Anyone on here got a policy that covers several cars?

 

At the moment I've got 3 policies, which seems a bit daft, especially as I can only drive one at a time :-)

 

... and I'm also in the habit of going out any buying a car on a whim.

 

Can you get a 'traders' policy as a private individual?  ... or any other suggestions?

 

cheers

 

Mike

From my Dads experience, its cheaper to go traders depending on what cars you have!

 

if your going for more powerful but not OTT cars to the point the insurance covers that car then traders..

 

he had, Two work vans, Toyota Supra, Rover Turbo on his + his cars he was car dealing!

 

Cheers

My mate used to have a traders policy.

Unsure if this is for all traders policy's but he was only covered for cars he didn't own.

Do you need to have a motor based company to have a traders insurance or can anyone get one?

 

I run my own company but not motor based so not sure if that would help?

I think Shifty has mentioned having a policy with Tradex.

 

Perhaps contact them and explain your situation and see if they can help?

it's personal fleet tradex do, or something similar.

 

as for traders policies plod and insurers are more than wise to people scamming them, have seen a few people have cars seized that they have been driving on a traders policy.
