if you have accumulated no-claim bonus from your past motor trade insurance; it can help bring the price down to a good extent. Alternatively, you can decide on a higher voluntary excess to further reduce the cost of insurance, though we suggest against doing this as it reduces your indemnity.
