Tyre dealers insurance

We know the risks of the tyre trade. And we can arrange tyre dealer insurance to help protect you against them.

What is tyre dealer insurance?

Selling and fitting tyres is a specialist trade. It takes skill and precision – but even the most careful tyre dealers face risks.

A typical tyre dealer policy addresses your most pertinent risks with three key covers: business interruption, public liability and professional indemnity.

Together, these can cover your business for loss, damage and third-party personal injury – and the legal fees that come with it.

What’s covered?

  • Commercial property, business interruption, customer motor vehicle

    Minimum conditions may apply.

  • Choose from $10 million or $20 million public liability cover limit

    The limit of liability is the maximum amount that can be provided under the insurance policy.

  • Broad limit options available for professional indemnity cover

    The limit of liability is the maximum amount that can be provided under the insurance policy.

  • Electronic equipment breakdown cover

    Minimum conditions may apply.

  • Money, theft and glass cover

    Minimum conditions may apply.

  • Coverage specific to business location (with exceptions)

    Exceptions include general property and motor vehicle.

The answer depends on how often your business changes.

As a rule of thumb, we recommend you review your policy at least once a year. This will ensure your business’s current risk exposures are covered.

But major changes – such as business growth, greater work complexity or expanded services – should always prompt an insurance review.

Some insurers need to know about certain changes in accordance with your duty of disclosure. If your business has changed recently, contact the Marsh motor trades team to update your policy.

A number of risks are emerging in the tyre industry. To expand your coverage further, you might consider cyber insurance and management liability insurance.

Why cyber insurance? Cyber attacks are becoming increasingly common. And nearly half of them affect small business. If you store customer data and business information online, you could be exposed.

Why management liability? The tyre industry faces increasing regulatory and statutory scrutiny. Management liability cover could help protect you – and your employees – against fines, claims and legal action in the event of a violation.
