Imagine you have basic road risk policy that gives you the right to test drive vehicles out on public roads. You just fit a brand new exhaust, and unfortunately, you meet with an accident on a test. You have the necessary insurance, so the law is on your side but what about the damage suffered by your customer’s vehicle? Moreover, what if the accident was the fault of your workmanship? Take another scenario where you change the tyres of a car but forget to tighten one of the wheels and that results in a mishap for your customer. Will your primary road risk cover protect you when your client sues you for damages? Our tyre fitters insurance can help prepare all such unforeseen events.
